Write a report about the New York Philharmonic concert performance following guidelines in the “Guide to Writing a Concert Report” and standards listed in the Concert Report Rubric.
Include the following: Concert performer(s) and program content, including title and composer as performed in sequence (10%) Details of the performance venue, including venue, arrangement of musicians and instruments, descriptions of instruments, and audience responses (20%) Musical elements for each of the four movements (listed below) following the “Guide to Writing a Concert Report” – use time marks (00:00) as a reference in the narrative (70%)
Show that you’ve learned something in this course. Use your newly developed musical vocabulary. Don’t say, for example, “The instruments moved the melody around.” Rather, say specifically, “The violins convincingly effected a modulation of the theme through different keys from 0:45-1:24.” (Which keys doesn’t matter; you’d have to have perfect pitch to know that, and only 1 person in 10,000 has perfect pitch.)
Use correct vocabulary. Please don’t call an overture or a set of instrumental variations a “song.” This will drive your instructor berserk.
It is a piece, composition, work, symphonic movement, and so on. Unless there is a text and your piece is sung, it is not a song. 800 word count minimum required for credit.
A quantitative analysis can give people the necessary information to make decisions about policy and planning for a program or organization. A good quantitative analysis leaves no questions about the quality of data and the authority of the conclusions.
Whether in school completing a project or at the highest levels of government evaluating programs, knowing how to write a quality quantitative analysis is helpful. A quantitative analysis uses hard data, such as survey results, and generally requires the use of computer spreadsheet applications and statistical know-how. Your analysis will be 4-5pgs (does not include data visualizations), double-spaced, Times New Roman, 11 or 12pt font.SECTION 1: INTRODUCTIONExplain why the report is being written in the introduction. For the purposes of this assignment, explain what this cross-tabulation may tell us about our society and why this may be important. If there is existing research on the issue, you can reference (and include a citation) prior justification for this research. You can also include an imagined audience for whom the report is being prepared. For instance, will this influence policy? Public perception? Future research? Etc.SECTION 2: METHODSDescribe the methods used in collecting data for the report. If you are using data provided from the General Social Survey (this would include the example cross-tabulations provided), then you will refer to the methods of data collection used by the General Social Survey (GSS). This information is available in the textbook as well as the GSS website (gss.norc.org). Discuss how the data was collected and tell the reader how the survey was designed. Discuss the sample, for instance provide the sample size, or the number of people surveyed. Tell the reader if the sample was representative of the target population. Break down the data by gender, race, age and any other pertinent subcategory. Tell the reader about any problems with data collection, including any potential biases in the survey.SECTION 3: DATA VISUALIZATIONSInclude the cross-tabulations showing visual representations of the results. Depending on the cross-tab you choose, you may also want to include a bar graph or other visualization.SECTION 4: DATA EVALUATIONWrite about the pertinent findings, or the ones you think matter most to your interests. You should think of the major concepts we have covered in class and include them where relevant. You may want to discuss frequencies and percentages here to justify your evaluation of importance.SECTION 5: CONCLUSIONSHere you will write conclusions after evaluating all the data. The conclusion can include an action item for the reader to accomplish. For example, if this data is aimed at changing policy, then discuss how policy-makers should proceed making new policies that consider this data. You may also advise that more research needs to be done before any solid conclusions can be made. Point the reader towards additional research that would need to be conducted. Do we need to learn more about other subgroups? Do we need a longitudinal study?

Your tutor will give
you a controversial topic at random—some people believe your topic is true,
some people believe your topic (or elements of your topic) is not true. You
will need to briefly describe your topic and critically compare the evidence
put forward by each side.
You will be judged on
your ability to critically analyse your topic, specifically: you must state the
claims made by people who believe in your topic (and list the reasons/evidence
they provide for these claims); then compare this evidence with the evidence
for the claims made by the people who do not believe in your topic; and give
reasons why it is either rational or irrational to believe in the topic
(or, if your topic is complex, describe exactly which of the claims are
reasonable and which are not—or to what extent certain claims should be
believed or not).
As each of you has a
different topic, it is difficult to prescribe the format your essay should
take. Through researching your topic, you may discover that there is overwhelming
evidence against those who believe it, and in this case you would spend a
little more of your time explaining why it is that people would begin to
believe in something so patently absurd. Alternatively, you may find that neither
full belief nor full disbelief appropriate—in which case you would argue where
believe is reasonable (and where is not), and to what extent, and why.
You are not marked on
your ability to describe the topic, but rather how you provide two sides
of a case, then judge which is the strongest and provide reasons for
your judgment—remember: this is an argumentative essay. You are not graded
on the position you take, but rather on how you support your arguments and address
You will be graded on your ability to answer the question in a formal, academic essay style. Lecturesand tutorials will be used to help you do this, and SLS is available for additional help.

reason(s) against your thesis. Further details will be given in tutorials.

Of Miracles: Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. The existence
of a giant humanoid roaming the woods would be more miraculous than the
eyewitness testimony being based on fraud or faulty observation. As such, the Hume, Of Miracles Critical Thinking
Consideration suggests it is reasonable to reject the greater miracle (in this
case, the existence of a giant humanoid roaming the woods).
Situation: You have been asked to advise a financial services company with assets, staff and operations across Europe. They have a large presence in multiple cities across the continent, notably in France, Spain and an emerging presence in Poland.
The client is concerned about the strategic outlook for the security and business environment as well as threats to operations and regulatory challenges.
They are particularly worried about any anticipated changes to their three countries of interest over the rest of 2020 and into 2021.
The industry brief should be of no more than 800 words, and written with the knowledge that it will be presented at board level, highlighting the major threats in each country, focusing on the areas of highest risk.
Short Essay The goal of this essay is for you to compare and contrast several different religions, focusing on one specific aspect of religion. This short essay should be 400-500 words, which is approximately 3 paragraphs.
That means your paper should be focused and stick to substantive points. Read the instructions below carefully. You must rely exclusively on course material. If the topic you’re interested in is not covered in our textbook, lectures, or the resources I provided online through Canvas, please choose another topic that is.
How to go about this essay: First, choose one aspect of religion that interests you. The following are examples of aspects of religion that you can choose to focus on: scripture, ritual, divinity, leadership, the soul, morality, origin stories, death. If you have another idea for an aspect to focus on, please consult with me first.
Choose one aspect of religion to focus on. Next, choose three religions that we have already studied in class and compare and/or contrast how they relate to the aspect of religion you chose. This must be based on religions that we have studied so far in this course (which excludes Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and New Religious Movements). You may structure the essay any way you like, but be sure to relate all three religions to the specific topic you chose.
An important note about citations: If you quote anything, use quotation marks and include a footnote with your source. If you are drawing generally from the textbook but without quotation, you should still use a footnote to cite the page(s) in the text book from which you took your information. You do not need to cite the lecture or the PowerPoints (but don’t quote the PowerPoints, because I wrote them, and you shouldn’t quote me to me). How to do really, really well: A sophisticated paper will include some further analysis on your comparison and contrast. This analysis can relate to why this element of religion is meaningful; how it came to be that different traditions are similar or different regarding this element; or how the similarities and/or differences tell you something important about that tradition. What your grade will be based on: • substantial engagement with the prompt • accuracy in any of the traditions or concepts you refer to • academic style (including spelling and grammar, structure, clarity, sophistication) Style and submission instructions: Papers should be typed, double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12 pt. font with 1 inch (standard) margins. Papers must have a heading including your name, the date, the course, and the instructor’s name. Papers should also have a title. All papers must be submitted on TurnItIn through Canvas. No paper may include any writing that has been previously submitted for another class. The student’s paper should have a 0% similarity classification from TurnItIn. Plagiarism, intentional or otherwise, will result in a grade of F.
For this final assignment, you will complete a 2000-2500-word research paper (approximately 8- to 10-pages) in which you will analyze and synthesize literature on a selected topic, develop and support a thesis, and practice ethical scholarship, including the use of appropriate citation style.
Topic and Topic Selection: You will examine the impact of a crisis and resolution, whether political, social, economic or environmental, and seek to answer questions concerning group definitions, goals and justifications, the impact of the crisis, and ways in which the crisis is being or can be resolved. As you will be exploring and writing about this topic for most of this term, I urge you to choose a topic that you are interested in. You may choose a topic that you have explored before in some other context and in which you have been interested for some time. You might take this as as an opportunity to explore a topic that you don’t know much about. It might be a topic that is related to your major, or a topic of interest to you outside your educational and professional pursuits. Regardless of the direction you take, please keep in mind that handing in work that you produced for other classes constitutes academic plagiarism, and it will be treated as such. If you have any questions about your topic, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Note on Word Count/Page Length Requirements: The word count excludes endmatter items, such as a works cited page, and frontmatter items, such as a title page.However, you must include a works cited page, and you should plan to include frontmatter items (such as an abstract and/or a title page) in accordance with the guidelines of the style you are using (APA or MLA).
Your paper should be at least 2000-2500 words (about 8-10 pages), excluding frontmatter and endmatter.
•Include a descriptive title, page numbers in the header or footer, and a works cited page.
Take a picture of whatever source you are investigating, such as a street light, headlight, etc. Then, take another picture of the spectrum of that same light. Write a few sentences describing the spectrum you see and what kind of spectrum you think it is. Compare your spectrum with the spectra you took of the four gases (emission spectra) and the cove projector (continuous spectrum). It is really important that you give your best estimate of what type of spectrum you have – emission, continuous, or absorption. Do that for three other sources and put it all in one .docx or pdf document. Don’t forget to put your name, the date, and your astronomy class, at the top of your document!
The point is to take some data, analyze it and see what your results tell you. You are doing Citizen Science! Involve your family, spouse, kids etc and have fun doing this. Here is an example of what I want. This report does not have the student’s name on it to protect his/her privacy, but don’t forget to put your name at the top of the report
