Reflection: David and Goliath

David and Goliath In the excerpt we read from David and Goliath, the main focus in the chapter was the theory of “Big fish, Small pond”. The basis of the theory is that why throw a kid into a hard environment when he can excel in a moderate environment. This often applies to Education. I qualify with this statement; I see both benefits to it and restraints. If you put a kid in an average environment, for example, putting a over qualified kid in a college prep English class. You would expect him to be the smartest kid in the class, answering all the questions and scoring well on all the tests. He would be the star and people would recognize his excellence. But what good is that?….

Property Taxes

Property taxes – local taxes, immovable property/land tax, motor vehicle tax . (Lukas Szita) A property tax also known as millage tax is a charge on possessions that the holder is obligatory to pay. The tax is imposed by the governing authority of the area in which the property is placed; it can be a national government of country, a federated state, a county/region, or a municipality (In Slovak Republic property tax is the most important income for municipalities). We basically distinguish four general kinds of property: land, improvements to land (which are immobile man-made objects, such as buildings), personal property (transportable man-made objects), and intangible property. Combination of land and developments are called real estate or reality. Under a property tax system, the governing authority implements assessment….

soc 2

PART 1 Vessing (2011) states, “a society needs a variety of social institutions in order to function adequately. However, it does appear that not all citizens have equal access to participation in them, and that one’s social class and ascribed characteristics may limit one’s ability to benefit from them. This disparity results in unequal access to all that the institutions have to offer” (p. 197). Review the various social institutions discussed in Chapters 10 and 11 of the text, Sociology: Beyond Common Sense. Based on what you have read in the text, describe at least two institutions that do not provide equal access? If you were asked to implement changes from a sociological perspective, what changes would you suggest? Support your answer with detailed examples.  PART 2 According….

m3 Assignment 1: Discussion—Behavioral Heuristics

Assignment 1: Discussion—Behavioral Heuristics Behavioral heuristics, such as availability, anchoring, vividness, storage, conjunction fallacy, and representativeness, all reflect behavioral traits, which if left unchecked may lead to systematic bias in the choices you make. For example, anchoring and availability can lead to disastrous decisions. You may know how to recognize these heuristics, but consider how they may have influenced you in the past. Find at least one example from your own career where you, or another manager, allowed one of these or another pitfall, to sway you from the mean. Respond to the following:

Why did you/they ignore the base rates? What other statistically relevant factors did you/they fail to incorporate? How could you have altered the framing of the situation to make a better decision?

discussion

the author states “several practice-oriented agent-based simulation models have been developed that are aimed to support policy making”. Research two of these and discuss them, clarifying how they are “agent-based”, what their game entails, and how they tie into policy-making. You’ll need two references with citations for each reference to do this correctly. A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, find two examples of agent-based games.

B) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads by Sunday at midnight, evaluating the pros and cons of that student’s recommendations. Your comments should be engaging and extend the conversation started with the thread. ALL original posts and comments must be substantive and include APA support. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”) NOTE: These discussions….
