To discuss globalization and world issues such as colonialism and its effect on slave trade. Though colonialism may have officially ended, the effects of colonialism are still very much present today. This is true in modern-day Africa.
Review the following resources for additional information on the slave trade in Africahttp://www.history.com/news/ask-history/what-part-of-africa-did-most-slaves-come-from:
Select 1 of the following countries from which the most slaves originated:
- Democratic Republic of the Congo
- Ivory Coast
- For your selected country, identifyÂ the former colonial ruling country.
- Identify your selected country\’sÂ date of independence from the colonial ruling country, and discuss the length of time the slave trade operated there.
- Discuss how the depopulation and fractured familial relationships inherent in the slave tradeÂ have affected your chosen country. Be sure to support your discussion with relevant examples.
- Are these effects still felt today? If so, how? Provide examples.
- Based on your review of this information, what conclusions can you draw about the slave trade and its effects on your selected country?
- Based on your key findings and conclusions, what recommendations do you haveÂ to helpÂ improve the conditions in the country now? Make sure your recommendations:
- include specific interventions or strategies to address the issues and constraints identified
- are feasible (politically and operationally)
- are realistic (short- and long-term)
- Utilize at least 2 credible sources to support the arguments presented in the paper. Make sure you cite them appropriately within your paper, and list them in APA format on your Reference page.
- Your paper should be 4-5 pages in length, not counting the Title page and Reference page. In accordance with APA formatting requirements, your paper should include a Title and Reference page, should be double-spaced, and include a running head and page numbers.
How to write such a paper on Globalization and world issues
The effects of slave trade: The Democratic Republic of Congo
One of the countries that many slaves originated from is Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). DRC can be traced to the Kongo Kingdom that rose to prominence in the 13th century, covering vast lands from present-day Angola to the Katanga region. Diogo Cao, a Portuguese navigator, was the first European to visit the empire in 1482 (BBC, 2019). This led to establishment of trade between Kongo and the Portuguese, with the Kongo selling copper and ivory in exchange for textiles. The Kongo also started selling criminals and prisoners of war as slaves. However, there was a dramatic and uncontrollable rise in slave trade in the region as a result of increased Portuguese demand for slaves, prevalence of slave traders and merchants, and infighting among fiefdoms in the Kongo Kingdom. This led to King Afonso, a king of Kongo, to write a letter to the king of Portugal King in 1514 complaining about collusion by Portuguese merchants and Kongo noblemen to enslave Kongo citizens (Nunn, 2008). Further, in an effort to end the slave trade, King Afonso asked for removal of Portuguese merchants in 1526. These efforts were however unsuccessful, with slave trade continuing unabated into the 16th and 17th century. This culminated in the Jaga Invasion of 1568-1570 and eventual collapse of the Kongo Kingdom following a massive civil war in 1665-1709.
LITERATURE REVIEW TEMPLATE
NOTE: Please use the “Grammar Check” link in the left side bar in Interact to check the grammar of your final report before submitting it.
Important information to read before you start your Literature report:
A literature review describes and evaluates the research you have read about the specific topic that is of interest to you (very detailed). It also includes a critical analysis of the relationship among different works. All this, you need to also relate to your work.
Your Literature Review Assignment should be less than 2500 words and have the following sections:
Abstract: (altogether ~200 words)
Give a brief overview of the aims, methods and expected findings of your work, and your contribution in this project. Write each of these points as small paragraph.
1. Introduction: (altogether 300~400 words)
* Give a definition of the topic you are researching (a description, an argument or a proposal)
• Tell your reader what is of interest to you for your research and state the problem (the narrow field you have researched, i.e. automated feedback for tertiary students).)
• Tell your reader what it is NOT of interest to you for your research (i.e. you are NOT doing research on primary or secondary students)
• State the overall findings from your review (i.e. what do most sources conclude).
2. Literature Review: (1600 – 1800 words)
• Describe the field of research and show your reader how you will organise your research (in sections with headings)
• Write your 12 reviews, using the following guide:
1. Organise the 12 reviews in blocks (depending on what is important for you) – you may have noticed categories some research papers fall into.
? By technology
? By results
? (Pl do not discuss paper by paper)
2. Check all papers to see what you can describe together.
3. Describe the research (what they did; how they did it; what technology they used) + evaluate the contribution the work makes to the field (i.e. why is this work important; how does it differ from other work) + show the limitations of the research (what did the researchers identify as limitations)
+ show what you think are omissions, gaps or limitations (you know this topic now; you should able to identify if they have not done something: gaps and limitations are the justification for doing this research) + show how the research is valuable for your project (link it to your work). See 2nd page for the sample
4. Identify relationships among studies in the same group/block:
Note relationships among studies (i.e. this work achieved higher accuracy than other studies using the ROTTO algorithm because …). Identify important studies (landmark studies) that led to subsequent studies in the same area.
5. Keep your review focused on your topic: make sure that the articles you have found are relevant and directly related to your topic.
6. If you include tables, diagrams, flowcharts or formulas as part of your review, each of them should be given a figure/ table number and that number must be cited in the main text with a detailed explanation (below the figure).
• Add and explain the Component and Classification tables. Need to explain why you selected those columns and the importance of these tables.
Sample review group (see below for codes A – H)
Research using convolution Neural Networks (CNN)
[A] Convolutional neural networks (CNN) have been used to achieve a more fine-grained analysis in a range of research works. They are generally effective for smaller corpora (Hadad et al., 2016; Colton et al., 2015). However, processing a large corpus is still computationally expensive due to the high processing time. [B] To overcome this, Abasir et al. (2017) used CNN to train a Natural Language Processing (NLP) system creating a RoTT1 algorithm to reduce the training time of a large corpus by several seconds. [C] Lowering training time is important since it lowers computational cost [D] and even though the improvement was not of magnitude, no other group of researchers has been able to achieve this. It points to the fact that the RoTT1 algorithm has potential. [E] In addition to the size of the decrease, the researchers identified as limitation that the overall impact of this reduction is minimal as the data preparation time increased significantly, offsetting the time gains from training. [F] Despite these issues which require further research, the RoTT1 algorithm developed by the researchers is still of interest to the proposed work as it has proven to reduce processing time which is one of the aims of this research. [G] The RoTT1 algorithm has since also been used by other researchers. An algorithm based on similar principles and CNN were also the basis of an object detection system by Compten and Wells (2018). However, although this adaptation of RoTT1 is interesting, it is field-specific, and the concept may not be suitable for adaptation because the development of a new algorithm is not the focus of this work. It is, therefore, of no further interest. [H] However, of considerable value for our work is the research by Blander et al (2019) which focused on [A] compression of corpora by … Blander at a l (2019) used a multi-layer CNN with the aim adding layers that would sort and condense the corpus (next review in this same category, repeating all sections A, B, C, D, E, F)
Article adapted for educational purposes from Ho et al. (2018) with permission of the authors.
[A] State the special area this paper is based on [get additional references from general research or from the paper you have reviewed but not used].
[B] Introduce the work you want to discuss and what they did.
[C] Tell your reader why their work is important.
[D] Draw a comparison about this work with existing research.
[E] The limitations the researchers identified themselves.
[F] State why this work is of value to your own research
[G] How has research been used in the field?
[H] Create a link to the next valuable piece of research (i.e. one of the 12) in the same category.
• Frequently link the discussed research findings to the research question stated in the introduction. These links create a thread of coherence throughout your review article.
3. Conclusion (150-200 words)
Summarise the key findings from the literature review (positive); restate the limitations; based on these limitations, justify your research proposal (i.e. discuss the gap/niche you identified).
4. References (~ 75 articles)
Please note that you need to add all 30-35 references you have collected in your weekly submissions and the other additional 2 references you have given for each journal paper. That means you should have a reference list of 75. Please do the citation of all these papers in the main document (mindful of the comments on referencing above).
PLEASE note that you do not have to propose your OWN systems; just provide a diagram of the topic or any landmark solutions.
A mobile manufacturing company pays its employees as follows: 1) Team leaders (fixed fortnightly salary)
2) Sales workers ($500 plus 6.5% of their gross fortnightly sales)
3) Pieceworkers (fixed amount of money per item for each of the items they produce, each piece worker in this company works on only 1 type of item)
4) Hourly workers (fixed hourly wage for up to the first 60 hours they work and -timeand a-half- i.e. 1.5 times their hourly wage, for overtime hours worked)
Write a program to compute the weekly pay for each employee. You do not know the number of employees in advance.
Each type of employee has its own pay code:
Code 1: Team leaders
Code 2: Sales workers
Code 3: Pieceworkers
Code 4: Hourly workers
There will be an undetermined number of entries into the payroll. Use a switch to compute each employees pay based on that employees pay code. Within the switch, prompt the user (i.e. the payroll clerk) to enter the appropriate facts your program needs to calculate each employees pay based on that employees pay code. Print each pay value and when done with the entries, print total amount of payroll.
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 4
Enter hourly workers pay rate: 10 Enter the number of hours worked: 35 fortnightly pay is: 350.00
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 4
Enter hourly workers pay rate: 15.5 Enter the number of hours worked: 100 fortnightly pay is: 1860
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 4
Enter hourly workers pay rate: 10 Enter the number of hours worked: 40 fortnightly pay is: 400.00
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 1
fortnightly pay is: 576.90
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 2 Enter Sales employees gross weekly sales: 1091.45 fortnightly pay is: 570.94
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 3
Enter the number of pieces completed: 200 Enter the employees per piece pay rate: 0.5 fortnightly pay is: 100
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 8 You have entered an invalid code.
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 9 You have entered an invalid code.
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): 3
Enter the number of pieces completed: 100 Enter the employees per piece pay rate:
2.75 fortnightly pay is: 275.00
Enter employees number code (-1 to end): -1
The total payroll for the fortnight is:4132.84
Use the rand function to produce two positive one-digit integers (0 includes). The program should then prompt the user with a question, such as How much is 2 + 3?
1. Very good!
3. Nice work!
4. Keep up the good work!
and ask another addition question.
If the answer is wrong, randomly display any of the following messages.
1. No. Please try again.
2. Wrong. Try once more.
3. Dont give up!
4. No. Keep trying and let the user try the same question repeatedly until the user finallygets it right.
A separate function should be used to generate each new question. This function should be called once when the application begins execution and each time the user answers the question correctly.
(Hint: Use random-number generation to choose a number from 1 to 4 that will be used to select one of the four appropriate responses to each correct or incorrect answer. Use a switch statement to issue the responses.)
Write a complete C program to calculate area and circumference of a circle. Your program should have the following functions in addition to a main() function.
1. Menu that displays
Do you want to use radius or diameter for the calculation?
Enter 1 for radius
Enter 2 for diameter
Enter -1 to exit
2. diameter_to_radius receives diameter (double) as a parameter and returns radius (double).
3. random_value_generator generates random values (double) between minimum and maximum.
4. area receives radius (double) as a parameter and returns area (double).
5. circumference – receives radius (double) as a parameter and returns circumference (double).
You should start the program by prompting the user to select radius or diameter for the calculation (validate the choice).
You should ask the user to choose a unit, either cm or m (validate the choice), for the calculation. Generate a random double value (use random_value_generator) between 5. 0 (minimum) and 15.0 (maximum) for the radius. Prompt the user to choose either area or circumference calculation (prompt by using character A for area and C for circumference validate choice).
You should ask the user to choose a unit, either cm or m (validate the choice), for the calculation. Generate a random double value (use random_value_generator) between 15.0 and 30.0 for the diameter. Before calculating area or circumference convert diameter to radius (use diameter_to_radius function).
You should exit the program only when the user inputs -1.
All results are printed in main, show only two decimal numbers in the final result.
The formatting of the output should be similar (including the units) to the screen shot shown.
In this task double means double precision floating point value.

What we want to see:
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We recommend you work with your Academic Writing Guide to ensure that you reference correctly. You will find a link to this document on the main page of every unit, under the ‘Assessments’ section. Correct academic writing and referencing are essential tasks that you need to learn. We recommend a minimum of ten references.
Referencing: References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the Study Guide and lecture notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number/s if shown in the original.
Researching: You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Reputable news sites such as The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/au/health), online dictionaries and online encyclopedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic. Government departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local not for profit organisations such as the Cancer Council are also good resources.

The following questions will address the following key criteria of this assessment:
• Gather and analyse data relating to enterprise production and financial performance to identify historical and current performance
• Evaluate enterprise strengths and weaknesses against market conditions to determine current and future capacities
• Monitor impact of natural conditions on enterprise performance
• Monitored performance against enterprise objectives to identify variations and scope for future development
You must answer all the questions correctly in order to meet assessment requirements for this section.
Using the above on the page before using MS Excel or other software package. You are required to create a line graph, show the Farm Profit and Loss before taxes ($) for each year. You are required to comment to on business with regards to
i) Profitability and if it was a poor, average or good season for wheat production
ii) Create a 2nd line graph, comparing year to year, based on 453 Ha being as share farming, which represents, X Ha of the total managed area.
Identify the X (unknown), and what are the changes in profit margin to share farming, would the business remain viable if it were to forego share farming.
iii) Calculate and comment on the Return on Managed Capital (ROMC)
To demonstrate a partial budget, a ‘what if’ question is asked of the ‘Upndowns Farm’: ‘What would be the effect on farm profitability if the prime lamb enterprise was replaced by an expanded self- replacing merino enterprise.
The results, shown in Table 2.1 below, are based on the following assumptions:
• Self-replacing merino gross margin is $56/DSE.
• Prime lamb gross margin is $45/DSE.
• Total DSE in the current prime lamb flock is 1,720DSE.
• Asset value of the prime lamb enterprise $168,250 or $98/DSE.
• Asset value of the self-replacing merino enterprise is $806,250 or $112/DSE.
• Opportunity cost of capital is 10%.
• There is no change in the pasture program.
This analysis would indicate that the farm net profit should improve by how much? A partial budget example: Table 2.1
In this case, the 1,720 extra merino DSEs are worth $24,080. This is calculated by taking the asset value of the merinos of $112/DSE and subtracting the asset value of the prime lambs of $98/DSE, which gives
$14/DSE added capital. This $14/DSE is multiplied by the added 1,720DSE required, giving $24,080. An extra $24,080 is invested in sheep as a result of this change.
Calculate the return on extra capital based on this, and how would this fair again the return on extra capital.
An analysis of how has the audit procedures contributed to the collapse.
e. Comment on the auditor’s independence and professional and ethical behaviour within the case discussed.
f. Amendments that have taken place in the auditing standards and principles since then.
