Excel Review Assignment #1 – ISM3011 Ask before/after/during class or come into office/online hours if you have questions on any of this. Refer to the syllabus on Academic Dishonesty and group/individual work and allowable help for all projects – also remember it’s your responsibility to protect your work. Before you start — read this whole assignment and use your optional text and/or review the tutorials as necessary on Canvas or www.bwarner.org/tips. A project overview for each project is also available. Part 1 – Create / Download / Parts • Create a blank workbook. Name it using your Last name followed by your initials and _ 1EX (underscore then 1EX). For Example: WarnerBL_1EX .xlsx. Either extension is fine. • Download the Word file Ex1 Data1-F15.docx and copy/paste Word table from the file into the 2nd worksheet in your workbook. Name the tab ‘2014 Sales’. • Download the Word file Ex1 Data2-F15.docx and copy/paste Word table from the file into the 3rd worksheet in your workbook. Name the tab ‘2015 Sales’. • Adjust the column widths of both Sales worksheets so that no data is cut off. • Do not add any formulas or cells to the Sales worksheets Part 2 – Summary Worksheet • Create a summary sheet from the Sales worksheets. Name the worksheet ‘Summary’. Build two summaries on this worksheet. Summary 1: Comparison of Sales by Month and Summary 2: Comparison of Sales by Store ID. • Use the project overview as a guide for the format. Use colors, borders and backgrounds to make the worksheet look professional. o Include the following:  Month and Store ID headings that reference the 2014 Sales worksheet. This means if ‘January’ is changed to ‘Jan’ in the 2014 Sales worksheet, the summary worksheet heading will also change. Do the same with the Store ID and 2014 Sales worksheet.  Formulas that reference the 2014 and 2015 Sales worksheets. If the Sales worksheets change, the summary worksheet should also adjust automatically.  Correct format for all book totals (commas, no decimal places)  Correct % change formulas in both tables. This is how much the totals have changed compared to the 2014 totals.  Correct format for all % change (% sign, 1 decimal place).  Use borders and background colors on the column & row headings for both tables of data • On the summary worksheet, use conditional formatting to highlight any % change cell that greater than zero with a bright color background. If the % change is negative, display the value with a red font and no background color. o There should be only two conditional formats set on each cell. o **Note – to do the conditional formatting steps, you can set the conditional formatting for one cell and then use the format painter to apply to other appropriate cells. If the values are all changed, the conditional formatting should still work. Once you have it working, check by changing some values & see if the conditional formatting changes correctly. Return to the original values/formulas in the cell before you submit. If you don’t use the format painter for this be sure you still try it out & understand how it works. Part 3 – Chart • Create 2 column graphs displaying Totals by Month and Totals by Store ID. Include: • Titles on both chart as well as labeling on the x and the y axis. • Color fonts for the title and axis labels (not dark blue or black) • Large font for the title (at least 16 point) • Include a legend • Format the background (chart area/walls) of the graph with a texture – use one that is easy to see. • Be sure that if any headings or numbers in the worksheets change, these changes are automatically reflected in your chart. • Add a star or banner shape between the two charts and add your name. Be sure the text is part of the shape (not a shape and a separate text box). Part 4 – Finishing Up • Be sure your worksheet tabs are named correctly and if possible, make each worksheet tab a distinctly different color. If your version of Excel doesn’t allow this, don’t worry about it. But do delete any additional worksheets in the workbook. • Create a title in the first row of your summary worksheet. Use the merge and center feature (across all columns with data) and a larger font & different font color (not blue or black). Also add a background color. Add a comment with your email address and the date your spreadsheet was created. • Below the title, add a row with the current date (use the today or now formula) so it is updated whenever the spreadsheet is opened). • Check your formulas, be sure they are correct and make sense. For example, if you are subtracting 2 numbers don’t use the SUM formulas (sum is for adding). Excel may figure out what you mean, but we want the formulas to be used correctly (show that you understand how to use them). • Check your worksheet for errors! Potential errors in cells show up as small green triangles in the top left corner of each cell. Do a little Googling on error checking for your version of Excel and be sure you have error checking turned on and that you reconcile each error so they don’t display when we open your project for grading. Sample: Project Submission Instructions / Notes: • Office/online hours get busy as deadlines approach. If you procrastinate and wait until the last days to work on your project, you may not be able to get all the help you want. • The only way we can fairly grade the projects is if we check for each requirement. Please go through the instructions before you submit & be sure you have done each one correctly so you don’t miss out on points. Compare your solution to the project overview. • Submitting: o Remember to leave all of the internal file properties intact for your project, if they are modified or deleted, you project won’t be accepted (see syllabus for more on this). o Read and follow the instructions in the Assignments section of Canvas on uploading and checking your upload. If you follow these instructions you can ensure that your project is uploaded correctly (and is the correct project). Be sure that Access / Excel are closed before you try to upload your project files. o If your project doesn’t upload correctly before the due date, it will be considered late and be assessed the late penalty – even it was finished on time. This is the only way we can ensure that students check their Canvas submissions. • Technology problems relating to your home computer (Windows based or Mac), internet connection or slow Canvas access are not valid excuses for late/missing work, unless Canvas is down for 6+ hours on the due date. Computers at USF computer labs and the library are available; leave enough time to access them as needed. Also give yourself enough time that if a TA can’t answer a question, you’ll have time to contact me & I can either help you or make an allowance in your grade. If you wait until the last days, I may not be able to do either.

AUCS 340: Ethics in the Professions Medical Ethics Case Study You work as a registered nurse in a busy urban emergency department. Today you are caring for an adorable four-year old female patient who presents with a broken right arm and several bruises around her abdomen. You suspect that this patient is a victim of accidental trauma (child abuse). If you report your suspicions to the proper authorities, your state laws mandate that the child be removed from the care of the parents until an investigation of the allegation is complete. You know that this may take up to a week. Answer the following questions. 1) What type of ethical problem is this professional facing and why? 2) What steps should this medical professional take and why? 3) What would be the result of the nurse’s actions if this child is found to have a genetic problem and it is not a case of child abuse? 4) Are there other types of professionals who may also be required to report cases of suspected child abuse? If yes, what type of professional would that be? 5) What would you do in this situation?

Fact Debate Brief Introduction Crime doesn’t pay; it should be punished. Even since childhood, a slap on the hand has prevented possible criminals from ever committing the same offense; whether it was successful or not depended on how much that child wanted that cookie. While a slap on the wrist might or might not be an effective deterrent, the same can be said about the death penalty. Every day, somewhere in the world, a criminal is stopped permanently from committing any future costs, but this is by the means of the death. While effective in stopping one person permanently, it does nothing about the crime world as a whole. While it is necessary to end the career of a criminal, no matter what his or her crime is, we must not end it by taking a life. Through this paper, the death penalty will be proven ineffective at deterring crime by use of other environmental factors. Definition: The death penalty is defined as the universal punishment of death as legally applied by a fair court system. It is important for it to be a fair legal system, as not to confuse it with genocide, mob mentality, or any other ruling without trial. Claim 1: Use of the death penalty is in decline Ground 1: According to the book The Death Penalty: A Worldwide Perspective by Roger Hood and Carolyn Hoyle, published Dec. 8th, 2014, the Oxford professors in criminology say “As in most of the rest of the world, the death penalty in the US is in decline and distributed unevenly in frequency of use” even addressing that, as of April 2014, 18 states no longer have a death penalty, and even Oregon and Washington are considering removing their death penalty laws. Furthermore, in 2013, only 9 of these states still retaining the death penalty actually executed someone. Warrant 1: The death penalty can be reinstated at any time, but so far, it hasn’t been. At the same time, more states consider getting rid of it altogether. Therefore, it becomes clear that even states don’t want to be involved with this process showing that this is a disliked process. Claim 2: Even states with death penalty in effect still have high crime rates. Ground 2: With the reports gathered from fbi.gov, lawstreetmedia.com, a website based around political expertise and research determined the ranking of each state based on violent crime, published September 12th, 2014. Of the top ten most violent states, only three of which had the death penalty instituted (Maryland #9, New Mexico #4, Alaska #3). The other seven still had the system in place, and, despite it, still have a high amount of violent crime. On the opposite end of the spectrum, at the bottom ten most violent states, four of which, including the bottom-most states, do not have the death penalty in place. Warrant 2: With this ranking, it literally proves that the death penalty does not deter crime, or that there is a correlation between having the death penalty and having a decrease in the crime rate. Therefore, the idea of death penalty deterring crime is a null term in the sense that there is no, or a flawed connection. Claim 3: Violent crime is decreasing (but not because if the death penalty) Ground 3 A: According to an article published by The Economist, dated July 23rd, 2013, the rate of violent crime is in fact decreasing, but not because of the death penalty, but rather, because we have more police. From 1995 to 2010, policing has increased one-fifth, and with it, a decline in crime rate. In fact, in cities such as Detroit where policing has been cut, an opposite effect, an increase in crime, has been reported. Ground 3 B: An article from the Wall Street Journal, dated May 28th, 2011, also cites a decline in violent, only this time, citing the reason as a correlation with poverty levels. In 2009, at the start of the housing crisis, crime rates also dropped noticeably. Oddly enough, this article points out the belief that unemployment is often associated with crime; instead, the evidence presented is environmental in nature. Warrant 3: Crime rate isn’t deterred by death penalty, but rather, our surroundings. Seeing as how conditions have improved, so has the state of peace. Therefore, it becomes clear that the death penalty is ineffective at deterring crime because other key factors present more possibility for improvement of society. Claim 4: The death penalty is a historically flawed system. Ground 4A: According to the book The Death Penalty: Constitutional Issues, Commentaries, and Case Briefs by Scott Vollum, published in 2005, addresses how the case of the death penalty emerged to where it is today. While the book is now a decade old, it is used for historical context, particularly, in describing the first execution that took place in 1608. While it is true that most of these executions weren’t as well-grounded as the modern ones that take place now, they still had no effect in deterring crime. Why? Because even after America was established and more sane, the death penalty still had to be used because criminals still had violent behaviors. Ground 4B: According to data from Mother Jones, published May 17th, 2013, the reason why the crime rate was so high in the past could possibly be due to yet another environmental factor (affected by change over time), exposure to lead. Since the removal of lead from paint started over a hundred years ago, there has been a decline in homicide. Why is this important? Lead poisoning in child’s brain, if not lethal, can affect development and lead to mental disability, lower IQ, and lack of reasoning. Warrant 4: By examining history as a whole, there is a greater correlation between other factors that have resulted in a decline in violent crime. The decline in the crime rate has been an ongoing process, but has shown a faster decline due to other environmental factors, rather than the instatement of the death penalty. Claim 5: The world’s violent crime rate is changing, but not due to the death penalty. Ground 5A: According to article published by Amnesty USA in March of 2014, the number of executions under the death penalty reported in 2013 had increased by 15%. However, the rate of violent crime in the world has decreased significantly in the last decade. But, Latvia, for example, has permanently banned the death penalty since 2012. In 2014, the country was viewed overall as safe and low in violent crime rate. Ground 5B: However, while it is true that there is a decline in violent crime rate worldwide, The World Bank, April 17, 2013, reports that the rate of global poverty is decreasing. In a similar vein to the US, because wealth is being distributed better and conditions are improving overall, there is a steady decline in crime rate. Warrant 5: By examining the world as a whole, it becomes clear that it doesn’t matter if the death penalty is in place, violent crime will still exist. However, mirroring the US, as simple conditions improve, so does lifestyle. The death penalty does not deter crime in the world, rather a better quality of life is responsible for that.

Fact Debate Brief Introduction Crime doesn’t pay; it should be punished. Even since childhood, a slap on the hand has prevented possible criminals from ever committing the same offense; whether it was successful or not depended on how much that child wanted that cookie. While a slap on the wrist might or might not be an effective deterrent, the same can be said about the death penalty. Every day, somewhere in the world, a criminal is stopped permanently from committing any future costs, but this is by the means of the death. While effective in stopping one person permanently, it does nothing about the crime world as a whole. While it is necessary to end the career of a criminal, no matter what his or her crime is, we must not end it by taking a life. Through this paper, the death penalty will be proven ineffective at deterring crime by use of other environmental factors. Definition: The death penalty is defined as the universal punishment of death as legally applied by a fair court system. It is important for it to be a fair legal system, as not to confuse it with genocide, mob mentality, or any other ruling without trial. Claim 1: Use of the death penalty is in decline Ground 1: According to the book The Death Penalty: A Worldwide Perspective by Roger Hood and Carolyn Hoyle, published Dec. 8th, 2014, the Oxford professors in criminology say “As in most of the rest of the world, the death penalty in the US is in decline and distributed unevenly in frequency of use” even addressing that, as of April 2014, 18 states no longer have a death penalty, and even Oregon and Washington are considering removing their death penalty laws. Furthermore, in 2013, only 9 of these states still retaining the death penalty actually executed someone. Warrant 1: The death penalty can be reinstated at any time, but so far, it hasn’t been. At the same time, more states consider getting rid of it altogether. Therefore, it becomes clear that even states don’t want to be involved with this process showing that this is a disliked process. Claim 2: Even states with death penalty in effect still have high crime rates. Ground 2: With the reports gathered from fbi.gov, lawstreetmedia.com, a website based around political expertise and research determined the ranking of each state based on violent crime, published September 12th, 2014. Of the top ten most violent states, only three of which had the death penalty instituted (Maryland #9, New Mexico #4, Alaska #3). The other seven still had the system in place, and, despite it, still have a high amount of violent crime. On the opposite end of the spectrum, at the bottom ten most violent states, four of which, including the bottom-most states, do not have the death penalty in place. Warrant 2: With this ranking, it literally proves that the death penalty does not deter crime, or that there is a correlation between having the death penalty and having a decrease in the crime rate. Therefore, the idea of death penalty deterring crime is a null term in the sense that there is no, or a flawed connection.

The heavy oxygen isotope (18O) could be provided to plants either in the CO2 or in H2O or in both. Today, we know from experimental results that O2 released from chloroplasts comes from H2O and not from CO2. Which of the following experimental results supports this finding? Select one: When heavy oxygen is part of water given to the plant, the plant produces heavy O2. When heavy oxygen is part of CO2 given to the plant, the plant produces heavy O2. When heavy oxygen is part of both water and CO2 given a plant, the plant produces heavy O2. When no heavy oxygen is part of water given the plant, the plant produces no heavy O2. When no heavy oxygen is part of CO2 given the plant, the plant produces no heavy O2.
