1 REQUIREMENTS You will need to complete the following tasks and deliver your finding in a written report by August 6th. Research the six scenarios given below in option 1 for added capacity to uncover any additional costs/benefits to society these options might pose. Write a two page summary describing each scenario. Discuss the pros and cons of each scenario, including such items as renewable sources of fuel, environmental factors, etc. Give examples of each type of project by name and location and indicate the sources of your information. Please use either IEEE or APA style. Do an economic analysis of the six scenarios. Use a 20-year period and assume an inflation rate of 4 percent. Include your calculations and any assumptions in the report. Also answer the following questions: Which scenario is the best from an economic basis? Are there any other considerations, such as environmental/health/social issues, which should be considered? Which scenario have you selected based on the answers to a and b? What is the estimated timeframe to implement the different options? (base your timelines on existing projects of similar size if possible, use MS Project/Project Libre to generate the timelines) Make a recommendation regarding the best option for the utility. 2 Situations A utility company in one of the western states is considering the addition of 50 megawatts of generating capacity to meet expected demands for electrical energy by the year 2025. The three options that the utility has are: Add generating capacity. Constructing one of the scenarios below would do this. Purchase power from Canada under terms of a 20-year contract. Do neither of the above. This assumes that brownouts will occur during high demand periods. The utility presently has 200 megawatts of installed capacity and generates an average of 1.2 billion kilowatt-hours annually. Maximum generation capability is 1.3 billion kW-hours. By the year 2025, this reserve of 100,000,000 kW-hours will be used. 2.1 OPTION 1 – ADD GENERATING CAPACITY For this option there are six possible scenarios: Hydroelectric dam. Initial cost is $ 50 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 1.7 million. Project life is 30 years before a major rebuild is required. Wind farm. Initial cost is $ 28 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.5 million. Project life is 12 years. At this time new equipment will be required. Solar power. Initial cost is $ 32 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 1.1 million. Project life is 10 years. Natural gas turbines. Initial cost is $ 14 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $2.0 million. Project life is 12 years. Nuclear plant. Initial cost is $ 70 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.0 million. Project life is 25 years. Coal-fired turbines. Initial cost is $ 35 million. Annual operating and maintenance cost is $ 2.7 million. Project life is 28 years. 2.2 OPTION 2 – BUY POWER FROM CANADA The annual additional energy requirement is 350,000,000 kilowatt-hours. The cost of energy from Canada is 1.48 cents per kilowatt-hour for the first year. The price will be escalated at 4 percent annually for the 20-year contract period. 2.3 OPTION 3 – DO NOTHING Local municipalities are very opposed to this option since companies may have to close down for short periods of time. Also, it would be very difficult to attract new businesses. If nothing is done, by the year 2025 it is anticipated that some companies will be without power for short periods of time during the summer months. These are known as brownouts. It is estimated, based on historical data that these outages will occur once a week during July and August for periods of 6 hours.

Consciously and sub-consciously we have “boxed” leadership in the same way. Looking back we interpret events and interactions, sort out the relevant and important, and apply meaning to the events. This assignment we will use Steve Jobs as our point of focus and our source for leadership events– our retrospective examination of his life as a leader. Assess Jobs as a leader from each perspective: 1. Traits (why traits failed) 2. Style (why style was underutilized) 3. Skills (skills that should have been used) Explain how Jobs’ leadership is explained through the lens of each: 1. Path-Goal 2. LMX 3. Transactional 4. Transformational 5. Charismatic 6. Authentic Non-traditional: 1. Follower (was Jobs a follower, how were followers a part of Jobs’ leadership?) 2. Conclusion (final heading – best represents Jobs and why others were ruled out) • APA format (margins, font, spacing) • APA in-text citations when needed • APA reference page • Proofread for grammar and content • Ensure that all headings and questions are addressed See agenda for headings Remember, this is a detailed analysis. Each of the above (a-j) should be a heading and explain how Jobs, as a leader, represents (or does not represent) the corresponding school of thought. Provide supplemental sources to give your position more credibility, but keep in mind that this is not a biography of Jobs (there are many recent biographies that do not qualify as acceptable sources for this assignment). Finally, which leadership perspective best identifies Steve Jobs as a leader? Explain why, and explain why other options were ruled out (k).

Prompt for Essay 2: Argumentative on Drama Write a strongly persuasive essay on one of the following: 1. In Trifles, once the women have pieced together the clues and solved the mystery of Mr. Wright’s death, they quickly come to an agreement to suppress the information from the men who are investigating the murder. Construct an argument in which you identify whether the women were right to withhold their discovery from the investigators or not. 2. In August Wilson’s Fences, are Troy’s problems self-created or is he a victim of his past? Make a convincing argument on this issue. 3. Oedipus downfall in Oedipus the King: fate, freewill or influence of others Take Note as you write all the essays: If you craft your thesis well, it will contain a set of key words, phrases, and ideas which should then show up in key places/transitions throughout your paper. This stylistic and structural practice builds coherence and clarity in your essay. Sub-claims (Reasons) & Evidence (Textual Evidence): Your thesis/main claim statement must be supported by clearly organized evidence drawn primarily from the text of the story itself. Your argument, then, will be arranged with a main claim/thesis, sub-claims (reasons), and textual evidence. Take care to note that your textual evidence (quoted, paraphrased or summarized bits from the story) is not self-evident; it requires explanatory comment preceding it—to direct readers to what specifically in the evidence illustrates your sub-claim and main claim—and often following it for full elaboration and/or recapitulation. • Review the section in A Writer’s Reference on the MLA and Plagiarism • Use Writing Resources in the Course documents tab. MLA Style: Please follow MLA guidelines in formatting, mechanics and stylistics. Papers that do not follow MLA style will not be graded. I advise you look at the sample MLA papers in your textbooks You do not need any secondary source citations or research to support your analysis, but you must cite the source for the story being analyzed and A Writer’s Reference.

Essay Assignment: Due December 6th, on Blackboard by 11:59 PM. Note: At least one draft (hardcopy, handed up in class) should be given to the instructor one week before due date (last date to give instructor draft is 1st December). If draft is not given, 20% will be taken off final grade for essay. Assignment Objective: This assignment is intended to provide you with the opportunity to reflect upon the course and material over the semester. Instructions: In this essay you will need think back prior to the semester and construct how you would have described ‘the self.’ Consider as your guide the many ways that the self has been studied over the course of the semester. For instance, you might consider the ways we have discussed: (1) the nature of the soul, (2) personal identity, (3) the relationship to others, (4) the ‘racial’ or ‘gendered’ self, (5) the self and freedom, (6) the social influences (economics, technology, and consumerism, for example) upon your self-development, etc. You should select one to two dimensions of the self and provide a description of what you thought about those prior to the course. Then, give a description of what you think about that or those dimension(s) of the self now. Be sure to reference the course material, either through the literature, or an author, or a driving concept from the course that you can explain in reference to the concept(s) you now hold. Within your discussion provide a comparison of what you thought prior to the course to what you now think of those dimension(s) of the self. In what ways has your conception of the ‘self’ changed, stayed the same, become enriched (or not). Be sure to give some explanation as to what has changed, or has not changed, and in what ways. Format: The paper should be in Times New Roman font, size 12, and double spaced. It should be about 1,200 words (approx. 4-5 pages). You will be required to have a bibliography and a cover page which includes the following: 1) The title of your paper. 2) Your name. 3) Your Student ID number. Citations: The recommended style of citation is Chicago (please see Blackboard for guidelines). You can use other styles if you like but the most important thing is to remain clear and consistent in the referencing style that you use. Please use at least 2-3 citations. Instruction for upload: Please upload it online onto Blackboard on the tab on the left hand side, entitled ‘Final Essay’ before midnight on December 6th. No hard copy is needed, but, as stated above, you will be required to give a hard copy of the draft at least one week before to the instructor. Grading: The final essay will be graded on: (1) how the instructions of the assignment were followed, (2) the accurateness and clarity in descriptions of course material (authors, core concepts, arguments, etc.), (3) the precision/correctness of writing, and (4) accuracy of referencing style.
