2.ssay 1: Person I Admire
This essay assignment is the culmination of all your previous work in this module. You have
in this module. You have already engaged in the beginnings of the writing process of this essay. You have:
Brainstormed ideas (see Chapter 11 in SMG) about the essay in the Discussion Board.
Condensed your ideas down into manageable points around a working thesis.
Displayed knowledge of Description essays from Learning Activities
Drafted a Writing Activity (WA2) about this Description essay.
Consulted with a writing tutor to find areas of strength and areas of improvement.
Finally, you will now compose the final draft of a description essay that:
contains a clear thesis
identifies clear points to support your thesis
engages in critical thought about the subject chosen
uses 2-4 main ideas (points) that support your overall essay thesis
allows you to expand on your chosen topic
This essay assignment represents the first steps in writing any written essay for any academic course. The idea of thesis and support are the cornerstones of all essays. They represent the last part of the writing process. However, you may still revise your essay before final submission. This form of essay writing is the basis for all other academic writing pursuits. This skill translates to almost all careers that require critical thinking, critical reading, and responding in writing. Practicing "how to" write an essay carries over into any field's task of "what" you need to write. This skill will help with all formal writing.
Write a 900-word essay, in MLA format, about a person or fictional character in whom you have an interest.
Select a subject (person or fictional character you admire)
Look to your Discussion (D1) and Writing Activity 2 (WA2) for your subject
The person may be current or historical
Some fictional characters have positive traits that can be identified.
Select several (2-4) traits about the person or character that you admire and write about these. These will be the essay's main ideas.
Biographical information should be used only to support claims.
Your essay should focus on the traits you admire. Do not write a biography or tell a story.
Example of what not to do: This person was born in 1979. They were born in middle Tennessee. They went to elementary school is 1985. They graduated in 1998.
Instead, follow this example: This person was born in middle Tennessee. Entering elementary in school in 1985 was hard for them. They never felt that they belonged in kindergarten. However, they persevered, learning that school was a place for them to grow and be themselves.
Focus on the "why" you admire them instead of a list of traits. In the above example, perseverance and learning to be themselves are the traits the writer of the essay admires.
Organize your main ideas to establish the essay's pattern of organization.
Your main ideas (traits you have chosen) need to be clearly organized.
Decide in what order you wish to discuss these main ideas (traits)
This organization needs to be presented in your introduction, preferably as the last sentence of your introduction in the thesis statement.
Note: your thesis is generally the last sentence in your introduction, but it not a requirement.
Follow this structure throughout the rest of the essay.
Always check to see if your main ideas/topic sentences, in each paragraph, relate back to your thesis statement.
Compose 5 well-developed paragraphs that support a clear thesis statement that is arguable.
5 paragraph minimum
introduces your essay and presents your thesis
three body paragraphs
Each paragraph contains one of your chosen admirable traits about your subject
expressed in a topic sentence in your paragraph
Each trait needs to transition to the next one in the next paragraph
look to your chosen pattern of development
rephrases your traits into one last paragraph
reflects the earlier thesis, but with the knowledge of your traits expressed throughout the essay
This essay is a basic form of an argument essay. The essay should make an argument such as that the person or character selected is worthy of admiration because of the traits selected.

3.Macroeconomic powerpoint presentation on Inflation vs deflation. Below is the Assignment description: This course has a Final Project which is
: This course has a Final Project which is in the form of a PowerPoint presentation (you may also use Google Slides). You can choose a topic from this semester or something you come up with yourself, but your presentation must be about economics and be original (i.e. not just material verbatim that you have pulled from your text/readings or off the internet). Of course, you can still insert charts, graphs, videos, graphics and excerpts from outside sources (as long as you cite those sources!) I want to see your commentary and analysis, in your own words. IMPORTANT: Copying the work of others and representing it as your own (ex. copy and paste off of the internet or your text, OR using someone else's work and just changing a few words) is Plagiarism, a serious academic offense. I have enabled the Turnitin plagiarism checker for this assignment, to help you identify potential areas of plagiarism. Papers that are substantially plagiarized will NOT be accepted for grading. Although the format is a Power Point, I want to emphasize that this is NOT like your typical Power Point, which is basically an outline for a live presentation. Your project must be substantially loaded with content. The first slide should be your Introduction slide, the next 10-15 slides should be informational slides, the second to last slide should be your conclusion (which summarizes your presentation) and the last slide should be the reference slide. Make sure you review the rubric below BEFORE you start your project, so that you are clear on how your project will be graded. NOTE: The due date is Wednesday, 12/16. A 20% late penalty will be assessed every day for assignments submitted past this date. PLEASE contact me if you have any questions about the requirements of this project, plagiarism, citations...or any other concerns!

5.Hello, I have a problem calculating probability for a certain thing that happened. I'll try and make it sound like
it sound like a math problem.
The problem :
What are the chances of a 4 sided die landing on 1 twice and on 2 twice out of 4 rolls. The solution I came up with originally was (2/4) x (2/4) x (2/4) x (2/4) . Which I realized was wrong as this allowed the die to land on 1 four times in a row. So then I came up with this soultion (which i still think is wrong) (2/4) x (2/4) x (1/4) x (1/4) . So the reasoning behind this is : The first roll obviously has a 50% chance to roll on either 1 or 2. Second roll is the same. BUT, lets say both of them land on 1, and now it HAS to land on 2 the remaining two times. So my problem is with the current solution that I have is what if the die lands on 1 on the first roll, then on two for the second one. then the third roll would still have a 2/4 AKA a 50% chance of landing on either one. I'm sure the last roll is 1/4 but I just dont know if the order matters on the rolls. This has been driving me crazy the last hour. Please help if you can thanks
8.I have written Argumentative Essay on Is love marriage better than arranged marriage? Can you proofread it and find any
ead it and find any grammar or other mistakes? Can you also tell please that if this essay fits the criteria for being an argumentative essay and if it is a good argumentative essay? It is a 350 word essay and I can't cross the limit more.
Every relationship has its own importance. Marriage is a relationship, based on love or compromise, in which male and female interact and spend their life together. According to research, love and arranged marriage go hand-in-hand. Both are on the average scale because marriage has simply become part of business; however in modern era, the ratio of love marriage is increasing. Love marriages are considered superior because of understanding that both persons have for each other before marrying.
In love marriage, couples have mutual understanding. Despite facing numerous problems such as convincing parents to accept their choices and warding off false accusations and comments; however, these challenges guide them to happy life. In arranged marriages, both partners are unknown to each other and start their lives according to their parents' guidance. These couples don't make their own choices, but accept their parent’s demands. This leads to apathy for needs and feelings of their partner, which leads to weak bond between them.
In love marriages, couples always demonstrate respect to their partner's family members. They make many compromises to not hurt their partners; however, they still are able to speak frankly and openly. In arranged marriages, partners tend to speak with hesitation and tend to consider their own needs before those of their partner or partner's family.
In married life, couples should know what their partner prefer. This can only happen if the couple knows each other well before marrying. In arranged marriages, partners feel hesitation to share their feelings, likes, and dislikes; however, in love marriage partners already have an understanding of their partner's needs and just need to respect them and create a bond with their partner's family members. They care for each other's feelings and respect their boundaries.
In conclusion, arranged marriages are guided by parents whereas love marriages allow a couple the freedom to assess the future complexities that may arise in their lives. Love marriages contain mutual understanding that allows couples to solve their issues practically rather than emotionally. In a successful relationship, considering other person's feelings is a priority, which is commonly found in love marriages.

10.Problem 4 (20 points). Consider the Newmarket 5K dataset. A dataset with certain rows deleted (where there was no Age
there was no Age and/or Sex entered) has been created. It is called Newmarket_Cleaned.csv.
Data file: Newmarket_Cleaned.csv
(Links to an external site.)
. Direct HTTP link: https://unh.box.com/shared/static/p8x4xlbean3rlslmfskfu74fe89yjui8.csv
Please use it for this problem. Consider the “Model 4” developed in class, which contained Age, Age^2, and Sex as independent variables. First re-create this model with the cleaned dataset (you will need to create the Age^2 column; you can verify your model summary against the one from class), and then proceed with this problem.
Make the necessary changes to the model to incorporate Year as a categorical explanatory variable (you may need to change how R interprets the variable, before running this model). Does the year of the race seem to be related to mean finishing time, after taking into account the other variables in Model 4? Use the 0.05 significance level. Explain your work/logic, and key output to support your answer.
Using the updated model, after accounting for age and sex, what is the expected difference in finishing times for runners from 2008 versus runners from 2004?
Using the updated model, after accounting for age and sex, what is the expected difference in finishing times for runners from 2014 versus 2011?
In the above, the directions are to treat Year as a categorical variable. Explain how the regression model would be different if it instead were treated as a numeric variable. What are the assumptions being made about the effect of Year in the two different approaches?
I am a father of two children, one in the IB DP now, and the other is in 9th grade.
oking for an online math and SAT/ACT tutor, possibly an IB Math tutor as well.
My children are native English speakers, but go to an international school. They are looking to attend an English speaking school for the university.
Can you please let me know the price range I am expected to pay per hour? Also, I haven’t had some of the best experiences in the past with someone claiming that they could help with SAT only to find out that they weren’t qualified. At this point, I will need a way to demonstrate your expertise as an SAT or ACT tutor. Also, for IB Math, if you are able to do both.
I look forward to hearing from you. Just to let you know, I have other friends looking for a similar tutor. Please make sure to send your CV, and a personal statement if you have one, so I can better understand your teaching/tutoring philosophy better.
Oh yes, where are you located for time zone differences?
13.In this assignment, you will analyze a problematic relationship you have had or one you have observed. (If you don't
d. (If you don't wish to share a real relationship, you may use one from a book, movie, or television program.) Try to create a pragmatic description of the communication interaction that took place. That is, describe it as if it were a game; perhaps a game that only one of you seems to know the rules.
Please specifically include the following:
1. Name the game
2. Provide a brief description of the problematic relationship.
3. List the ground rules for the game.
4. Identify the "plays" in the game - that is the repeated patterns of "moves" that the individuals act out.
5. Respond to two reflection questions: What insights does seeing this as a game give you? Now that you have identified the game, what suggestions can you make for improving the relationship?
