SSGS 300 Research Proposal Draft about less than lethal force used by police

The instructions for the assignment are below. This will be a rough draft for a research proposal strictly for learning purposes. This will not be submitted to anyone other than the class professor for grading. The proposal needs to be about LESS THAN LETHAL FORCE USED BY POLICE. I have included three peer reviewed sources to use for the assignment. If you use any additional sources, please make sure they are peer reviewed.

Submit your First Draft by no later than Sunday of week 5. Late submissions of this assignment will not be accepted.

Each student will be required to complete the term project, which is a research proposal written in an APA Style. The project should have at least 1000-words of substance not counting the cover and reference page. Please include a Cover Page, an abstract and a list of references. The research proposal you write in this course will NOT be sent to the IRB for approval. This is because you will not be conducting actual research for the purposes of this class. You will however gain an insight as to how to write a research proposal.

Each student will be required to complete a research proposal, as the term project. The research proposal will include the following:

• Title page

• Abstract (100-120 words)

• Introduction

• Hypothesis/Problem Statement/Purpose Statement

• Literature Review and Definitions included in research

• Research methods/design

• References

• Appendices – as needed (annotated bibliography, example consent form, example survey if used)

The research proposal (Term Project) must be in a Word Document (.doc) uploaded to the student’s folder through the assignment section. Students will be required to use at least five scholarly references in their work.

Students are required to follow APA Style guidelines.

Please make sure that you are using the course-writing rubric to use as a checklist so that you write a solid paper.

Students must use a topic, which was approved by the instructor or their research proposal.

Do not include quotes in your work. The student needs to display good critical thinking skills and not a string of quotes written by published authors. Your proposal is what is needed for a successful research project to be conducted in the future.

childhood poverty


Article Analysis

Of major concern to educators and psychologists alike is the relationship of childhood poverty and deprivation on suppressed cognitive development, executive functioning, and attention. Further, recent research suggests that childhood poverty also can play an important role in negative health outcomes and attitudes towards aging that extend into adulthood. Discuss the research of this topic and suggest effective interventions for using childhood as a springboard for promoting healthy aging.

The embedded articleis also found in the SUO library reference:

Wise, P. (2016).  Child poverty and the promise of human capacity: Childhood as a foundation for healthy aging.  Academic Pediatrics (16), S37-S45.

Use the lessons and vocabulary found in the readings. Your responses should clarify your understanding of the topic and should be original and free from plagiarism. Follow APA guidelines for the writing style, spelling and grammar, and citation of sources.

Discussion 2: Later Life Considerations

As more and more of the U.S. and world population ages into old age, it is becoming increasingly critical that societies have a better understanding of what works well and what perhaps does not work so well when considering eldercare. What types of living situations ensure happier and healthier elders? What factors in eldercare may impact working adults and loved ones? What’s the effect of varied living situations on societies and economies as a whole? Finally, what does the way a family or society treat elders say about that family or society in terms of values and belief systems? As you consider these questions, further think about how building your understanding of eldercare might help you not only in your professional work but also how it might impact you on a personal level as well.

For this Discussion, you will explore the advantages and disadvantages of eldercare living. To Prepare

Consider the following: Imagine you are middle-aged and belong to a family where your children are late adolescents. You have two teenage children and two very elderly parents. In some cultures, it is common for elders to live in an independent living community, retirement community, or assisted living communities. In other cultures, elders will come live with an adult child.  By Day 4

Post and describe at least one advantage and one disadvantage of each living arrangement (i.e., independent living, assisted living, and living with an adult child). Note: Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Use proper APA format and citations.

Module 4 SLP


SLP 4 continues with your imaginary company focused on supply chain management

Session Long Project

Continue using your fictitious company from the previous SLPs, and continue to develop the company profile and operating information. This is a very open-ended SLP and it will give you an opportunity to expand you knowledge and also allow creativity in providing the solution to the challenges.

Your company is faced with an increase in demand.

Identify how your company uses forecasting for purposes of capacity planning and how you can utilize productivity, inventory control, and quality improvements to meet this new demand (Operations decisions). Review different kinds of capacity and capacity constraints. How is forecasting used to generate short-term and long-term information about demand that affects capacity? What are some options that the company has in terms of increasing its capacity?

NOTE: in retail businesses with physical locations where customers are served, capacity can be measured in terms of size of the facility and throughout of customers. What is your current Max Possible throughput – how many customers can you serve with your current capacity? Often there is a trade-off in size of the facility for backroom inventory or kitchen, displaying inventory to customers or seating, and customer space such as aisles and checkouts or bar space and waiting areas. You should consider all of these in your capacity analysis

This paper should be approximately 3–5 pages in length counting the introduction, body, and summary. You should include references and cite them properly in the paper. Generally, at least three references should be used.   SLP Assignment Expectations First discuss the recap of your company and add any additional information about it that will add necessary and/or interesting information as background to the discussion of capacity and forecasting. Identify at least two types of capacity and the constraints that act on them now and in the future. Discuss the types of forecasting methods that your company uses. How do they generate short-term and long-term demand forecasts? Determine and discuss some options that the company has in terms of relaxing or eliminating constraints and increasing capacity in the two areas you have identified. Which of these options would you recommend and why? There is no right or wrong response so be creative and use your knowledge to compile the paper.

Read and review all of the references and resources on productivity, processes, inventory, quality, and capacity.

You should look for additional references about the type of business you are operating with specific information about improving capacity and using forecasting.


 In addition, transform your data model (your  EERD created in phase 2 IP) into a logical model, to third normal form.  Describe why each table is in third Normal Form. In your logical data  model identify the primary keys in each table as bolded and underlined  Logical Data Model for the supplied table(Part 1) with a  description of how it moved through UNF to 1NF to 2NF to 3NF and Boyce  Codd. Logical Data Model for Part 2 with a description of how each table is in third normal form. 

Add both parts described to the project template section titled “Database Management Systems.”
