There are two related questions to address in this week’s discussion.What would you do if you were asked to assess a death row inmate’s mental state, in order to deliver an opinion on competency to be executed? Do you believe you can and should perform an objective assessment? What would you do if it were a requirement of your job?What would you do if you were asked by the defense to evaluate someone prior to a capital sentencing hearing? You would be asked to identify possible mitigating factors. Would you be able to provide an unbiased assessment? What would you do if the sentencing hearing was in 2 days, and the defense attorneys are rushing you, and there is no time for them to find another psychologist? How about if you could not uncover any mitigating factors
Delete all blue colored instructions from the templatebefore submitting your paper for grading.The Cover Page shown here is on a separate page from the body of your paper.Assessment 3Learners Full NamePSYC-FPX3002Capella UniversityMonth, YearIntroductionThe introduction of this paper includes three elements:A brief statement regarding the ongoing debate about whether video games are harmful or helpful to children and adolescents. This can be one or two sentences to give the reader some background on this issue.A clear thesis statement telling the reader your position in this debate (videos are harmful or videos are helpful). Because there is research support for both sides of this video game debate, your thesis statement must be concise, very clear, specific, and persuasive. Guidance for creating a clear thesis statement is found in this article by Baggett (2017)..A very brief introduction (overview) of the basic arguments that support your thesis statement. Be sure to include at least one in-text citation to a journal article that supports your thesis statement. Including citations raises the professional credibility of your statements above the level of personal opinion. End your introduction by leading the reader into the next section of your paper, your arguments.ArgumentsIn this section present your arguments in greater detail to support your thesis statement. Each paragraph should be a brief statement about what the research shows to support your thesis statement. Apply relevant psychological principles (e.g., violence, prosocial behavior, empathy, bonding, competition, aggression) in your arguments. It is essential that you include in-text citations to the journal articles that support your arguments. Depending on your wording, this section may contain one to three paragraphs.CounterargumentsIn this section present counterarguments to your thesis statement. Counterarguments show the reader you are aware of the opposing viewpoints and that you can cite sources, using in-text citations, with brief descriptions of the counterarguments while applying relevant psychological principles (violence, prosocial behavior, empathy, etc.) of those counterarguments. Depending on your wording, this section may contain one to three paragraphs.ConclusionIn this section you state your conclusion. Your conclusion should support your thesis statement and provide a very brief summary of the arguments and counterarguments presented in your paper. The conclusion is similar to closing arguments in a court trial where the attorneys present their perspective of the results of the trial and why the jury should vote to support their position or client. You are providing a conclusion based on the evidence you have presented in your arguments and counterarguments.ReferencesThe reference page is provided on a separate page of your paper. A reference in APA style for each cited source of information must be included in the reference page. You may also copy and paste references found in the course room if you cite those sources because they are presented in APA style. References are listed alphabetically by the first authors last name.
“The Cultural Other”Research the history and traditions of a culture that is of special interest to you.

Include a key historical event that has some influence on the case.
GOLF TEE MANUFACTURING AT GLM LTD GLM Ltd manufactures golf tees. Golf tees are made in various sizes and colours. The focus here is on the production of their most popular product, packs of 20 golf tees (5 each of blue, red, yellow and white). The manufacturing process is in two main stages (tee manufacturing and packaging). The first stage is Tee manufacturing. The company buys in plastic pellets and coloured dyes. There are several plastic extrusion machines. Operators load the machine with a specific quantity of plastic pellets and required dye colour. The machines heat the pellets until they melt and then they are forced into dyes into the shape of the tees. The machines are very quick and they can make several thousand tees an hour. The reliability of the machines is so high, that they quickly reach target production levels. Tees of different colour are placed into large boxes ready to be taken to the packing area.The second stage is packaging. This area consists of between 3 to 9 operators, depending on production demand, most of who are women. The operators are on part- time contracts and work between 12 to 35 hours per week but this can vary. When they need more operators (due to high demand) they tend to recruit temporary staff many of whom have not worked in the company before. Each operator sits at a production desk which has boxes of each coloured tee (blue, red, yellow and white), boxes of clear plastic bags and cardboard tops. The operator counts 5 tees from each box of tees, places them in the plastic bag, puts a cardboard top over the open end of the plastic bag and inserts two staples to seal the bag (using an automatic stapler). Because the job is repetitive and boring the production manager has arranged the area such that the operators sit in a circle so they can talk to each other and listen to the radio. In the centre of the circle is a large box into which the operators throw the finished product. The area also has a production assistant (usually a trainee) who fills up the boxes of tees and replaces the finished product box when required. The packaging area has a daily production target and any bonus earned is distributed equally between the operators.The operators often complain that they dont know how well they are performing against the target and therefore whether they are performing to expectation. They also say that sometimes the temporary packers (i.e., those brought in when demand is high) can be disruptive in the team and that the supervisor does not deal with this when it happens. The supervisor reports that there are some operators who have been there a long time tend to dominate over others in terms of how hard they should work (they tend to set the work pace).A recent management committee meeting examined the productivity levels for the operators as function of the number of operators working (see Figure below). The supervisor reasoned there should be a direct relationship between the number of people working and productivity (note there is no competition for resources e.g., tees). For example, 8 operators should produce twice as much as 4 operators who should produce twice as much as 2 operators etc. This is what one would expect if they worked alone. However, this was not the case. As the number of operators working increased, the corresponding increase in productivity was not as predicted. The actual productivity levels were always below the predicted. In fact 9 operators often produced no more than did 7 operators! The supervisor pointed out the data had been averaged over several weeks (and many operators) and therefore could not be due to the effect of any particular operator. The supervisor was very concerned about this and suggested that working within a group situation had reduced each operators productivity level. This problem led to intense discussion amongst those at the meeting.
