Senate Bill 270 – Would prohibit single-use plastic bags and allow grocers to offer paper or reusable bags for a fee

Senate Bill 270 – Would prohibit single-use plastic bags and allow grocers to offer paper or reusable bags for a fee

Political Science –  INSTRUCTIONS FOR FINAL PAPER

Congratulations, you’ve been hired as a policy advisor to Governor Jerry Brown! Your first task is to write a 3-4 page memo recommending whether he should sign or veto one of the bills recently passed by the legislature and listed below. You need to tell your boss what’s really at stake in this piece of legislation and what effects it might have on the state of California. The governor trusts you to present relevant evidence from reputable sources to support your recommendation.

Step 1. Use bill below:


Senate Bill 270Would prohibit single-use plastic bags and allow grocers to offer paper or reusable bags for a fee


(Note: In reality, the governor has already signed or vetoed these bills, but you can ignore his actual decision while writing your memo)

Step 2. Research your bill using the following resources.

ü  Full-text of bills and legislative analyses available at: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/
ü  Relevant academic sources (articles, books) or think tank reports
ü  California newspapers
ü  General Google search using bill number (for example, “SB 25”) and “CA” or “California” to find the following:
o   Press releases from elected officials
o   Statements from organizations in favor of or opposed to the bill
o   Other background information from reputable sources (NO BLOGS!)

Step 3. Write a 3-4 page policy memo.

The governor is a busy man with lots of people clamoring for his time and attention. For your memo to be effective, it needs to be well organized and easy to read. Remember, policy memos are intended to be persuasive documents, but they are NOT personal opinion pieces. You must provide evidence to support your claims and conclusions.

DirecTV

DirecTV is one of the largest providers of satellite television in the world. It is a U.S.-based corporation but has subsidiaries throughout Latin America in countries such as Argentina, Chile, and Venezuela.
Latin America is volatile part of the world with issues of political strife and often extreme economic fluctuations. Inflation and currency exchange rates are often especially volatile in this part of the world. DirecTV Latin America even filed for bankruptcy protection in 2003 due to its many woes from the unrest and economic hardship in this part of the world. The company is currently doing much better but still faces a lot of risks.

Using the online library, do some research on DirecTV and its operations in Latin America. Here are a some articles to get you started:

Ramachandran, S. (Feb. 14, 2013). DirecTV Profit Rises on Latin America Growth. Wall Street Journal (Online), New York, NY [Available in ProQuest]
Yao, D. (Feb 25, 2014). DIRECTV faces currency devaluation risks in Venezuela. SNL Kagan Media & Communications Report [Available in ProQuest]

Case Assignment

After researching DirecTV and reviewing the background materials on international financial management, write a 4- to 5-page paper addressing the following questions:
1.What major political events in Latin America are the biggest threat to DirecTV’s financial performance? What steps can be taken to protect against these risks?
2.What major international financial or economic risks in Latin American economies should DirecTV’s financial management team worry about the most? What can they do to hedge against these risks?
3.What major business risk from international competitors do you think DirecTV might face? What can it do to protect against these risks?

Philosophy

Paper instructions:
*****First off I will list the required readings. As posted by my professor, It is not enough just to include a quote from each text; you must discuss the relationship between your ideas and those found in the texts. So you will need to read the materials listed below and be able to access them on your own. After the required materials is exactly what my professor posted for the assignment. If there are any questions please keep an open clear communication with me. Thank you in advance for having interest in my paper.*******
REQUIRED MATERIALS:
The Consolations of Philosophy. Alain de Botton, Vintage International. 2001. ISBN: 0-679-77917-5 YOU MAY NEED TO BUY THIS….YOU CAN AT AMAZON.COM FOR A LOW PRICE OF 10$
Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic. DeGraf, Wann, Naylor, Horsey. Berrett-Koehler Publishers; 2nd edition (September 1, 2005). ISBN-10: 1576753573
Confession. Leo Tolstoy. W.W. Norton. 1984. ISBN: 0-39330192-3 Paperback
Note: Tolstoy’s work is available for free online; the others are available from a variety of online sellers, local bookstores, or your local library.


“The Good” in life, as defined first by the ancient Greeks, is the final or ultimate end at which our actions aim. It's the answer to the question of why you do what you do. For Epicurus, as we've seen, it was pleasure, though his explanation is much more complicated than might first come to mind. One is successful when this end is accomplished (adding perhaps the qualification “to the highest degree possible” or “to a reasonable degree”).
Another description is one's “philosophy of life.” Typically when someone asks the question “What's your philosophy of life?” I suspect the questioner himself doesn't quite understand what he is asking. The question might mean “What sense do you make of the way the world is?” or “What's the purpose of it all?” or “How do you deal with the tribulations of life?” or “Why have you chosen to live in the way you do?” The last interpretation is another way of asking “What's the Good in life?”
As I wrote in the introduction to this Unit, unless one knows where one is aiming (and perhaps why one is aiming that way at all) it's very unlikely that one will happen to hit the mark.
Your assignment is to write about what “the Good” will be in your life. What is the end or goal that is the guiding principle that determines why you act as you do? How does this conception of the Good build on the ideas that we have discussed throughout the course? Once you have a preliminary answer, ask yourself what problems there might be with your answer. For example, suppose you choose “wealth” as your goal. I imagine few people truly hold wealth as the final goal. Instead, they want certain goods that wealth usually brings: security, prestige, comfort, and so forth.
Your essay should be a minimum of 7 pages of content (do not count the title page or reference pages) using APA format. As in the previous essay, you must use standard 12 point font, 1 inch margins without extra spaces between paragraphs – papers that attempt to “pad” the length by changing margins/ font/ spacing/ etc, will lose points.
It must include substantive references to all the required readings for this course – Affluenza, The Consolations of Philosophy and Tolstoy's Confession, and may also include references from other relevant readings or course lectures as well. It is not enough just to include a quote from each text; you must discuss the relationship between your ideas and those found in the texts. For full credit, you must discuss how your idea of the good goes along with, or contrasts with, the ideas presented by at least 3 of the 4 philosophers that we covered in Consolations (Socrates, Epicurus, Montaigne, and Nietzsche).
