  • Section II: Survey and statistics of the target language (15 points) In this section you will report surveys and statistics that provide quantitative information about the linguistic community of your choice. First you will provide information about the area(s) where the community is concentrated in Southern California. Next, you will report the number of speakers there are for the linguistic community in the USA as well as in Southern California. You should look for recent US and California census reports. Include graphs and figures in your report.
  • Section III: History of immigration of the target linguistic community (10 points) In brief this section you will report the history of the linguistic community. Specifically, you will try to report (but not limited to): When did the community begin to immigrate to the USA? Was there any mass immigration that took place? Were there any specific factors due to which the community immigrated to the USA? Feel free to include any interesting information about the linguistic community that you may uncover in your research.

Section V: Transcripts of interviews (10 points) Finally, you will include minimum 2 pages of your interview transcripts based on the questionnaire you created for the interview. You do not have to provide transcriptions for the entire interview if your interview is lengthy –only provide the segments crucial to the discussion in your paper.

Information sheet (2 points) Every project report should contain a filled-in information sheet at the beginning of the project. The information sheet is uploaded on canvas along with the project details.

Citations (3 points) For every resource you use you will need to provide citations. You can use either the MLA or the APA format, as long as you are consistent.

critical thinking assignment 42

(1) Evaluation skill: Evaluation is associated with the ability to judge the value of material for a given purpose. The judgements are to be based on definite criteria. These criteria may be determined by relevance, purpose, statements, and numerical values or calculations. Please watch the video clips provided on Evaluating Logic Part 1,2 and 3 Read the following vignette carefully and answer questions using the evaluation skill. Emily Smith just received a promotion at work that increased her annual salary to $42,000. She is eligible to participate in her employer’s 401(k) retirement plan to which the employer matches, dollar for dollar, workers’ contributions up to 5% of salary. However, Emily wants to buy a new $25,000 car in 3 years, and she wants to have enough money to make a $10,000 down payment on the car and finance the balance. Fortunately, she expects a sizable bonus this year that she hopes will cover that down payment in 3 years. A wedding is also in her plans. Emily and her boyfriend, Paul, have set a wedding date two years in the future, after he finishes medical school. In addition, Emily and Paul want to buy a home of their own in 5 years. This might be possible because two years later, Emily will be eligible to access a trust fund left to her as an inheritance by her late grandfather. Her trust fund has $80,000 invested at an interest rate of 5%. 1. Justify Emily’s participation in her employer’s 401(k) plan using the time value of money concepts by calculating the actual annual return on her own contributions. She will contribute $1,000 per year to her 401(k) for 25 years and the employer will match dollar for dollar. Assume that her 401(k) earns 6% per year for 25 years and all contributions are made at the end of each year. 2. Calculate the amount of money that Emily needs to set aside from her bonus this year to cover the down payment on a new car, assuming she can earn 4% on her savings. What if she could earn 10% on her savings? 3. What will be the value of Emily’s trust fund in 36 years, assuming she takes possession of $20,000 in 2 years for her wedding, and leaves the remaining amount of money untouched where it is currently invested? 4. Suggest at least two conditions that Emily and Paul could take to accumulate more for their retirement. 5. Suppose that Emily and Paul purchase a $200,000 home in 5 years and make $40,000 down payment immediately. Find the monthly mortgage payment assuming that the remaining balance is financed at a 3% fixed rate for 15 years. What if its mortgage term is 30 years? 6. What can you conclude about the relationship between the mortgage term and the amount of the monthly payment? From Question 5, is the monthly payment with the 30-year term half as large as the monthly payment with the 15-year term? Explain. (2) Deductive reasoning skill: Deductive reasoning is a logical process in which a conclusion is based on the concordance of multiple premises that are generally assumed to be true. Please watch the video clip provided on Deductive Reasoning Do the following problems (Q1 – Q5) and then, answer the last question (Q6) using the deductive reasoning skill. Use the following information to answer the following questions. ABC, Inc. Income Statement (in thousands) December 31, 2014 Sales $200,000 Cost of goods sold 140,000 Gross profit on sales 60,000 Operating expenses 56,000 Operating income (EBIT) 4,000 Interest expense 1,000 Earnings before tax 3,000 Income tax 1,050 Net income available to common stockholders $1,950 Number of shares outstanding 1, 500 Market price per share $22 ABC, Inc. Balance Sheet (in thousands) December 31, 2014 Assets Cash $2,000 Accounts receivable 17,800 Inventories 8,700 Total current assets 28,500 Gross fixed assets 70,000 Accumulated depreciation 26,500 Net fixed assets 43,500 Total assets $72,000 Liabilities and Equity Accounts payable $18,000 Accruals 13,350 Total current liabilities 31,350 Long-term debt 8,250 Total liabilities 39,600 Common stock (par value and paid in capital) 2,000 Retained earnings 30,400 Total stockholders’ equity 32,400 Total liabilities and equity $72,000 Industry Key Ratios Industry Average Ratios Current ratio 1.1 Quick ratio 0.60 Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) 25 days Fixed assets turnover 5.8 Total asset turnover 2.95 Liabilities-to-assets ratio 65% Times-interest-earned 3.2 Net profit margin 1.3% Return on equity 7.32% Price/earnings ratio 20.38 Market/book ratio 3.19 1. Calculate current ratio and acid test ratio for the firm. 2. Calculate DSO, fixed assets turnover, and total asset turnover for the firm. 3. Calculate liabilities-to-assets ratio and times-interest-earned ratio for the firm. 4. Calculate net profit margin and return on equity for the firm. 5. Evaluate the performance of the firm in the following areas: Liquidity management Asset management Debt management Profitability management When you explain the firm’s strength or weakness in each area, you must support your arguments through the evaluative reasoning process by providing reasons, methods, criteria, or assumptions behind the claims made. 6. Deductive reasoning starts with a general principle and deduces that it applies to a specific case. Deductive reasoning moves with exacting precision from the assumed truth of a set of premises to a conclusion which cannot be false if those premises are true. Explain the deductive reasoning process applied to analyze the firm’s performance.

Assignment 1: MNC Enters China

Select one (1) MNC that does not currently do business in China. Next, consider the steps that the company should consider in determining the feasibility of entering the Chinese market and establishing a market for its products or services there.

Focus on the following areas: corruption, political stability, exchange rate stability, regulatory oversight, freedom of the press, and rule of law. Research other factors that you believe you should evaluate. Additionally, consider the importance of culture in evaluating risk.

Then, go to the Hofstede Center’s Country Comparison cultural tool, located at http://geert-hofstede.com/china.html. Compare China to the U.S. on Hofstede’s six (6) key cultural dimensions scale by selecting “United States” from the “Comparison Country” drop-down menu.

 

Write an eight (8) page paper in which you:

1.      Summarize the business that you have chosen, and provide a two to three (2-3) paragraph justification as to why China would be a viable market for the selected business.

2.      Examine the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar and the Chinese Yuan for the last 24 months. Explain the major overall changes that have occurred and speculate on the key economic variables that most likely have influenced the exchange rate movements. Provide a rationale for your response.

3.      Analyze the major exchange rate risks associated with transaction and translation exposure within the Chinese market. Based on what you have gleaned from your analysis, predict the major changes that you believe will occur in the next 24 months. Justify your response.

4.      Recommend key steps that the chosen MNC could take in order to mitigate or eliminate exchange rate risk. Suggest one (1) method that the MNC in question could use with derivatives in order to mitigate, or eliminate such risks. Provide a rationale for your response.

5.      Recommend one (1) hedging technique geared toward managing the economic, transaction, and translation exposure in the Chinese market. Justify your response.

6.      Conduct a country risk assessment to ascertain whether or not management should support the proposal for your chosen MNC to enter into the Chinese market. Based on Geert Hofstede’s six (6) dimensions of culture, predict three (3) likely problems posed by the cultural differences between the chosen MNC’s culture and the Chinese culture. Provide a rationale for your response.

7.      Use at least six (6) quality references, with at least two (2) from peer reviewed journal articles.
