Basic Communication Theory Discussion
Explain what is meant by the principle: "communication is inevitable, irreversible and unrepeatable." Give an example to illustrate your answer.
Review the different provisions of the PPACA, keeping in mind that different provisions are enforced on different timelines. Based on your analysis, describe at least one important impact you think the PPACA has had or will have on U.S. public health, especially regarding health care spending and public health outcomes. As part of your discussion, describe how American health care spending and outcomes compare to other countries.
Although some essential health care services in the United States are administered through governmental agencies, such as Medicare and Medicaid, much of the U.S. health care system is privatized. Most industrialized nations employ other systems, often falling into one of three different categories:
Even after passing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in 2010, the health care system in the United States remains markedly different from the systems described above. However, the legislation aims to address one of the fundamental philosophies historically missing from U.S. health care policy: access to health insurance and health services at all levels of income.
In this Discussion, you analyze different provisions of the PPACA to predict the possible impact they may have on public health spending and public health outcomes. You base part of your analysis on the three national health care systems described in the preceding bullet points and the media listed in the Learning Resources. As you think about the potential impact on public health spending, you may want to consider the impacts on pharmaceutical and dental health care spending as well—two categories that are sometimes overlooked when health care expenses are discussed.
An organization’s success is directly related to its ability to identify and develop leaders. One of the biggest failings of any organization is the failure to develop both current and future leaders. As you continue building your development plan for your organization, your focus this week will be on the leadership development that needs to occur in your organization.
This week, you will design a basic training and development intervention for leadership development that includes at least two different intervention methods. An intervention is a specific action or series of actions taken to address a specific problem that you have identified.
Review the information you have gathered and the analysis you have conducted. If necessary, do some more data gathering related to leadership development and a leadership succession pipeline.
Prepare a one page word on leadership development and succession interventions memo that addresses the following issues.
Address the following questions in your workbook - Mycoff (2016) Working with Political Science Research Methods: Problems and Exercises. Type your answers in a word document and submit the file through the link provided above. You do not have to retype the questions in your responses. However, make sure to clearly indicate the corresponding exercise numbers for easy identification.
Additional question: Briefly summarize the criticisms leveled against empirical research by those within the non-empirical research paradigms (Interpretation, Social Construction, and Critical Theory).
Exercise 3:1 (for MPA and non-MA students, expand your sources to websites that allow you to develop questions related to public administration issues, public policy, nonprofits, etc.)
ITS836 Assignment 1: Data Analysis in R
1) Read the income dataset, “zipIncomeAssignment.csv”, into R. (You can find the csv file in iLearn under the Content -> Week 2 folder.)
2) Change the column names of your data frame so that zcta becomes zipCode and meanhouseholdincome becomes income.
3) Analyze the summary of your data. What are the mean and median average incomes?
4) Plot a scatter plot of the data. Although this graph is not too informative, do you see any outlier values? If so, what are they?
5) In order to omit outliers, create a subset of the data so that:
$7,000 < income < $200,000 (or in R syntax , income > 7000 & income < 200000)
6) What’s your new mean?
7) Create a simple box plot of your data. Be sure to add a title and label the axes.
HINT: Take a look at: https://www.tutorialspoint.com/r/r_boxplots.htm (specifically, Creating the Boxplot.) Instead of “mpg ~ cyl”, you want to use “income ~ zipCode”.
In the box plot you created, notice that all of the income data is pushed towards the bottom of the graph because most average incomes tend to be low. Create a new box plot where the y-axis uses a log scale. Be sure to add a title and label the axes. For the next 2 questions, use the ggplot library in R, which enables you to create graphs with several different types of plots layered over each other.
8) Make a ggplot that consists of just a scatter plot using the function geom_point() with position = “jitter” so that the data points are grouped by zip code. Be sure to use ggplot’s function for taking the log10 of the y-axis data. (Hint: for geom_point, have alpha=0.2).
9) Create a new ggplot by adding a box plot layer to your previous graph. To do this, add the ggplot function geom_boxplot(). Also, add color to the scatter plot so that data points between different zip codes are different colors. Be sure to label the axes and add a title to the graph. (Hint: for geom_boxplot, have alpha=0.1 and outlier.size=0).
10) What can you conclude from this data analysis/visualization?

I am aware that all students have a Grammarly account. I, therefore, request you all to use Grammarly to check your paper before you upload to iLearn, failing to do so will cause you to lose some points. The essence of doing this is to ensure that your paper is free from grammatical errors, conjugation, and spellings.
Remember your initial post on the main topic should be posted by Wednesday at 11:59 PM (EST). Your 2 following posts should be commenting on your classmates’ post on different days by Sunday 11:59 PM (EST). You should end the week with 3 total discussion posts.
A quality post is more than stating, “I agree with you.” Maybe you should state why you agree with your classmate’s post. Additionally, post some examples or find a related topic on the Internet or University’s library and comment on it in the discussion post.

To this point in the final project, you have assisted your coachee to (1) develop two professional objectives and assess their significance, (2) identify possible obstacles to the objectives, and (3) determine some possible strategies and action steps for reaching the objectives. During the final week of the project, you will be moving towards closure in the coaching relationship and evaluating the effectiveness of your work with your coachee.
Because of the short duration of the coaching practicum, concluding whether significant progress has been made towards achieving the desired outcomes might be unclear. However, as you complete your coaching interaction, it is important for you and your coachee to reflect on the process in which you engaged as a collaborative team, including how you will bring the coaching relationship to a close and what next steps the coachee will take. In other words, the reflection is about the quality of the process and next steps more than the success of reaching the objectives.
As part of the reflection process, the coachee should complete the Coaching Feedback Form.
As the student-coach, you should address the following questions.

This defense in depth discussion scenario is an intentional cybersecurity attack on the water utility’s SCADA system. It occurs during the fall after a dry summer in Fringe City.
The water utility’s Information Technology (IT) person did not receive an expected pay raise and decides to reprogram the SCADA system to shut off the high-lift pumps. The operator’s familiarity with the SCADA system allows him to reprogram the alarms that typically notify operators of a high-lift pump failure. In addition, he prevents access to the SCADA system by others. A wildfire breaks out on the outskirts of the city.
Please identify what type(s) of new countermeasures should have been implemented to prevent this cyber-attack from occurring.

Analysis Essay #1
For this assignment, you are required to submit an essay that grapples with the rhetorical appeals in several selected works introduced by the instructor.
Feel free to either take an affirmative or negative stance on the topic of whether or not the author was effective or ineffective in their rhetorical appeals. Please make sure you are writing in the MLA format that we have been reviewing since the beginning sessions of coursework. Additionally, you should consult Blackboard and the text book to assist you in your analysis.
Here are your options, all from our textbook, of written expression to explore and analyze:
Additionally, if you are compelled to write your analysis paper on another reading selection from our textbook, please let me know, and I may be able to approve your request.
Again, this is not a summary assignment but, rather, an analytical essay that illustrates your understanding of effective writing practices. My expectation is that this essay’s length is at least five pages and includes a works cited page at the conclusion of the essay. The format of your paper should look identical to the MLA Sample Paper that is on the OWL Purdue website.
Support your thesis statement points with quotations and paraphrases but write the majority of your paper in your own words with your own ideas. (See the current edition of the Rules for Writers Handbook.)
I omitted the rubric for this assignment in the syllabus; however, this is the rubric that I will use to evaluate your first essay:
Here is your rubric for this paper:
