Arrange Networks and Trees, Map Color and Other Channels

 

Arrange Networks and Trees

Q1. (a) Briefly introduce how Force-directed algorithms encode networks.

(b) In force-directed placement, does spatial proximity (visual clump) always indicate grouping/ community? Explain. 

(c) One of the weakness of force-directed placement is that the layouts are often nondeterministic. What does it mean? 

(d) Illustrate the scalability issue of force-directed placement briefly. 

Q2. (a) How does adjacency matrix encode networks? 

(b) Give an example of matrix view of a network that’s not from the textbook and explain what it is. You need to include the reference if the answer is found online. 

Q3. (a) How does treemaps encode trees? 

(b) Given an example of Treemap layout that’s not from the textbook and explain what it is. You need to include the reference if the answer is found online. 

 

Map Color and Other Channels

Q4. Color can be best understood in terms of three separate channels: luminance, hue, and saturation. Briefly explain how does this system specify colors. (Figures can be used to help illustration.)

Q5. Explain the meaning of HSL /HSV and how does this system specify colors?

Q6. (a) What are three major problems with the common continuous rainbow colormap?

(b) Is there any way to address these three problems? Explain how. 

Contracts/Breach of Contracts

 Create an enforceable contract in any department of a health care organization. How can a contract be legally valid? When is a contract voidable? What happens when one of the parties cannot perform the obligations written in the contract?  

Economic Motivations

The long-term care industry implements a great deal of ethical applications, that are derived from state and federal regulations. For-profit organizations incorporate care bylaws into policies and procedures and any changes are generally related to the workforce via addendums within the organizational personnel employee handbook. Interestingly, regarding the long-term care industry, specific laws governing the ethical care of residents becomes enacted through federal and state mandates, such laws, applications to improve both principles, beneficence and nonmaleficence are to a vast degree enforced by federal and state agencies and must be followed by the individual long-term care facilities; furthermore, long-term care organizations cannot change such laws, policies, and procedures. Yet, the federal and state agencies can and do change these laws according to statistical incidence such as falls rates, medication errors, and reluctance to comply pertaining to yearly facility inspections. Another poignant and specific difference relates to appointment vs. election. Miller (2006) cites, health care entities ultimate responsibility centers on establishing ethical goals and moral polices, select the chief executive, and appoint medical staff members (p.30). With this said, regarding the long-term care industry, a specific and mandatory reason for an organization to be interesting in ethical applications of care would center on state and federal compliance. This in itself would fall under an economic reason; along with this, the bottom line for the organization to operate would be to institute such ethical policies in order to become and maintain eligibility for Medicare and Medicaid funding.

Moral Motivations

Beauchamp and Childress (2009) suggest that health care organizations and their quality of life perceptions are intertwined within ever changing and emerging platforms of ethical applications that are based on moral motivation. Therefore, long-term care organizations are constantly evaluating and revaluating quality of life principles that are based on moral motivation. The morals intertwined within caring for individuals, specifically the elderly have taken on a distinct set of relationships that are emergent upon nonmaleficence and the principles of respect for individual autonomy and justice. Long term care organizations are interested in being ethical in terms of their commitment to caring for the elderly, their disease progressions, and end of life aspects because the definition of care centers on the moral staple, not to inflict harm. The opposite would be negligence and is classified as the absence of care, a departure from professional standards that determine specific and due care (Beauchamp & Childress, 2009). It is important to note that malpractice law suits include one common entity called duty, meaning caregivers have a duty to take care of their patients in two specific areas, quality of care and quality of life aspects. Both of these areas must be proven to be deficient, yet the deficiency does not always need to be intentional, thus a lack of intent to harm does not relieve the caregiver from their duty to care for their patients.

Organizational Behavior

 The concepts of power, trust, influence, and politics are critical to the study of organizational behavior.  Select one of these areas and find two (2) empirical studies, published within the past 10 years, and summarize each article (researcher’s methods and findings), as well as writing a concise analysis, interpretation, and conclusion about the topic.

Analytic Post

Write brief answers to the following (this should take 100 words or less, total):

1. Where is this?

2. How do you know this?

3. What else do you know about the setting?

4. How do you know this?

5. What do you think the woman in pink does for a living?

6. Why do you think this?

7. What happened to the man in the wheel chair (and where did it happen?)?

8. How do you know this?

9. What does he do for a living?

10. How do you know this?

11. What is his relationship to the woman/the photo on the magazine cover?

12. How do you know this?

13. What writing, if any, appears in this scene, and what is its importance?

 

Now, write at least 100 additional words- or whatever is required to reach 200 total- responding in any way at all to this brief, very famous clip from an influential film made long before any of us were born. One main rule for all of this writing: you may not ever say “I,” “we,” “you,” or in any way write in the first or second person voice. Furthermore, you may never refer to a film director or audience (or any other author/technician/creator of this piece of art). Find another way to write in an objective third person voice about this clip. Seek out evidence-based, declarative and/or descriptive sentences (look up those words if unfamiliar to you). Observations of what is actually in the scene– not your speculations on what it ‘could mean’ or ‘might be’. It could be something you hear, it could be what is suggested in the ways the camera moves or when it points at specific things. But focus on the things actually happening and present only in what the scene provides. Imagine there was no film crew or camera at all even, if that helps. Find a way!

Sociological Imagination

At a minimum, read the excerpts printed in blue on the top of pages 3 and 5 of C. Wright Mills classic “The Sociological Imagination”.  . Then answer the discussion prompt below.

Wright Mills identifies the central task of sociology to be grasping the relationships between history (including memorable societal events, social forces, and large scale upheavals) and biography (how our own lives play out).

To fully explore this idea, identify a social phenomenon that occurred sometime in your childhood or early adulthood that you think has shaped your biography and influenced who you are. This can be an historical event, a cultural trend, a feature of the economy, a political event or issue, or a social issue. (For example, a Baby Boomer born between 1946 and 1961 – might say the Vietnam War or the sexual revolution was an important personal influence.)

Briefly describe the phenomenon you have chosen and specifically discuss how it has influenced your life.

DO NOT USE 9/11 or COVID 19.  

Statistics Help!
