Select two countries to research where your organization performs business manufacturing of your product.  

Research your selected countries and document each country’s cultural and ethnic composition as well as the populations’ ethnic makeup, include percentages (for example: Malaysia Ethnic groups: Malaysian 50.2%, Chinese 24.5%, Indigenous 11.0%, Indian 7.2%, Non-Malaysian citizens 5.9 %, Others 1.2%).  

Examine the cultural and ethnic differences of your two selected countries. Determine the appropriate negotiation tactic that would be most effective in reaching your objective. How would you conduct the negotiation in order to be successful?  

Prepare a 1,050-word paper in which you consider how you would prepare for negotiations based on the scenario. Identify negotiation tactics that would be effective in reaching your objective. Identify negotiation tactics that would be ineffective when dealing with the selected country, and explain why those tactics would be ineffective. Discuss how you would negotiate price for each country. •For further assistance, refer to: 

 •You can also refer to page 312-316 and 408-415 of your text to review negotiation techniques and strategies

  Create a PowerPoint® presentation of 5 to 7 slides with speaker’s notes that explains how to negotiate across cultures based on the scenario.    

  Format your paper and presentation according to APA standards.

Case study 

Please choose from ONE of the following:

Prepare a case analysis for Case 11 and answer question 1 & 3 at the end of case 11 (include as an appendix to the case).


Prepare a case analysis for Case 13 and answer question 1 & 2  at the end of case 13 (include as an appendix to the case).

A case analysis must be written in APA format and include the proper cover and reference list.  The Case Analysis should be 500-700 words. Please use double spacing (as required by APA) and an APA approved font (12 point).  The Case Analysis must include at least three references.  Reference support should be included in the evaluation of possible solutions as well as the recommendations and/or implementation sections.  The Case Analysis MUST include the following heading and follow this prescribed format:

Title Page (APA formatted)

            I. Major Facts (Heading)

(State here the major facts as you see them. Make statements clear and concise for your own understanding as well as for the understanding of the other students and the instructor.)

            II. Major Problem (Heading)

(State here the major problem as you see it. Emphasize the present major problem. You may wish to phrase your statement in the form of a question. In a few cases, there may be more than one major problem. A good problem statement will be concise, usually only one sentence.)

            III. Possible Solutions (Heading)

A. (List here the possible solutions to the major problem. Let your imagination come up with alternative ways to solve the problem.

B. Do not limit yourself to only one or two possible solutions. These solutions should be distinct from each other. You must include a minimum of three possible solutions.

C. However, you may wish to include portions of one solution in another solution, as long as each solution stands alone. Only in this manner will your subsequent choice be definitive.

D. Note advantages and disadvantages of each possible solution as well expected outcomes. This is an areas where outside support will help.

            IV. Choice and Rationale (Heading)

(State here your choice, A or B or ___ and the detailed reasons for your choice. You may also state your reasons for not choosing the other alternative solutions.) Explain the hopeful outcome of this alternative.

            V. Implementation (Heading)

Assignment 2: Discussion—Brain Scans and Application of Research to Brain Injury
The past twenty years have seen advancements in technology that were critical to further understanding concepts in cognitive psychology. Two such developments are positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These scans allow researchers to “see” the brain in action.
Research how brain scans can diagnose injury and disease using the Internet and the Argosy University online library resources. Based on your research, answer the following questions:

How do PET and MRI work?
If you were showing a person words while having an MRI, what brain areas would probably be active?
If a brain injury victim is unable to move the right arm, in which area of the brain would an MRI scan most likely reveal damage?
What kind of scan do you think would be best in diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease?
How do the research tools (equipment and methodology) available today contribute to a greater understanding of “conscious processes and immediate experience” than was possible using trained introspection and structuralism?

PETs and MRIs also can diagnose head injuries. Consider the following scenario:
You are working at a Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital and meet with Allison. Allison is in the US Army and has just returned home from a deployment. During her deployment, a bomb was thrown into a vehicle in which she was riding. She was not severely injured but was told that she sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Respond to the following:

Define TBI for Allison.
Describe any symptoms that Allison might experience.
How do you think the army should deal with these injuries? For example, if Allison is not obviously physically impaired, should she be discharged and receive disability pay? Should she be redeployed? If Allison stays in the army, what kinds of jobs do you think she should not perform?   

Write your initial response in 4–5 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
By the due date assigned, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through the end of the module, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.

Dr. Durand discusses the nature of autism, its characteristics, and symptoms. There is live footage of a public school in New York where the teachers and children with autism are in a mainstreamed setting with other students. Aside from the real footage, this segment highlights the ongoing controversy regarding whether such children should be mainstreamed into regular classes or placed in special education classes. 

What do you think about mainstreaming in our schools?

What might be the liabilities of mainstreaming autistic students into a regular classroom environment?
