Your goal for this paper is to help me find good movies to use in this class.
Choose 2 movies from the list that have something in common (theme, period, event, etc.).
Your thesis should be an argument for which, if either, would make a good movie to use in class. You might also suggest one or more scenes from the movies rather than the entire movie.
The body of your paper should be an analysis of both movies' themes, strengths, and weaknesses. The two key pieces to analyze are a) historical accuracy and b) relevance to US foreign policy.
Your paper should include a lot of details from history and from the movies.
Use at least two sources per movie. These should be scholarly sources. One source can be the textbook.
1500 words minimum.
Papers and Essays will be graded holistically, based on whether you:
• have a strong, analytical thesis (i.e. – do you discuss how and the why rather than just the who/what/when/where) that answers the prompt.
• support your thesis with plenty of detail
• demonstrate an understanding of the historical context
• organize your essay effectively
• use college level writing

Nature and Man in Charles Darwin, Alexander Pope, and “Genesis”Paper instructions:
Nature and Man in Charles Darwin, Alexander Pope, and “Genesis”
The essay is based on Charles Darwin's “On the Origin of Species”, and “The Descent of Man”, Alexander Pope's “Essay on Man”, and “Genesis” (Old Testament). I'd prefer to see an essay clearly focused on Darwin, but exploring the other texts as well. This is not a research paper, so citations should be limited only to those texts. The goal of this essay is to show the writer's deep thought, personal views and critical thinking rather than specific knowledge.

The Question of Small Government (from Thomas Jefferson to Ron Paul)
Paper # 1 The Question of Small Government (from Thomas Jefferson to Ron Paul):
Many people in American history, both liberals and conservatives, have argued for limiting the size of government. Early presidents like Thomas Jefferson, famous philosophers like Henry David Thoreau and modern politicians such as Ron Paul are just few examples among those wanting to radically diminish the role of government. Not only do they not want government to legislate morality, but they also want most governmental regulatory agencies to be dismantled. This type of libertarian stance is controversial even among those who emphasize individual rights.
Is this type of libertarian stance workable? Would the lack of government regulations in regard to the shared resources lead to corporate rape and pillage of the common good? For example, wouldn’t the lack of environmental regulations lead to more pollution and environmental disasters? Is it desirable to have no working safety laws, banking laws, any type of welfare, or a strong military? Discuss these themes.

—- FINANCIAL RESEARCH PROJECT ——- Company for analysis: John Deere You are a financial analyst with the mythical High Technology Corporation (“HTC”). HTC is an established manufacturer of a line of electronic components for industrial-use machinery, which services an international market. A competitive technical and economic product evaluation has determined that John Deere (a real publicly-traded company) is the best potential candidate for a long-term commitment. John Deere is offering a competitively favorable deal. However, based on some serious general and economic concerns about the fallout of companies in the industry in general, the CEO has asked your CFO to conduct a financial analysis of John Deere to determine if it is prudent to commit to this company's product line. The cost of cutting over to the new product line is significant and any interruption in support during the next few years would adversely affect HTC's performance and profit. Specifically, the question is: will a commitment to John Deere be financially viable over the next two to three years? Your specific assignment is to research, analyze, and prepare a report for the CFO on the actual financial performance of John Deere for the last three years. In addition to reviewing the traditional financial performance indicators, you are also to review John Deere's past and current stock performance for the last one year. Your report is to consist of three parts: (1) An evaluation of John Deere's financial performance for the last three years. (2) An evaluation of John Deere's stock performance for the last one year. (3) Finally, a specific recommendation, with supporting rationale, as to whether or not John Deere's recent trend in financial and stock performance is of sufficient financial strength to warrant entering into a long-term commitment. To assist you in your task, the CFO has provided the following general guidance. Since it is recognized that the industry is undergoing a major contraction in selected markets, it is very important to comparatively evaluate John Deere's financial and stock performance trends against its Industry. You may wish to include all necessary and relevant financial performance and stock information, trends, and projections in supporting your recommendation. These factors may include, financial ratio trends and industry comparatives, capital spending, stock growth, Beta values, credit rating service valuations, bond rating valuations, and management and investment reports – when these documents are available. Research and analyze the following information for John Deere: · Annual Balance Sheets for the last three years. · The Income Statements for the last three years. · Annual reports, 10K or 10Q · Analysts’ reports on performance · Management reports or press releases Using this information the students have to develop evaluation of the financial performance for John Deere.
