Research is the essence of scholarly discourse. The graduate student should, at a minimum, be given to critical thought in a way that exposes gaps in the literature and offers new insight to more improved methodologies and policymaking. The Socratic method is the workhorse of the young scholar. Succeeding in failing to disprove a hypothesis is the hallmark of achievement in this regard. For this course of study, the student should identify critically apparent flaws in current cybercrime policymaking and offer improved pathways to digital intelligence, enforcement, crime reduction and prevention.
To do that, the student must have a foundation upon which to build this hypothesis. We begin this process with the Research Paper: Topic Identification and Bibliography Assignment.
The exact requirements for the Research Paper: Topic Identification and Bibliography Assignment are outlined as follows:
Length of assignment (see Research Paper: Topic Identification and Bibliography Assignment Template)
Include any information that is excluded from this length (e.g., title page, abstract, reference section, etc.)
Format of assignment: APA
Number of citations: 6
Acceptable sources (e.g., peer reviewed or scholarly journal articles published within the last five years)
Write a 5–6 page paper in which you:
Analyze the agency’s (or department’s) budget by following these steps and including the results of the analysis in your paper by: a) identifying the agency’s budget as executive department or an independent agency; b) determining which of the appropriation subcommittees has jurisdiction over each agency’s budget request; c) determining where each agency’s operations fall in the functional classification of the federal budget; d) determining the budget authority and outlays proposed for the agency; and e) determining the actual outlays and budget authority for the agency in that year. Title this section Budget Overview.
Analyze two major political influences on, and primary accountability areas required of, program administrators after reviewing FY2012 regarding mandatory and discretionary budgets. Title this section Budgeting Assessment.
Explain which intergovernmental agencies contribute to and/or influence the budgetary decisions for the current and future budget over the next five years. Title this section Analysis of Budgeting Plans and Actual Expenditures.
Analyze the impact of international policy making on the current year’s budgets and its possible impact on future budget line items. Title this section Implications of Foreign Policy.
Recommend two robust ways in which the agency could improve the budget for the next fiscal year. Title this section Budget Request and Recommendations.
Note-You will talk about The Agency is the National Archives and Records Administration
Annotating keywords can help us understand the literary elements of a short story, such as plot, character, setting, diction, or theme. You were introduced to these literary terms in Week 1.
For this homework assignment, you will reread and annotate the story you chose for Week 2, Discussion 1. You will locate keywords that signal the literary elements of the short story. You should read closely and carefully, noting words or synonyms that repeatedly draw your attention to the literary elements of theme, plot, character, and setting. In a printed book, you may underline or highlight them. You may also write notes to yourself in the margins. In a PDF, you may be using the markup tools or comment features.
There is no exact, “right way” of annotating a particular story; like the writing process, the close reading process is yours to individualize. If you prefer to print out the story on paper, annotate it by hand, and then upload a picture or scan of the paper, that submission would be perfectly fine as well.
1. Identify three of the following literary elements in the story, and explain how you recognize them:
2. Choose just one of the literary elements that you discussed in Question 1 and list 10 keywords in the story that relate to that element. Up to you but a good fallback would be the character element.
3. Annotate at least one section of the story that elucidates the literary element.
Review the final Social Media Marketing Plan assignment that is due in Week 5. Your individual assignments each week will incorporate into this plan.
Write a 825 – to 1,050 word paper that describes the social media presence of an organization of your choice. (Note: It is suggested that you choose one organization or a competitor of an organization, which will be used as the focus for remaining assignments in this course.)
Include the following:
Identify several social media sites where the organization has a presence, including specific URLs.
State the number of followers or other relevant data related to each social media platform for which the data is available.
Analyze the probable marketing goals of the organization based upon their social media presence.
Evaluate the effectiveness of this program.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
***WEEK 5 ASSIGNMENT****

The Court assumes that effective assistance of counsel is present unless the adversarial process is so undermined by counsel’s conduct that the trial cannot be relied upon to have produced a just result. An accused who claims ineffective counsel must show the following: (1) deficient performance by counsel and (2) a reasonable probability that a competent attorney would have led to a different outcome (Strickland v. Washington, 466 U.S. 668 ).
Discuss the difficulty of successfully demonstrating point number two. Please articulate WHY in your answers.
Assignment: Write a 750-1000 word literary analysis essay of one text from an author studied in the first half of the term. This should be your own reading and is not a research essay so only consult the most basic of background sources. Do not recast an analysis you find in another source. Be sure to include a copy of the piece you are analyzing.
• William Blake
• Robert Burns
• William Wordsworth
• Samuel Taylor Coleridge
• John Keats
• Percy Shelley
• Lord Byron
• Alfred Tennyson
• Robert Browning
Explanation: One of the skills that often gets ignored in writing longer literary research papers is the ability to read a text and draw meaning from that reading. For this reason, this essay will allow you to engage deeply with a particular text. A literary analysis of a text explains in detail how the text communicates to the reader. Such a reading will require you to understand all aspects of the text and to have a grasp of the meaning of individual parts of the text in relation to the entire work. You are not, however, striving to be exhaustive in your “explanation” of the text, but rather you should strive to be selective in considering only those details that are significant to your own thematic understanding of the text.
Details: A literary analysis shows how certain aspects of the text contribute to a unified meaning. Each part of your essay, then, must relate to a clear, central idea. You are not, however, writing a paraphrase—do not just put the text in your own words. Instead, you are trying to get a sense of an overall meaning, the way the text communicates.
This essay should be easy to organize; working through the text from beginning to end makes the most sense (although in some cases, another organizational pattern works better). You should begin with an introduction indicating the main idea of the work—your take on the poem’s meaning. The rest of the paper will be a point by point analysis of how you arrived at that particular reading. Remember to mention lines, images, word choices, and other devices as support for your points. Show how all the writer’s tools come together to create the meaning you see in the text.
Prompt Questions and Ideas:
• What literary devices does the author use to create meaning: figures of speech, symbolism, allusion, sensory description, etc.?
• What issues or themes seem the most important, and what details support them?
• Is there a particular character, symbol or element in the poem worth analyzing in detail?
• What does the poem sound like? What effect does that sound have?
• What is the structure, meter and rhyme scheme of the poem? Why is it significant?
When you cite details from the poem, be sure to follow MLA conventions as your grade will be affected if you do not.

• Paste the citation and Abstract from the paper on the appropriate E-Portfolio page (page 1 of paper)
• Write a 2 page reflection on the paper in your own words (do not quote, repeat data/statistics, or copy text from the paper)
• Primary prompt response: What is the main topic of this paper, and how does it relate to the population you hope to work with that you described in your first paper?
• What was something you learned from this paper that you weren’t aware of before?
• What is something you think the authors should have explored but did not (what was missing)?
• Grammar, spelling and formatting do count, and up to 10 points may be deducted if these aspects of your essay are poor

Requirements: Please see attached court report. This news is based on this court report. The writer needs to organise the report and write it to a news story. I will have a couple of interview quotes ready tomorrow to add in the news. Please be reminded, THIS IS NOT AN ESSAY. IT IS A NEWS STORY.
You are required as part of the assignment to produce a news feature of 1,000 words based on a topical issue presented as a piece of journalism relating to the JNL6015 syllabus, which will account for 30% of the module marks.
What is a news feature?
A news feature is generally longer than an average news story and allows you to explore a topic more fully, and include more context and examples. We do not want a rant or a piece of polemic. Rather you should aim for an accurate, fair and comprehensive exploration of a topic that would help the general reader understand it more thoroughly.
What topics can you write about?
The JNL6015 syllabus covers a very wide range of topics giving you a huge choice of subject matter; local, national and international. You should aim for originality in terms of the subject matter or the approach you take, or both. You can take the germ of an idea from another publication, but you should ‘make the story your own’ by doing original research and interviews or attending events.
What we do not want is a lazy regurgitation of a story from the Sheffield Star or the BBC. Re-writing someone else’s work is not journalism – you have to add value to the story for the reader by including fresh facts or perspectives. Topics can cover everything from devolution, the monarchy, national and local elections, the electoral system, the Parliamentary system, the NHS, academy schools, local government finance, local government structure, austerity, public service cuts, planning, child protection and adult social services to name a few.
This is a piece of journalism, not an academic essay. This means you don’t need to use the Harvard referencing system, but you should still be very careful and transparent with your use of sources. If you quote a fact or statistic you should say where it came from (and ideally provide a link to the original source).
You should endeavour wherever possible to obtain your own quotes and we expect to see at least two original quotes from two separate sources garnered by yourself in your news feature. If you have to re-use quotes from other publications, you should state clearly where the quote was first used and when. If you ‘lift’ quotes from another publication without proper attribution you will be penalised.
On Blackboard you will find three examples of news features produced by students in previous years. These are from a few years ago, but they should give you an indication of what we are looking for. There is a good one, a fair one and a poor one, and they are annotated to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the articles. If you read and study these it should give you a good idea of what you need to aim for to get a good mark.
