9. a. General Motors (GM) produces trucks with annual fixed costs are $180 million, and its marginal cost per truck is approximately $20,000. Regional demand for the trucks is written as: P = 30,000 ? .1Q, where P =price in dollars and Q =annual sales of trucks.What is GM’s profit- maximizing output level and price, and what is the annual profit generated by the trucks.b. GM has found the elasticity of demand in foreign markets to be EP =?9 for a wide range of prices (between $20,000 and $30,000). The additional cost of shipping (including paying some import fees) is $800 per truck. One manager argues that the foreign price should be set at $800 above the domestic price (in part a) to cover the transportation cost. Is setting it above $800 an optimal price for foreign sales? c. GM also produces an economy version of its truck at a marginal cost of $12,000 per vehicle. But at the price set by GM of $20,000 per truck, customer demand has been very disappointing. GM discontinued production of this model but has an inventory of 18,000 unsold trucks. The best estimate of demand for the remaining trucks is:P = 30,000?Q.Should the price be kept at $20,000 or should it be cut to sell the inventory? If the price is reduced, what price would be good and how many should be sold?

Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Law and Ethics in Nursing Practice. It needs to be at least 2500 words. The refusal of consent to a particular medical treatment, or intervention, is an issue that raises several legal, ethical and moral considerations. The appropriateness of judicial intervention, the patients right to self-determination, the principle of sanctity of life as opposed to the quality of life particularly in terminally ill patients, are all issues which are subject to the ongoing debate. Due to the infinite variety in the circumstances and personal histories of patients, a one-size-fits-all legal and ethical approach is an impossibility. Each case has to be considered on its own, unique merits, with certain underlying principles serving as guidelines. In this case study, the indisputable facts are: Mrs. Col is a resident who is terminally ill with cancer. she is physically and mentally competent at present. she has executed an Advance Care Directive prior to her admission to the retirement village, in consultation with her physician. she has specifically requested no cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the event of her demise. subsequently, the management board has adopted a policy which mandates cardiopulmonary resuscitation in all cases of cardiac arrest, regardless of the patients wishes. In the context of the above scenario, several legal and ethical issues are relevant. Consent or the refusal of consent, to treatment is a fundamental and established law in the United States. The concept of consent is an integral part of the fundamental precept of respect for a persons bodily integrity. The emergence of consent as a medico-legal issue dates back to 1914, in the case of Schloendorff vs. .Society of New York Hospital. Supreme Court Justice Cardozo declared that Every human being of adult years and of sound mind has the right to determine what shall be done with his own body (qtd. in Thula. 2004). Subsequently, the term informed consent entered jurisprudence in 1957, in Salgo vs. Stanford University, in which the court held that a physician violates his duty to his patient and subjects himself to liability if he withholds any facts which are necessary to form the basis of an intelligent consent by the patient to the proposed treatment.

This week you learned about the American Civil War (1861-1865), a conflict that, very simply, was about slavery. However, as President Abraham Lincoln suggests in his famous The Gettysburg Address.pdf, more than slavery was at stake in the Civil War.Consider the following passage from Lincolns The Gettysburg Address:Four score and seven years ago [in 1776] our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. In this passage, Lincoln states that the Civil War is being fought so that the nation might live. In this assignment, please respond to the bolded questions below by 6:00 PM on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Write 2 pages with APA style on Political rhetoric. number Political rhetoric Over the years, rhetoric has been adopted by many political leaders with an aim of informing, motivating or persuading their audiences in a given situation. President Obama has not been an exception since he adopts the figurative language in his speeches to draw attention to the current ideas. This paper outlines the relevance of political rhetoric in the society as used by President Obama in the State of the union speech. It will also outline how republicans responded to Obama in the State of the union speech.There are diverse rhetorical devices that any individual can borrow from President Obamas state of the Union speech in 2013. Given the variations in the economic state of the United States of America, Obama used his annual State of the Union podium to adopt a new trend in his executive authority as the President. The speech entailed rhetoric speech through the use of defiant words such as with or without Congress as an individual step in advancement of the economy. The President also adopted the use of alliteration in a number of paragraphs such as It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country, the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love. These words outline the repetition of words alongside words that soften the attention of the audience. In addition, the president insisted the use of rhetoric using character development by stating. Im eager to work with all of you, But America does not stand still and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, thats what Im going to do (Baker, n.d).At the same time, republicans were not left out in responding to the rhetoric speech of Obama in the state of the Union. The five term congress woman, Cathy McMorris Rodgers rhetorically responded by blaming Obama for the current economic problems. She stated, Too many people are falling further and further behind because, right now, the presidents policies are making peoples lives harder, she said. Republicans have plans to close the gap. Her speech incorporated alliteration as a way of outlining how her 6 year old son, Cole was born with Down syndrome under the Obamas health care program that had many regulations and a record in expenditure (Franke-Ruta, n.d).Obamas speech at the annual State of the Union podium resembles that of Julius Caesar. This is because both leaders adopt an alliteration style of rhetoric in their speeches where they have towering ambitions and show leadership geniuses when addressing the people. Alliteration words add a textual complexity to the speech and engage the audience. In the Roman history, Julius Caesar inspired people to achieve results during war and peace in his speeches. This is the same repetition words that Obama uses to insist the essence of having a stable economy and remake the US Republic during annual State of the Union (Oconnell, n.d). Obamas rhetorical approach was closer to Brutuss speech in act iii at the funeral of Caesar because it entails an appeal to reason and order. This is evident when Obama states, It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few. that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. The Presidents speech does not match that of Anthony because the president did not have a difficult time to change the mind of a crowd that had been convinced by other speeches before he stood to address the people. The presidents case is different from Anthony because Anthony stto to address the people that had been convinced by Brutuss speech (Baker, n.d ).The use of Ethos, Logos and Pathos is evident in Obamas speech during the annual State of the Union podium. Obama states, Hadiyas parents, Nate and Cleo, are in this chamber tonight, along with more than two dozen Americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. They deserve a vote. Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence they deserve a simple vote. This statement shows that the president uses Ethos to convince the audience to develop the economic state of the nation. Also, he uses Logos to persuade the audience on the facts behind economic state of the nation. Pathos shows an appeal of the President to emotion (Talev & Dorning, n.d). During the State of the Union podium, there is no anecdotal evidence or analogy which appeals used by any of the speakers. This is because there was no unreliable sample soft typical case where there was dubious support of claims. The president gave solid evidence towards his speech on the economic state of the United States of America.Work citedBaker, P. In State of the Union Address, Obama Vows to Act Alone on the Economy.
