Reading log on Robert Frost's Mending Wall

Robert Frost, 1874 – 1963

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
‘Stay where you are until our backs are turned!'
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of outdoor game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.'
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
'Why do they make good neighbors? Isn’t it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That wants it down.' I could say ‘Elves’ to him,
But it’s not elves exactly, and I’d rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.'

Iraq
Country Profile Assignment
Use the Country Profile Worksheet to complete this assignment. 
The approach to take with this exercise is to create a profile of the country you have been assigned.  The sections include political/legal, economic, social/cultural and technological (PEST-C) aspects and Hofstede’s Country Characteristics.  Complete the Country Profile Worksheet in bullet form for each key aspect. 
Example: 
Technological environment
o   Major technology firms located in country
o   Infrastructure in place (due to major firms and government programs)
o   Skilled employees available (demographic information supports high percentage of population have strong computer skills exiting high school)
Refer to Hofstede’s website for information on your assigned country.
The last part of the worksheet is based on your analysis of the country and the business ideas that you suggest for that country.  Explain why your idea would be appropriate and support them with logic.
The completed document must be no greater than five pages and will not be accepted if it exceeds the limit.  Papers that have any amount of plagiarism will receive a zero and will be reported to the Dean’s office as an academic offence.
This is an individual project.  Late papers are not accepted however early submissions are welcomed.

Why people use smart phone so much
Writing Project 1: Researching a Phenomenon

Why people use smart phone so much


Length: 1000-1400 words (not including heading, title, or References. Only count words in the introduction, body, and conclusion.)
Normal formatting: (one inch margins, Double-spaced, 12-pt Times New Roman)
Scoring: 35% of your course grade:
  • Outline = 10% project
  • First Draft (peer reviewed) = HW points
  • Second Draft (teacher evaluated) = 50% project
  • Final Draft (teacher evaluated) = 40% project

Topic: Choose a current phenomenon that has many possible causes, none of which are proven as the 100% true/single cause.


Project description:                           This project will allow you to research some possible causes of a current phenomenon in which you are interested.  Your job is to investigate possible factors that may cause your topic, and to evaluate how influential those factors seem to be.  You may start by simply trying to find current published research that explains some causes, or you may hypothesize—think of your own answers, and then research to see how accurate they are, or you may use a combination of both (“Here’s my hypothesis, here’s what the research says about it, and here’s a cause that this or other research suggests).   
Remember, this is not a simple cause and effect paper where the causes are concretely known/proven.  This is nota persuasive paper—you are not trying to argue or make people believe you.  This is informative—just finding and evaluating some possible causes.


Project Requirement Checklist:
  • At least three reliable sources used for evidence
    • All published in English
    • No Wikipedia, Ask.com, Baidu, or similar web pages…

  • References list in formal APA format including doi’s or URLs .

  • (Introduction) What is your topic (a phenomenon)? Why is it important to your audience? What is your research question? (You need an explicitly written question in the intro)


  • (Body) What are the possible causes you found/hypothesized? (3-4 of them)
    • Consider: What did you think/hypothesize were some causes and what did you discover about your hypotheses?  What other causes did you find in the research?
    • What does the evidence suggest regarding each possible cause?
      • Write an evaluation of each possible cause based on the research, and your logical analysis of it—does it seem to be a strong factor, not a strong factor, something in the middle? Why?
        • Do not ignore evidence or evaluate the possible cause based only on your opinion.

  • (Conclusion) What is your final summary answer/discovery/reflection?  Suggestions:
    • Does one hypothesis seem strongest, some stronger than others, none seem strong, all seem weak, no one seems to know? 
    • Where/how could/should we do more research? 
    • Why is this important to the world?: How does this topic or the possible causes affect your audience, society, a specific group…?

  • Use of appropriate phrasing/qualifying statements (seems to be, might be, could be…)

Remember to consider the organization: As you write and research, you may have to re-organize the sequence of main points (possible causes) depending on what you discover about their validity or level of influence.  Which should come first, and which should come last in the essay…

This is not a “Cause and Effect” paper.
This is not a “Persuasive/Argument” paper.

This is a paper in which you research hypotheses.

People often look at a situation and think that they know what caused that situation. For example: “The meal plan at OU is so expensive because OU is making a profit from it.” Many students believe this, some are even very sure that it is true, but it is possible that not many have ever researched it to find out if profit really is the, or a, cause. 

Sometimes people believe these factors are the causes because it seems to make sense to them—they feel like it is logical. Sometimes people just assume that these are the true factors that cause the situation; this may be based on a personal experience, because someone else told them it is true, or a combination of these and other elements, but not based on true research or evidence. 
People often believe things that have not been researched or proven. Your task is to think of a situation, condition, action, process, rule…  the causes of which you and/or others often think you/they understand, but the factors that cause that topic have not been proven—there’s no real, commonly-known evidence.  You will think of the general topic, then you will think of (or do a survey to find) the top three factors that people believe are the causes of that topic.  For example:

Topic: “The meal plan at OU is expensive.”

Factors that may cause this:
  1. OU earns a large profit from the meal plans.
  2. OU has to cover the high overhead costs.
  3. OU uses a buffet service style, which is not efficient.

It is of highest importance to note that:
1.      Those factors have not been proven as causes to the general public—people generally have no real evidence, they just believe or assume that those are the true causes. 
2.      There is also no single or easy place in which we could find the causes for this situation—it is not commonly known or researched by anyone. If we wanted to know the causes, we would have to do all of the research and critical thinking ourselves; we would not just find the answer published somewhere.

You will be researching the alleged causes of your topic. You be trying to find out if these factors are truly causing the situation. Through your research, you may find that none of these factors are truly causes. You may find that two are causes, but one is not. You may find that all of them are causes; maybe they are all equal causes, or maybe one factor seems to be the biggest cause, but the others are also causes or influences.

Your main goal is not to prove that the factors are causes. Your main goal is to find out if those factors seem to be or seem not to be causes. You will be doing objective research: creating hypotheses and researching their validity. Your effectiveness (and grade) in this project is notbased on whether you prove any of these factors to be true causes, it is based on how well you objectively research these factors and evaluate the validity of them as causes. If your research seems to support that one of the factors is a cause, then you show that research and make the evaluation that this does seem to be at least one of the causes. If your research seems to support that one of the factors is not a cause, then you show that research and make the evaluation that this factor does not seem to be one of the causes.  For example, even if I really believe that the meal plan is so expensive because OU is making a profit from it, if the evidence I can find seems to show that they are not making a profit, then I have to show that evidence and state that the evidence seems to show that this factor is not causing the price to be high.
