On July 20, 2012, 25-year-old James Holmes opened fire in a Denver theater at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and injuring 70 others.
First, compare how classical and positivist criminology theories will explain James’ offense. Keep the focus on what would they consider his motive for the mass killing.
Second, discuss the severity or type of punishment that these two views might consider to fit the crime.
Third, do you think justice was served in this case?
Your response should address all three questions, separated by subheadings. In other words, do not write an essay combining all the three questions into a single narrative.
Week 3, Discussion 1: Identifying and Evaluating Sources
For this discussion topic, you will post four sources that you consider possible sources for your research project. At least two of these should be scholarly journal articles.
For each source, please post your answers to the following:
Provide an APA-style reference citation for the source. Remember that you can use CiteFast if you wish.
What type of document is the source (journal article, news article, government document, etc.), and how can you tell?
When considering the usefulness of this source for your research project, what positive and/or negative features can you identify? Factors you may wish to consider include focus, credibility, detail, and audience.
Optional question: Feel free to comment on what search strategies you employed to find your sources.
Guided response (by Sunday):
This discussion board addresses the interaction among price, demand, and supply in how global markets work. H&M Brand and others face a backlash from China, a major cotton supplier, after expressing concern over the alleged use of forced labor in cotton production.
Review the following article:
Uyghurs: Xinjiang cotton ban is self-defeating, China tells H&M. BBC News.
Would you mind addressing in a presentation format with an accompanying graph how this change in supply impacts the market for H&M Company cotton clothing? Only 5.2% of H&M sales are in China. It is most important to explain the underlying reasons, the impact of cost, price, and supply and demand changes, if any. Your focus is on the market for H&M clothing.
Include an accompanying graph for each of the three situations showing demand, price, and supply before and after the change effected by China.
China tells H&M that it will not profit from sales into China if they don’t buy all its cotton from the Xinjaing Region.
South Carolina, an alternative source of cotton, has a bumper crop of cotton that exceeds the supply from Xinjaing but is much more expensive.
Synthetic material is developed identical to cotton in every way except that the cost is considerably less.
Each original post should include an explanation for each with three diagrams to emphasize the impact on the market for H&M apparel.
With at least two of your peers, compare and contrast your responses.
NOTE: Diagrams can be created using an Office product such as Word or Excel or PowerPoint or some other product of the student’s choice, or drawn by hand and submitted as an image and attached to your discussion board submission.
