You are given $200,000 to fund your program for one year. Prepare a budget for your program, considering the resources that you need and how you would allocate funds.

Budgeting and developing a timeline are important steps in public health program planning. If a budget is properly developed it provides a solid foundation for guiding the implementation of the program as well as sustaining it. A timeline is also essential as it provides program planners a guide to use when determining the progress of a program.

For your course project this week, you are given $200,000 to fund your program for one year. Prepare a budget for your program, considering the resources that you need and how you would allocate funds. Some allocation of funds may include marketing DVDs, time for personnel to hold meetings, electricity, and cleaning services for the office space. For your budget, you do not need to include more complex allocations such as employee salaries, fringe benefits, overhead, phones, etc. Also, you should assume you have some in-kind support to use in your project. In-kind support is any resource you do not have to pay for such as free printing of educational brochures or free telephone services. In addition to your budget, you create a basic Gantt or PERT chart to present your timeline.

To Prepare for this Assignment:

· Review Chapter 7 in the Doyle text and Chapter 13 in the McKenzie text. Pay particular attention to how to create a budget and allocate funds.

· Given the $200,000 you received for your public health program, create a one-year budget.

· Refer to figure 10.2 on page 283 of the McKenzie text to view a sample budget sheet.

· Think about potential in-kind support/assets that may influence your budget.

· Review Chapter 12 in the McKenzie text, and see sample timeline and Gantt charts on pages 325-326. In addition, you may wish to use the Internet or your Optional Resources to research how to create a Gantt or PERT Chart. Consider what would be an adequate yet basic timeline to execute the program plan you have developed. Think about the tasks and activities that should be included in a basic timeline for your program plan.

The Assignment (2–3 pages)

· Using the sample budget sheets, create a budget allocating $200,000 for your public health program. Include at least one in-kind support/asset in your budget.

· Provide a rationale for your allocation of funds.

· Develop a basic timeline using a Gantt or PERT Chart.

· Provide a rationale for the basic timeline for your program plan.

In addition, complete an Executive Summary and Conclusion for your project. This is to be submitted with your completed Course

Define the term date rape (or acquaintance rape the terms are interchangeable) and how date rape (acquaintance rape) is distinguished from stranger rape, statutory rape, and spousal rape.

Assignment

 

Since your graduation from AIU, you have been working as the victims’ assistant advocate for the office of the local county prosecutor. You have a great working relationship with the prosecutor, Mary, and the remainder of the office. Normally, when you speak, the staff and prosecutor know you are speaking from a knowledge base that you have gained from personal experience, research, and reading, so they know that your comments are facts.

You like to use APA format to cite your sources, but this bulleted paper does not need to be in APA format. You have decided to speak with the prosecutor, Mary, on behalf of Maureen, the college student who was a victim of date rape. You want to convince Mary to support a change in the prosecutor’s policy of not prosecuting date rape cases when drugs or alcohol are involved. Maureen has a strict policy:  when someone wants to speak with her about changing an established policy, she wants the person to submit a paper of 3-5 pages containing topic bullets outlining his or her argument for the policy change prior to meeting her. She feels this way, she is not blind-sided, and she has an opportunity to research the topic prior to the meeting. You follow her policy and write a paper using bullets only, hoping that you can persuade Mary and the chief prosecutor to change their policy or, at a minimum, meet with you for a discussion about changing the policy. Maureen knows other young women are being attacked and that very often, date rape drugs are being used. Mary has agreed to review your policy change letter if you write it.  You write the policy change paper in which where you have the following two goals:

Educate Mary about date rape using statistics and information about date rape and date rape drugs to show her that Maureen is one of the types of victims who perpetrators take advantage of in these situations.  Explain why not prosecuting the cases is the wrong public and social policy. Of course, you are also hopeful that the victim, Maureen, also receives help in her case.

To organize your efforts before your meeting, create a detailed outline in bullet form that contains information for the following 5 topics:

List Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) and the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) reported crime statistics relating to rape and the strengths and weaknesses of each type of reporting.

Define the term date rape (or acquaintance rape the terms are interchangeable) and how date rape (acquaintance rape) is distinguished from stranger rape, statutory rape, and spousal rape.

List the types and uses of date rape drugs.

Describe the victim offender relationship, including the following:  How victims are viewed by perpetrators of date rape the special problems of date rape prosecutions.  How society and jurors may view date rape (blaming the victim based on the perceived precipitation, facilitation, or provocation of the victim) What is your position on this issue, and what action do you think would impact this social policy?

In this assignment, you are to create essentially the same website as you did in JavaScript, only this time you are to use PHP to generate the page content.  You just have to populate a MySQL database with your data, and add your PHP code.  You should find it reachable from a browser on your host machine (or any other machine on your local network).

To get you through the initial details and save you some of the work, I am giving you a PHP file that already does much of the work. You have to make it work with your data, maybe improve the appearance, and add the code needed to keep score.  (That part is enough of a challenge as it is, so the rest is pretty much given.)  If you are adept at PHP you may change anything you wish.

I have recorded the classroom presentations on everything you need for this assignment setting up the MySQL database using XAMPP, and running the PHP code.  You will find these videos on my website.

Here is the assignment and the initial PHP code.

Use the test.php to test the ability to run PHP from your browser (http://[the vm’s ip address]/[your subdirectory of html]/test.php)

Use the dbtest.php to test the ability to connect php to mysql.  FIrst edit it to have your account into. Use the showtables2.php to test access to your data. Edit the file with your account table info. Then request it from a web browser on the host machine. It should produce a table with your data.

Make the same edits in the cargame.php file and perhaps rename it. Then request it from your brower.

Describe how leadership behaviors influence (positively or negatively) the facilitation of those social networks and the affect, if any, on employee performance.

In the article, The influence of transformational leadership on workplace relationships and job performance, Li and Hung (2009) examine the relationships of transformational leadership, workplace relationships, and job performance. Their research indicated that transformational leader behaviors influence building and maintaining the social networks that help facilitate higher levels of employee task performance.

  • Think of an organization that you are familiar with and the social networks of that organization. Using information from the Li and Hung article as well as your understanding of FRLD, describe how leadership behaviors influence (positively or negatively) the facilitation of those social networks and the affect, if any, on employee performance.

What is the motivation of the research? What related work has been performed? How the research was conducted, both how data were collected and analyzed?

Objectives:

The objectives of this assignment are for you to:

  • explore a topic/method related to human computer interaction
  • deliver a 15 minute, preferably interactive, presentation on the topic.

 

Presentation

Your task is to hold a 15 minute, preferably interactive, presentation on your paper.

You should pay particular attention to the following when preparing your presentation:

  1. What is the motivation of the research?
  2. What related work has been performed?
  3. How the research was conducted, both how data were collected and analyzed?
  4. What are the key findings?
  5. What insights/lessons learned?

You may have to decide what to present as in many cases, it’s unlikely to present every detail of a paper in 15 minutes.

3. Discussion

You should identify a few interesting / critical questions to discuss with the class.

Tips for preparing presentation slides

When preparing your slides, keep the following in mind:

  • Each slide should have one main theme/point
  • Slide title should reflect a theme/point
  • Text
    • use minimal text to help audience follow presentation, not to read all the details
    • don’t type everything you want to say into a slide
    • use just enough text to remind yourself & show important data
    • you can add speaker notes to each slide at the bottom in PowerPoint (not for reading out)
    • keep text large enough to read
    • highlighting may be used to draw attention, e.g., colored text, circles, arrows
    • use bullet points
    • Main bullets should address the slide’s main theme
    • if they don’t, they probably should be on a different slide
    • Sub-bullets should be elaboration of the main points
    • The hierarchy should be obvious by indentation and/or font sizes
  • Figures
    • Include Figures only if they help explain or describe the presentation point
    • include brief captions (not figure numbers) if needed, or highlight important data from figure using circles/arrows/highlights, etc.
    • figures are more appealing to the audience than cluttered text
    • consider reproducing figures if the original is hard to see/read
  • Animation
    • May be good for illustrating difficult concepts or point, but don’t overdo it
