“Persuasive Ethics: Learning to Think of the Land and Live Ethically With It.”

This assignment theme will give your essay unity : How does one apply ecological ethical ideas? This theme should be interpreted in terms of the assignment title about persuasion. Your essay should have three parts:
A: In roughly 1400 words, explain why Leopold does not propose an ethical theory but rather a worldview. Define five virtues articulated in Leopold’s moral
worldview with reference to specific texts (and supplemented by other course texts). How might these virtues be persuasively communicated today?
B: In about 1000 words, answer these two questions: What is it about Wahkohtowin that makes its ethical worldview morally appealing? What makes Wahkohtowin unlikely to be a motivating ethical worldview today? As part of your answers, use the language of virtues to help you communicate your
argument. Be practical in your answer. Make reference to the moral sense of nature.
C: Conclude this assignment with an appendix of 300 words, where you rewrite your ethical stance toward the natural world. How do you justify this stance?

Sample Solution

“Ethics, Environment, and Social Reform.”

You will compare the “Earth Charter” (EC) with the “Blue River Quorum Declaration” (BRQD) in your essay. As has been the norm in the course, linking previous readings and discussions from Units One and Unit Two, along with the readings of Unit Three is expected as part of your interpretive work. Your paper will explain if you think one of the two declarations (EC and BRQD) is more effective, or if both are necessary, for the application of an ecological ethic?
Explain why. In your discussion account for these four concerns:
What are the different contexts that are assumed for each document: that there are different contexts from which to see and enact ethical positions means
what for personal preferences as a point of contention in ethical discussions?
What types of ethical discourse and behaviour are used to persuade the reader? Do they tap into the moral sense of nature?
What are the strengths and benefits of each document?
Should ethics be social or merely personal/private? What do these documents teach us about this question?

“Ecological Ethics and Economics: Clash of Worldviews”

Describe briefly (no more than a paragraph) an economic issue related to the environment from the Canadian news media and then explain how the critique
of the economic topic in terms of a biocentric and an ecocentric ethical view sheds new or different light onto the issue. You should present the biocentric
and ecocentric critiques in separate sections of the paper, so that their differences in analysis are easy to identify (this will be the hardest part of the essay
for many, but do not be dismayed. If in doubt, I am here to offer help).
Your analysis should show how the theories challenge people to rediscover the moral sense of nature. In other words, do not treat this as only hypothetical
and impossible to accomplish, but rather as possible and persuasive—i.e., as a practical activity. In your essay, you must make extensive use of the course
readings from Unit One and Unit Two.

To measure the financial performance of any company

To measure the financial performance of any company, it is important to analyze its four key financial statements: balance sheets, income statements, cash
flow statements, and shareholders’ equity statements. In this assignment, you will:
Visually present the balance sheet to depict what each company owns and what it owes over the past three years.
Visually present the income statement to depict how much money a company made and spent over the past three years.
The visual presentation and analysis will help you understand and compare the performance of both the companies to be acquired and eventually will help
you build your recommendation for the acquisition.
Prompt
Use the provided data sets of Company A and Company B to create data visualizations of their financial performance in Power BI. Then, based on the
visualizations, write an executive summary interpreting the financial performance of Company A and Company B. Include screenshots from your data
visualizations as needed in your summary. Follow the directions in the Power BI Executive Summary Assignment User Manual.
To complete this assignment, you will use Power BI software that is located within the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
Specifically, you must address the following criteria:
Assets, Liability, and Equity: Summarize how the assets, liabilities, and owner’s equity have changed over three years for Company A and Company B. Include
screenshots of your data visualization as follows:
Company A: In Power BI, use the provided Company A Financials and construct a set of three clustered column charts, representing:
The assets of Company A as represented in the data during each of the three years
The liabilities and owners’ equity over the same three years
Company B: In Power BI, use the provided Company B Financials and construct a set of three clustered column charts, representing:
The assets of Company B as represented in the data during each of the three years
The liabilities and owners’ equity over the same three years
Revenue and Earnings: Use the provided income statements to summarize the gross revenue and net earnings for Company A and Company B over three
years. Include screenshots of your data visualization as follows:
Company A: In Power BI, use the provided Company A Financials document and construct a line chart illustrating the visual relationship of revenue, gross
profit, total expenses, earnings before tax, net earnings, and taxes.
Company B: In Power BI, use the provided Company B Financials document and construct a line chart illustrating the visual relationship of revenue, gross
profit, total expenses, earnings before tax, net earnings, and taxes.
