Give examples Assignment 2: write 3-4 pages Case Study 5.1: Boeing’s Virtual Fence (pp. 192 – 193) – page 172 The Virtual Fence project, cancelled in early 2011 by the Federal government, is a true story of a project that sounded better than it could ever be due to technical problems, unreasonable or overly-optimistic projections, and a general lack of understanding of the sheer size of the required effort. Boeing was given carte blanche to run the project, with governmental oversight notably absent from the decisions regarding vendor selection, technical requirements, and first phase development. In short, the Federal government signed a blank check to Boeing for initial development and then discovered that real costs were projected to be much higher. The project was cancelled when Boeing began failing technical capability tests on initial sections of the virtual fence. Questions: 1) What problems do you see emerging from a project such as SBInet where the government allows the contractor to determine scope, manage all contractor relations, and decide how to share project status information with oversight bodies? 2) Consider the following two arguments: “The failure of SBInet was due to poor scope management,” versus “SBInet failed because of poor oversight and project controls.” Take one side or the other in this argument, and justify your response.

Witch Hunt / French Indian War
A lot of attention recently has been given to the use of the term ‘witch-hunt’ in American politics. As you probably know, the term became common vernacular in America after the famous McCarthy trials of the 1950s, where Sen. Joseph McCarthy accused many government officials of being Communists. After hearing more detail about the Salem Witch Trials, why do you think this term resonates in the American political conscience?

Should sport impose a minimum eligibility requirement based on age (e.g., in women’s tennis, 14 yr. old’s can compete against 30 yr. old’s.)? What strategies would you suggest keeping kids involved in sport or otherwise physically active throughout their teenage years and early adulthood?

Write a thoroughly researched paper on a consequential transition essay in which you focus on a consequence/related consequences of a transition (other than transitioning to college) in your (or a well-researched person’s) life. You must conduct field (e.g., an interview, a survey, or poll) research relative to this consequential transition and which you will include in your essay.
Enterprise Data Management Concepts
Enterprises are accumulating substantial amounts of data that are necessary for their business operations. As the quantities of data increase and the systems and processes used to manage these data become more complex, enterprises need better management of the content. The term enterprise content management (ECM) is used to describe this management process. For this discussion, research the library and Internet for information about ECM, and respond to the following questions:
Why do you think ECM is important to an organization? What aspect of ECM is most influential to the health of an organization, and why? Select 1 area of ECM, and discuss the importance of this area to the effective management of content in an organization.

The Nature of Psychological Research
Intelligence tests were designed based on the belief that there are measurable differences in ability between individuals that can help to predict future performance. There has been a long-term debate on what the word intelligence really means and a more heated debate on how much of intelligence is a product of nature (genetics) and how much is contributed by nurture (environment). In this discussion, we will explore the arguments for each of those influences.
As you create your discussion post, consider the following:
What is intelligence? What evidence do we have that genetics play a role in intelligence? What evidence do we have that environment is also involved?
Complete the following: Over the last hundred years there has been a great deal of discussion and research that has tried to determine the relative influence of nature and of nurture on intelligence. The consensus today is that both make a strong contribution. Find one piece of evidence showing that nature (genetics) makes a contribution and one showing the influence of nurture (environment). Describe each of these pieces of evidence and explain why it supports the influence of either nature or nurture, as appropriate. What is the practical importance of understanding that intelligence is influenced by both factors?

Watch the following video and analyze it: https://wvvvv.youtube.com/watch?v=2m1YethxbQQ
When you watch the video, it is recommended you activate the subtitles, as it is easier to tell what the child is saying. After watching the video, write up answers to the following questions:
Identify which video you watched from the above list.
Using the “Spoken Language in the First 2 Years” milestone chart in the text (Chapter 3), identify where this child’s oral language skills are at based on milestones. Justify how you reached this conclusion by examples from the video.
Look at other language concepts in the chapter, such as babbling, holophrase, naming explosion, etc. that were demonstrated by the child in the video.
Select the concepts that applied to the child and explain how they were presented by this child.
Explain in your own words the three theories of language development described in Chapter 3. The theory titles are 1) infants need to be taught, 2) social interactions foster language, and 3) infants teach themselves.
Describe which of the three theories you see influencing this child’s language skills. Use something specific from the video to justify your answer.

Information Gathering and Processing
In developing the dissertation prospectus, the doctoral researcher must clearly define a theoretical foundation/conceptual framework and explain how the foundation/framework connects to the research questions surrounding the problem under investigation. In this assignment, you will explore factors that influence information gathering and processing and explain how these ideas could become the theoretical foundation/ conceptual framework of a dissertation prospectus. Consider, then, that much like using the scientific method in research, individuals have varied queuing mechanisms that influence how information is gathered, hypotheses are tested, and conclusions are drawn. Researchers such as Kahneman, Fredrickson, and Prochaska have greatly influenced the contemporary view of reasoning, problem-solving, decision making, and motivation.
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
• This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
• Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
• This assignment requires that at least two additional scholarly research sources related to this topic, and at least one in-text citation from each source be included.
• You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.
Write a paper (1,750-2,000 words) that discusses factors that influence information gathering and processing. Address the following in the paper:
1. Briefly describe the fast brain/slow brain concept presented by Kahneman.
2. Briefly describe the positivity ratio concept presented by Fredrickson.
3. Briefly describe the readiness concept presented by Prochaska.
4. Analyze how each of these concepts influences the process of creating hypotheses, testing hypotheses, and drawing conclusions. Which of these researchers’ concepts is the preferred model? Why?
5. Using the model you identified above as the preferred model, draft a sample theoretical foundation/conceptual framework for a dissertation prospectus that is based in that model. You may use your own topic/prospectus if the model is applicable.
