environment, or foreign/defense policy making. The project should be 8-10 pages in length
and should cite 10-15 sources using APA format. You may use Edwards end of chapter
Websites from Module 5, although you are encouraged to locate your own sites as well.
1. a clear statement of the issue, citing the specific positions in dispute.
2. the jurisdictional level at which the issue should be addressed.
3. the key players and influences, as well as their specific roles, including policymaking
and linkage institutions.
4. the specific actions or avenues you could/would/will take to directly involve yourself
in the issue and/or process as a citizen.

Title Page – It should be concise and descriptive. Creative wouldn't hurt! Your name, course
name and number, college and term should be listed.
Purpose of Study – The final project should include a succinct statement that explains why you
selected the particular area of interest and why it lends itself to a research paper. State the
purpose of your research and why it interests you. You should also identify the audience for
your work.
Opening Statement, Assumptions or Hypothesis
The project is a rigorous academic exercise and should be carefully thought out from
beginning to end. It is imperative that you resist presentation of opinion as fact, and instead
develop assumptions or hypotheses without reaching conclusions before you investigate the
topic.
The opening statement, argument or hypothesis focuses your ideas for the paper; it's your
argument, insight or viewpoint summarized into a sentence or two that gives the reader your
main idea. It present the rationale for you paper and clearly indicates why it is worth exploring.

PROPOSAL TO SOLVE A PROBLEM ESSAYPROPOSAL TO SOLVE A PROBLEM ESSAY (6 PAGES)
Paper details 
You must establish that the problem exists and this needs to be done by reference to external resources. You should find statistics or predictions from experts to substantiate the problem. Remember that you do not have to solve the problem, but you should offer a creative solution to an existing problem. This is not an essay that summarizes how other people have attempted to solve the problem – this would be a research paper. Instead, this is your opportunity to “think outside of the box” and offer up your own creative approach. Push the limits of what is possible and propose solutions you think “could” work. You need to keep your audience in mind and assume they might object to your proposal. Try to foresee an abjection and address it in the essay. Remember your proposal need not completely solve the problem, but it should work toward viable solutions. If you choose to use more outside research, please use the O'Malley and Varley essays as models for parenthetical citation in the MLA style. At the end of your document, be sure to provide a Works Cited/ Bibliography list of sources. This was the assignment guidelines for the essay I need to right, and this is for ENG 101 college composition.

Pavement Distress Case StudyPavement Distress Case Study
Paper details 
 I am required to select a damaged section of a local road in UAE (minimum 300 meters) with at least 3 different types of flexible pavement distresses. So I choose a 2 lanes road traveling in same direction. It contains bleeding, alligator and pothole failures. I will send to you the pictures to include it in report OR keep an empty space of the pictures which I will include to the final report)

TECHNICAL REPORT WRITING GUIDELINE

The following are guidelines for the format of the Technical Report. The report should contain at least 1500 textual words in length. Paragraphs are to be double-spaced. Font is to be Times Roman 12.

The report should be written in a style that is appropriate to an academic or professional environment. 

The student should make effective use of visuals by deciding whether to include them in the main body of the report or the appendix. Graphics should be correctly numbered and titled.

The student should document and acknowledge all sources of information and ideas in the report. Plagiarized work will not be acceptable. The proper use of quotations is essential.

The report for this assignment must include the following:
 Introduce the case study.
 Discuss general causes of pavement damage.(with pictures)
 Describe the failure that you have in your road.
 Investigate the causes of failure for this portion of road.
 Develop a Maintenance/Rehabilitation plan (Include signs and other safety measures).
 Access an international and local standard or code of practice for road maintenance (Note: if you cannot enter UAE code please inform me so I will try to provide it for you).
 Compare and contrast the maintenance and rehabilitation processes for at least two distresses between the international codes and local codes and identify key similarities and differences for serviceability and maintenance requirements for the portion of road selected.
 Recommended solutions/Remedies of anticipated problems.
 Conclusion.


Use your own words. Quote if necessary but reference properly. List all resources used at the end of your report with attachments as appendices where needed. The conclusion is to include a reflective discussion on what you have learned as part of completing this project and a projection on how this will help you be a better engineer.

Contract Law Problem Question – Termination or renegotiation the contractContract Law Problem Question – Termination or renegotiation the contract
Paper details 
Missan is one of the largest manufacturers of motor vehicles in the world. It builds hybrid cars at a large plant in Sunderland. Last year the plant produced 490,000 cars, which were exported to 92 countries. In July 2008, Missan had found two companies to manufacture specialized battery packs for its newest model hybrid, called the Tigre. One – Brax – was based in Birmingham, while the other – Depeche – was based in Canterbury. Brax is 40 years old, manufactures electrical components for a wide range of car manufacturers, and has some 500 employees. Depeche is a much newer and smaller company – Missan is its largest customer and it employs just 150 workers. The 2008 contract was Depeche’s first contract with Missan. Missan sought them out because Brax’s factory was operating at maximum capacity, and Missan needed an additional supplementary supplier so that it could expand its production of the Tigre. Depeche’s factory was capable of producing 800 batteries a day, and reliably produced 600.

In negotiating the contract with Missan, it was envisaged that Depeche’s operations would grow steadily, in line with demand from Missan. Under Clause 12, Depeche have a firm obligation to supply 10,000 batteries a month, with delivery at the end of the month. Missan must accept and pay for these 10,000, ensuring a guaranteed monthly income for Depeche. However, Missan anticipated that it would sometimes require a higher number of batteries. Thus, under Clause 13, Missan may also order, and Depeche must use ‘all reasonable endeavours’ to make available for delivery, any additional number of batteries, in excess of 10,000 by the end of the month. Missan may make such an order at any time during the first 14 days of the month. Depeche is not under a firm obligation to supply the excess order in full, but if it does not supply all of the batteries requested, it must make a ‘good faith estimate’ of the number it can supply. Clause 22 of the contract provides that Depeche’s liability for ‘failure to use reasonable endeavors’ to meet an order made under Clause 13 is limited to 125% of the cost price of the number of batteries ordered but not delivered.

The contract had been operating for four years when, on 18 August 2012, a fire damaged part of Brax’s plant. They informed Missan that it would be six months before they were back to full manufacturing capacity. As a result of the shortfall from Brax, Missan needed an additional 22,000 batteries a month so that it could meet its obligations to its purchasers. On 19 August 2012, they placed an order for 10,000 additional batteries with Depeche, in accordance with Clause 13. Missan anticipated that they could source the remainder elsewhere. Missan did not anticipate any difficulty with this, as Depeche had previously fulfilled orders of up to 7,000 additional batteries, and their manufacturing capacity had been growing steadily.

On this occasion, however, Depeche informed Missan that they would be unable to supply 10,000 additional batteries at such short notice. Their customer base has grown, and their factory is being used to fulfill obligations to other purchasers as well as to make batteries for Missan. However, Depeche offered to supply 5,000 additional batteries by the end of the month, if Missan would pay double the usual price, to facilitate paying staff overtime. Missan agreed, under protest. It was able to source the remaining batteries it needed from an alternative supplier in Japan over a period of several weeks. Taking into account delivery costs, these were 2.5 times more expensive than Depeche’s contract price. Missan also had to pay significant liquidated damages to some of its purchasers, because it was late in supplying cars due to a shortage of batteries in the manufacturing plant.

Depeche have now approached Missan seeking to negotiate a new contract to cover the next five months of Brax’s reduced capacity. However, Missan is torn between considering this new contract, and terminating the July 2008 contract altogether.

Advise Missan on whether they should terminate or renegotiate their contract with Depeche.

Things to keep in mind:
– Cases to support the analysis
– In the problem question scenario, Clause 13 refers to 'all reasonable endeavours', whereas Clause 22 uses simply 'reasonable endeavours'. both clauses supposed to have the same threshold, as they refer to the same contractual obligation
they are intended to refer to the same obligation and the same threshold, but you may wish to discuss the differences between the courts' treatment of the phrases “all reasonable endeavours” and “reasonable endeavours” in your answer.

There is also the need to use good policy arguments – by policing arguments we mean the sorts of policy arguments made by judges in previously decided cases. In contract, these will usually be arguments about the principles of freedom of contract, sanctity of contract, security of exchange, consumer protection etc require, or arguments about the needs of the particular market in which the parties are dealing (certainty,flexibility, business common sense, commercial practice etc). You can support your policy arguments by judicial quotation.
Policy arguments are used in support ofdoctrinal arguments. You must have laid down a good discussion of the relevant case law, and outlined the possible legal solutions/conclusions before you introduce policy.
A good place to use a policy argument is where there are two possible legal solutions open to a judge (eg where there are conflicting Court of Appeal judgments) and you want to suggest which of those two approaches should be followed. For example, one approach might lend greater certainty to particular kinds of market transaction but the other might do more to respect the parties' freedom of contract.
Make sure that your policy argument helps draw a conclusion on how the problem should be solved. You are not including the policy argument simply for the sake of critiquing an aspect of the law.This is not the place for quoting very theoretical articles either – the articles at the end of each chapter of the textbook will be more useful to you.
All that said, you have a very limited word count. So short, clearly expressed policy arguments are most appropriate in the context of this problem question.
