International versus U.S. Accounting Standards

For this assignment, you will research and compare international and U.S. accounting standards. This will enable you to see how the different reporting methods affect business and how product costs are affected by international business.The learning objectives of this report are as follows:

  1. Compare and contrast basic U.S. and international financial accounting standards.
  2. Explain how key international factors affect business reporting.
  3. Identify key compliance and regulatory requirements.

Using the  Unit IV Research Report Template , prepare a four- to five-page written report with at least three scholarly sources covering the items listed below.

Introduction

Part 1: Select financial statements for two related (e.g., computer manufactures, pharmaceutical companies, cell phone companies, etc.) businesses; one that uses U.S. accounting reporting and the other that uses international accounting reporting. Identify the following items:

  • Provide the name, location, and accounting standards used for each business.
  • Compare and contrast three major differences you see in the way the financial data is presented on the financial statements.
  • Identify which set of financial statements you think is the easiest to understand and provides you with most accurate cost data as a manager. (Do not forget to look at the notes to the financial statements also.)

Part 2: Analyze and discuss three international factors you think would affect the cost of the products made at the companies you selected and why.
Part 3: Discuss any compliance and/or regulatory issues you think would be involved in the companies you have selected as they relate to the cost of the products made. For example, are there strict regulations on product pricing, tariffs imposed on raw materials needed to make the products, or strict regulations on the wages paid to workers?

Conclusion and Recommendations

Be sure to use APA formatting throughout and reach out to the Writing Center or the Library for assistance with research, writing, and formatting. Include at least two of your scholarly resources from the CSU Online Library in your report.

Discussion forum 5.2: working thesis statements

The purpose of this forum is to help you develop a strong working thesis on which to base your research for this week’s Response Paper 3, which then helps you get a jump start on research for your Research Paper due in week 7. After carefully reviewing directions for Response Paper 3, and the “Analyzing Literature and Evaluating Sources” files in week 5’s online learning resources, it’s time to begin discussion. 

1. First, review the list of texts that you can choose from for this upcoming annotated bibliography assignment (remember, the ENG 102 reading list is visible in the course Syllabus, in the Course Schedule section, and the Research Paper Guidelines are in Course Resources above week 1). You can write on 1-2 works, and no more than 3, for the research paper. 

2. In your main post, begin by writing the sentences below and filling in the blanks:

  • The text(s) that we have read in this class that I will use for my paper is/are: _______________ (you can include up to three)
  • I will use the __________critical reading strategy to help me analyze the text. 
  • The claim I want to make about that work(s) is: _____________.

3. THEN, combine all of that information into a SINGLE sentence, which will also be posted in your main post.  This will be the working thesis for your Research Paper. It may look something like this:

Using the psychological strategy to analyze “Soldier’s Home” by Ernest Hemingway demonstrates that his purpose in writing the text was to help other soldiers learn to cope with the effects of their time spent at war. 

Here’s another example where the strategy is not directly mentioned in the thesis–this is the more refined and advanced option: 

In The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald uses the character of Jay Gatsby to show that obsession with material wealth and social elevation can ultimately lead to personal destruction. 

So, for this Gatsby thesis, the writer might use a Marxist lens to assist in analysis, since the focus is on money/class.

Note: for the incorporation of the critical reading strategy, try to think of it in terms of how you are using it, not how the author is using it (since most don’t, at least not on purpose).

***You may not use the sample Hemingway thesis/argument above for your paper. Meaning, do not submit a version of that argument/thesis.  

Come up with your own unique argument for analysis!

In your further discussions, provide the following responses to classmates’ posts:  

  • Comment on your classmates’ ideas- can you think of any suggestions to write their thesis in a way that makes it more focused, debatable, or appropriate for analysis?
  • Is there another reading from class that the student could add that you think might improve upon their original idea? Why or why not? 
  • Is there a different critical strategy that the student could use that would perhaps better address their idea? If so, what is it and why?  
  • Find and post a link for online resources that can provide classmates with help with crafting thesis statements.
  • If necessary, reply with a new working thesis statement if your original idea needed improvement. 

Finally, please be sure to check for my feedback in this forum, specifically to see if I ask you to revise your thesis statement. You would want to do this before moving forward with your Annotated Bib. 

 —–

I  want to take some to clarify some information about the items related to proposing your topic. Keep in mind that for this thread, you are not writing the whole paper now–you are only presenting the argument you will later base the paper on. 

So, let’s take a look at what to include:  First, you need to decide on the author/work you will analyze.  Per directions, choose at least one work we’ve read in class so far, or that we will read. This does NOT mean any story or work from the textbook–it means any text that we are specifically reading/have read/will read. Check the course schedule to see the full breakdown of our readings.  Review the different selections we’ve read/will read/are reading, and then, make your selection. Keep in mind that if you are only going to work with one text, you need to choose a work that we are actively engaging in and with.  That said, you can work with up to three texts by an author, if you choose (though I don’t encourage this option). If you go this route, you would still need to include at least one of the author’s texts that we’ve read in class. Also, if you choose this route, you need to be careful to avoid giving an author biography, or general summary of the works, as neither of those meet the requirement of the upcoming essay.  After you choose your author and the work you will focus on, you need to come up with an argument about the piece.  Your research paper should be an analytical (analysis) essay that makes a specific, unique claim about one of the course readings. The claim should be made by applying specific schools of literary criticism from the “Critical Strategies for Reading” section of our textbook. So, that means that the argument will be based on the use of one of those critical reading strategies.  Since this essay is literary analysis with research included, the argument itself needs to be about the work in question, not just about the topic you’re focusing on (war, love, etc.) or the author of the work (background on Faulkner, for instance). It must be about the piece/story itself, as analyzed with the specific strategy. When doing that sort of analysis, we should always aim to include specific components of the work, such as plot, character, or theme, which can help us prove our argument as grounded in the text.  Another thing to keep in mind is that the argument/thesis must be debatable–it cannot state something known or obvious, and it shouldn’t be vague:  “‘Soldier’s Home’ is a story about a young man named Krebs who comes home from War and is depressed” would not be an effective thesis. It only describes something that is known; it doesn’t present an argument about the text that someone might disagree with.  As a general note about thesis statements, we should recall from past classes that they are usually one sentence (sometimes two) in length–they are not paragraphs long.

A-1 car rental with regression

 

Instructions:

A-1 Car Rental is one of the two car rental agencies serving a small regional airport in the U.S. Midwest. Forty per cent (40%) of its customers are airline passengers and the remaining sixty per cent (60%) are dwellers of the small nearby college town who use rental cars for business and leisure trips. The airport is within two miles from campus and approximately six miles from the city center. It is easy to reach by car, taxi, or city bus.

You are a manager of A-1 Car Rental. Your fleet consists of 72 cars, of which 47 fall into the “economy” class and 25 in the “luxury” class. Whenever demand for cars in some class exceeds the number of cars available, additional vehicles can be delivered from the nearest company hub in the state capital 70 miles away. Alternatively, some customers unable to rent an economy-class car may be upgraded to a luxury-class car at no extra cost to them.

Your only competitor at this location has a more sophisticated system of car category tiers, which consist of Compact, Economy, Mid-size, and Large cars.

Assignment:

In order to better understand your unit’s operating environment, you are asked to provide an estimate of the demand equation that would account for various factors that affect your customer traffic. Estimating the demand equation is useful for future analysis of your unit’s performance.

Review the data file that your staff has put together for this analysis and identify which variables you would like to include in your demand function. For each variable you choose to include, provide reasons why you expect it to be important for your analysis. Also explain the expected sign of the relationship between the proposed independent variable and the dependent variable.

Estimate the demand function for A-1 Car Rental using regression techniques. Make sure you include an interpretation of all coefficients of your estimated demand function.

Submit a report (Word document) and your analysis (Excel file) for grading.

Labor unions | Human Resource Management homework help

  1. In U.S. politics the Democratic party has generally been more supportive of labor unions than the Republican party. Explain why it makes sense that the Wagner Act was sponsored by a Democrat, the Taft-Hartley Act by two Republicans, and the Landrum-Griffin Act by one of each.
  2. In both the private and public sectors, a sharp increase in union membership coincides with the passage of protective legislation. A longstanding debate is whether increased demand for unionization causes new legislation or vice versa. Explain how causality can work in both directions. In which direction is labor law more important? Which direction do you think is more realistic?
  3. Employees might respond to workplace injustice in one of five ways: quitting, individual voice (such as complaining), collective voice (including forming a union), resistance (including work withdrawal such as absenteeism, reduced work effort, and work avoidance, or perhaps even sabotage), and silence. How might union strategies, managerial strategies, and the external environment shape which response an individual worker chooses? What else might affect whether workplace injustice causes an individual to support a labor union over the other options for dealing with injustice?
  4. Describe the pros and cons of union mergers for (a) two unions that represent workers in the same industry, and (b) two unions that represent workers in different industries. Should U.S. law encourage, discourage, or remain neutral on union mergers?

Four questions with credible references.  Minimum of 4 pages.

Post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, is something a person experiences such as fear and anxiety, for a long time after the traumatic event. This typically comes after someone experiences tragic event while in the military, a car or vehicle accident, sexual assault, illnesses or disasters. Some of the symptoms taking place are worry, anger, depression, flashbacks to the traumatic event, detaching from others and intrusive thoughts. (Comer & Comer, 2021). These symptoms last for at least month if not years after the event. Treatment for those experiencing PTSD are the use of antidepressants, cognitive-behavioral therapy and group therapy. All of which help the individual to work through the experience and to build upon ways to counteract their thoughts.

Disassociate identity disorder, DID, is where an individual has two or more distinct personalities. Typically this disorder can be seen through the transition stage or switching, which can be sudden or dramatic. (Comer & Comer, 2021). Those who are experiencing DID, have had traumatic events in their life such as sexual assault or a disaster, which cause them to create other personalities to help cope with it. These personalities typically do not know the others memories, thoughts, feelings or behaviors. The most common way to treat someone with DID, is to help them recognize their disorder, recover memories, and integrate the subpersonalities. (Comer & Comer, 2021). Like PTSD, DID is also treated through drug therapy, group therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
