Philosophical Differences Between Qualitative And Quantitative Paradigms And Approaches

Philosophical Differences Between Qualitative And Quantitative Paradigms And Approaches

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 1 in the Frost e-book, Qualitative Research Methods in Psychology, and the required journal articles for this week. Also review last week’s PSY635 Week Two Discussion Scenario (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. In that scenario, the three instructors realized there are limits to the insights they can gain through anonymous counting of discussion posts. The instructors would like to answer two additional research questions: (a) How do their students actually feel about the intervention? and (b) How do students view the influence of the intervention on their learning inside and outside of the classroom (if applicable)?

In your initial post, compare the characteristics of appropriate research designs and recommend a qualitative research design that would facilitate answering the instructors’ additional questions. Explain the philosophical paradigm underlying the recommended approach. Evaluate the required articles for this week and describe the  assumptions the instructors might have to set aside as they enter into a qualitative research study. Be sure to identify any ethical issues that may apply to the research. Review the characteristics of the quantitative approach you described in the Week Two discussion. Explain the ways in which the quantitative approach and paradigm differs from the qualitative approach and paradigm you have recommended here

  • Apply the concept of language acquisition to your own academic success. Has your own language development affected your success as a student? As an employee? How?

Virology Discussion

Virology Discussion

  • Posted: A Day Ago
  • Due
  • Budget:  $7

Viruses are not life-forms themselves, because they can’t survive on their own. They must take over about the biology of viruses. Viruses are very small particles that act as cellular parasites. It’s cellular machinery in order to survive.

This chapter initially talked about factors common to all viruses, and then turned to those aspects that are particular to HIV. HIV is a member of a class of virus know as retroviruses. While most viruses use DNA as their genetic material, retroviruses use RNA Reverse transcriptase is a protein in retroviruses that copies RNA into DNA, and then helps the viral DNA integrate into the cellular chromosomes, where it will remain for the life of that infected cell.

For this discussion, choose one example of the viral biology to focus on. Choose one aspect that was unusual interesting to you. Do some research to find out a little more about it. Here is a list of examples, but you can think of other Ones as well:

a. the retrovirus life cycle

b. anti-HIV therapies

c. the ELISA “HIV test”

d. the fate of HIV infected cells

e. HIV latency

f. direct cell to cell spread of the HIV

g. how HIV kills T-cells that aren’t infected with HIV

h. If viruses aren’t alive, what motivates them to keep going on?

Each student should write up one primary post of about 150-200 words.

Assignment 3: How is Technology Changing the Face of Business Today?

Assignment 3: How is Technology Changing the Face of Business Today?

The traditional retail model has focused on finding high-margin, high-volume products or services because limited space means reduced space inventory. For example, organizations such as Walmart select the biggest hits from the broadest genres, called the “short head.” The short head means Walmart will only carry a select mix of country, pop, and rock that is calculated to provide the greatest cost/benefit. The business model of Amazon is different. Amazon provides the short head but also provides the “long tail” of more than 100,000 different audio selections. The competition for customers between the Walmart and Amazon marketplace is profoundly changing the face of retail business today.

Using the assigned reading and the Argosy University online library resources, find at least three scholarly articles that address similar current trends related to e-business and how e-business is changing the face of businesses today.

Using your company or a real-world example from your research, respond to the following:

  • Describe how technology is changing the face of businesses today.
  • Describe the most critical business processes that utilize information systems in your selected company.
  • Explain how IT makes the company’s business processes faster, cheaper, more accurate, and customer-savvy than that of competitors.
  • Cite at least three sources found in your online library research.

Give reasons and examples from your research to support your responses.
