Abstract
A summary of your paper that introduces your reader to the topic you are about to discuss and its’ main points (Bullock, Goggin & Weinberg 2013, p562). There are 3 different types of major abstracts, there are Information Abstract, Descriptive Abstract & Proposal Abstract. Informative Abstracts state in one paragraph the essence of a whole paper about a study or a research project. That one paragraph must mention all the main points of parts of the paper: a description of the study or project, its methods, the results, and the conclusions. (Bullock, Goggin & Weinberg 2013, p150). Description Abstracts are usually much briefer then informative abstracts and provide much less information. Rather than summarizing the entire paper, a descriptive abstract functions more as a teaser, proving a quick overview that invites the reader to read the whole. And last but not least Proposal Abstracts contain the same basic information as informative abstracts, but their purpose is very different. You prepare proposal abstracts to persuade someone to let you write on a topic, pursue a project, conduct an experiment, or present a paper at a scholarly conference.

Apa Reasoning Behind Apa Papers

... Academic writing is ALWAYS in the third (3rd) person. Thus, the words ‘I’, ‘my’, ‘our’, etc. should not appear anywhere in the paper unless they are in a direct quote. Do not refer to course materials in a paper unless that material is properly referenced and cited. Writing “as shown in our text” is not a proper citation. All citations must follow APA guidelines. NEVER reference course discussions in a paper. REASON: The reader needs to be able to verify the references/citations if they desire to so. Regardless of the paper assignment, when in the academic setting, the assignment is ALWAYS a research assignment so treat it as such. In other words, use appropriate resources and NEVER rely solely on your course text(s). AUDIENCE: Write ALL papers as though your audience is someone who knows NOTHING about your topic. Make NO assumptions. Properly cite all material that is not totally your own, which in the case of academic writing, is practically all of the paper. Reference: Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2010). (6th ed.). APA: Washington, DC, pp. 62-63. Additional source: www.owl.english.purdue.edu...

The Catcher in the Rye: a Hint to the Past

...There are many ways that authors can show their readers the time period that their stories take place in. They can say it outright in the narrative, include obviously dated references, or attempt to vaguely hint at the time’s culture and events. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger is set in the late 1940s, early 1950s. Salinger paints an image for the readers, giving hints to let them figure out the time setting on their own. He mentions events just a few years past, references things that only would make sense in such a time, and goes even deeper, writing characters that most plausibly would have existed in such a culture, in such a time. When examining the historical aspects of The Catcher in the Rye, a reader can see how J. D. Salinger conveys the essence of the late 1940s; he does this through basic, obvious references to forms of entertainment, as well as through the more complex depths of the time period’s social constructs and the impending counterculture revolt of the 1960s. In the novel, many references are made to things that limit the possible time period for this novel. Many of these references dealt with forms of entertainment, from bar pianists to old-timey movies. Holden talks about his visit to a night club called Ernie’s which “was jam-packed…[but] it was pretty quiet, though, because Ernie was playing the piano” (Salinger 83). Compared to the nightclubs of today, this is pretty bland. Modern night clubs are overflowing with sweaty bodies dancing......

Font Your Name University of North Carolina School of Social Work Title of Paper Repeated Exactly As It Appears On Title Page This template was developed by Paul Rose of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. To make the template more practical for typical class papers, we have made minor alterations to Dr. Rose’s template (e.g., omitting Author Note, Abstract sections). If submitting a paper for publication, use Dr. Rose’s full template, which is available for free download at www.siue.edu/~prose/classes/APAFormatTemplate.doc To use this template, begin the body of your paper (your introduction) as the first paragraph beneath the title. Note that APA does not use the Introduction header: just plunge in. Add your text and delete the placeholder text used in the template. The rest of the text in this template provides hints about properly generating all the parts of your APA-formatted paper. APA style specifies that major components of the paper (abstract, body, references, etc.) each begin on a new page with the heading centered at the top of the page. The body of the text is typically divided into sections with headings such as Method, Results, and Discussion.

Mkt Simulation Hints

...MKT 230 – Marketing Simulation – Hints Dr. Melton Fall 2014 As the newly appointed CEO of Minnesota Micromotors, you are now responsible for designing and executing the company’s marketing strategy. This is an opportunity for you to integrate and apply concepts learned throughout the course. As a start, you may want to go back to Chapter 2 in the textbook and review the steps of the strategic planning process. We learned that a marketing strategy is: “the selection of a target market and creation of a marketing mix that will satisfy the needs of target market members.” (Pride and Ferrell, 2014, p. 42). So before beginning the simulation you will want to thoroughly analyze the current marketing situation and develop an overall marketing strategy. 1. What are MM’s core competences? What competitive advantages does MM possess (core competences matched to market opportunities)? What are MM’s internal strengths and weaknesses, and external opportunities and threats (SWOT)? How can internal strengths be matched to external opportunities going forward to create or strengthen competitive advantages for MM? 2. Next, understand what are MM’s marketing objectives in the simulation. Your goals are to maximize cumulative profit, average customer satisfaction, cumulative revenue and market share. Keep in mind that customer satisfaction can be an important driver of customer purchase behavior and can potentially lead to higher revenue and profit. When......

Bosten Beer Case Hints

...Case: Boston Beer Company Address the following questions in a 4-5 page write-up of the Boston Beer Company Case to explore the issue of Initial Public Offerings. 1) What do you think of Boston Beer’s business model relative to the traditional beer companies’ business model? Relative to Redhook and Pete’s? (Hint: consider their brewing, production, distribution, marketing strategies. How is each firm attempting to achieve its own sustainable comparative advantage in the market place?) 2) Evaluate Boston Beer’s performance relative to its peers (Compare BBC's ratios to the ratios of its peers in exhibit 4). (Hint: how do differences in operating strategies translate into differences in financial ratios? Are there any downside risks to BBC's contract brewing strategy?) 3) What is your assessment of the intrinsic value of Boston Beer’s stock at the time of the case? What should be its IPO price? (Some hints below: First, you should look at the P/E multiples for Pete's and Redhook around the IPO time for BBC. You should also look at the average amount the price seems to jump on the day of the IPO, and the EPS of BBC for 1994 and 1995. From this, you should figure out what the implied price per share for BBC should be in this market environment. Second, you should try to justify this price per share by doing FCF analysis.
