After reading Lord of the Flies and Anthem, you will write a persuasive essay about the nature of human beings.Today, the majority of experts believe that behavior and development are influenced by both nature and nurture. However, the issue still rages on in many areas. Researchers and experts still debate the degree to which biology and environment influence behavior. William Golding emphasizes that without the rigid rules of society, people are inherently evil and cannot control themselves. Others could argue that people are born good and society itself corrupts them. Using Lord of the Flies and/or Anthem, and other texts listed below, write a persuasive paper in support of one of these theories. Be sure to address counterarguments.

And, the more you use your intelligence, the more developed it becomes.

Analyze Thomas Nagel′s views as presented in his work, ″What does it all mean?″
More specifically, analyze Chapters 2, 6, and 10. For each chapter, you should present the major issue or problem and the main arguments or ideas that Nagel uses in his discussion.
Nagel must be included in your essay by name and as the source of the issues and the different concepts that he introduces.
Each chapter requires its own section heading and within that section you must only discuss that one chapter. Do not mix other chapter information other than for transitional purposes when going from one section to another.
Each section must be two full pages or more in order to receive full credit for that section. A good section is usually three or four pages long. Sections may be longer than four pages.
This essay is one, continuous essay, with no additional spacing to make it longer than it needs to be. That is, do not attempt to begin each chapter on a separate page or points will be deducted.
An Introduction and a Conclusion must be part of this essay. The Introduction establishes your thesis and the Conclusion presents what is to be inferred from the three chapters.
This book is available in print through the bookstore and on Amazon.com. Use any version for this assignment.
Several sites offer a version of this book for free. Search. Also, Google: Thomas Nagel What does it all mean? pdf and might find a copy online of an older version of this text.
For a version of Nagel′s book in Spanish, Google: ″Que significa todo esto?″ Note: Your essay must be written in English. This Spanish translation is provide for Spanish speaking students, if they need the extra assistance.
Overview
Always consider your audience. While writing, assume that you are writing to a critical thinking audience.
You should use original examples to illustrate theories and concepts. These examples should come from sources familiar to you. For example, they may come from your personal experiences, a friend’s experience, or even a movie that you may have personally watched. In explaining an idea that Nagel has introduced you must define it as Nagel does, with or without a quote. Afterwards, you should illustrate this idea using different examples than the ones that Nagel used. In order to demonstrate critical thinking, you MUST USE YOUR OWN EXAMPLES. Thirty percent of the grade for this assignment is based on demonstrating critical thinking skills. If you merely repeat Nagel′s examples, then your grade will be reduced accordingly: the more you use, the lower your grade becomes.
You may compare and contrast different claims, theories, or issues in order to shed light on the main idea of a section. But, do not compare one section to another section, unless it is in the Conclusion.
In this assignment, you are entitled to have your own point of view. Please feel free to share them. In fact, you must present and defend some of your own views in order to receive the highest possible grade.
You should read the sample student essays before beginning to write. These essays give you a fantastic view of successful student essays. They show how previous students were able to successfully complete all three aspects of this assignment: (1) Gordon Rule Grammar Gordon Rule – Alternative Formats ; (2) critical thinking; and (3) philosophical reasoning. Each essay demonstrates a different path to achieving an ″A″ on this assignment. However, there are hundreds of paths to an ″A,″ so, do not attempt to plagiarize these sample essays. Some of the chapters discussed in the sample essays may not be the same as the ones that you are assigned. The purpose of these essays is to illustrate successful approaches and acceptable grammar.
Your essay must be original in order to receive Gordon Rule credit. For it to be original, you must write 80% of the essay that you submit. This means that 80% of the total number of words submitted must be your own sentences and paragraphs. In other words, only 20% of the total number of words submitted may be quotes.
Format
There is a minimum number of pages that must be submitted in order to receive full credit. The reason for this is that writing is intellectual work: the more you write, the more you use your intelligence. And, the more you use your intelligence, the more developed it becomes. This course is designed to develop your critical thinking skills and this can only occur if you use your intelligence. The minimum number of pages for this assignment is eight pages: Introduction (1/2 page), Chapter 2 (2 pages), Chapter 6 (2 pages), Chapter 10 (2 pages), and the Conclusion (1/2 page), and the Reference Page (On a separate page). Note: Most essays that earn an ″A″ are more than eight pages because analyzing the chapters usually takes more than two pages. Yes, you may submit more than eight pages without any penalty.
Each chapter represents a new section and requires a unique title inspired by the original chapter title. Italicize or bold section titles. Center section titles.
Do not compare material from one section with material from another section. In other words, when writing on a Chapter, focus only on that chapter. However, one may and should use appropriate transition sentences between sections. Why this prohibition? Well this essay is a writing project that is being graded for Gordon Rule credit. You must write on all three chapters or you will fail this assignment because Gordon Rule requires that you submit three independent writing samples. This means that each section must have its own Section Title and must contain a discussion about only one chapter at a time. You should use the Introduction and/or Conclusion to compare and contrast ideas between chapters.
Include your full name ONLY at the top of the first page of the essay. No other labeling, such as course name, date and time of submission, is required nor should be used.
Essays should use a limited amount of quotes. Quotes should not be splices, but presented only if they are to be analyzed and discussed within the context of the paper. Essays are penalized for using quotes to expand their length unnecessarily. In any case, essays are limited to the use of up to 20% quotes. This number will be determined by Turnitin.com.
Essays must be typed and double-spaced. Recommended font: “Times” with a font size of 12. Do not use all caps, all cursive, all italic, or all bold as the general format of this project.

Reference Page

This essay requires a reference page that lists your sources. Points will be deducted if it is missing (-15).
In order to create a sense of objectivity, you need to research how other philosophers define and explain some of the central ideas that Nagel introduces. For example, if the chapter that you are discussing is dealing with the idea of whether or not we have freewill, then you could do some additional research on how other philosophers define freewill and also how the try to resolve the central problems. You do not need to quote these people, but you should list them as something that you read that helped formed your understanding of Nagel.
One of your references must be the Nagel text, ″What does it all mean?″ If it is missing, then you will have points deducted (-5). However, you do not need to quote Nagel in your writing project.
Each chapter must have one additional reference source. However, you may have more than one additional source for each chapter.
Essays should use MLA style guidelines for documentation of material, quotes, and presenting its references.

Grammar (Mechanics)

Essays are graded for grammar in accordance with the College′s Gordon Rule Rubric Gordon Rule – Alternative Formats , which is provided as a separate file for students to review prior to writing their essay.
Failing to use quotation marks when necessary: -5% per incident
Completely failing to include a list of references: -15% (If some references are missing, then this penalty will be adjusted accordingly.)
Using only Nagel as the reference: -10% (Remember, four sources are required and Nagel is only of these sources.)
Paragraphs not properly marked off with indentation (one paragraph essays): -100%, because this violates the fundamental idea of an essay. An essay must contain more than one paragraph. The smallest essay is three paragraphs and a college level essay should be five paragraphs. A five paragraph essay has an introduction, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Each Chapter in this writing project is to be presented as an independent essay. This means that if one of the Sections is written with only one paragraph, then the entire project will receive a grade of 0%.
Single spaced essays: -10%
Triple spaced essays: -10%
Essays that use all capital letters, italics, or boldface type setting: -10%
Essays are submitted through Blackboard. Then, Blackboard submits them through Turnitin.com.

For the sake of this course, an essay is judged as original if it contains 80% of a student′s own words, which means essays may contain up to 20% quotes. Essays containing more than 20% quotes maybe rejected and penalized 100% of its possible grade.
Critical Thinking
Essays are evaluated for the logical manner in which they are written: their rational structure.
Essays are evaluated for the way they introduce the topic of analysis: Nagel′s three views. A clearly stated or implied thesis should be used.
Essays are evaluated for the number and type of original examples that are used to illustrate and clarify concepts and theories.
Essays are evaluated for the objective, rational approach that is used to present Nagel′s views.
Essays are evaluated for their length. Writing requires the use of one′s brain and so is a good way to demonstrate critical thinking skills. Seven content pages are required and one reference page is required. However, essays may contain much more than seven content pages.
Failing to write to a general introduction to the project: -5%
Failing to write to a general conclusion to the project: -5%
Submitting only six content pages: -15%
Submitting only five content pages: -30%
Submitting four or less content pages: submission not graded, -100%
Failing to submit a reference page: -15%
Essays are evaluated for coherence. They must be legible. This evaluation is based on the view that if an average college educated reader cannot understand an essay then it is to be judged as incoherent. Essays are penalized if they are difficult to read or follow (for whatever reason). (-5% to -100%)
Essays are graded for their originality. This means that they should contain as few quotes as possible. It is perfectly fine to not use any quotes in writing this essay. In addition, ″being original″ means that the essay must not be plagiarized. If Turnitin.com identifies an essay as containing 30% or more matching material it will be treated as plagiarized and not graded. Rewriting and resubmitting an essay that was designated as plagiarized is penalized -30%. And and an essay that has an Originality Report from Turnitin.com that is between 21% and 29% will be graded; however, it will be penalized -5% or -10% depending on the amount of matching material.

The target customer audience is driven to purchase well above average quality furniture and is willing to pay a slight premium price to acquire the limited edition pieces.

Landon Enterprises, Inc. manufactures and sells solid and veneered wood furniture. The target customer audience is driven to purchase well above average quality furniture and is willing to pay a slight premium price
to acquire the limited edition pieces. The firm is concerned that weakening economic conditions may cause a temporary decline in sales growth, profits, and cash flow even though the target
audience may be slightly less
affected than the population as a whole. Landon is considering expansion to an International Market to develop a more effective sales appeal to the International Buyer.
You are being asked to wear the hat of a member of an employee team that has been tasked with evaluating the expected outcomes from various cost structure and pricing changes associated with the anticipated international expansion. The BOD is interested in the financial forecast for the next three years to include an
annual forecast of Sales, Total Variable and Fixed Costs, Net Operating Income, and the breakeven point in sales revenue. Forecasting the future is certainly no exact science but it must take place to begin any evaluation process.
An income statement and a balance sheet for the year ended and as of December 31, 2022 are presented on page 3 of this document. The key ratio values (e.g. contribution margin ratio) have held steady for the past
three years or so but are expected to change in the coming years. Specifically, the following “moving forward” values are expected (forecasted) by senior management of Landon.
You will use the initial forecasts for the first pass of your forecasting model.
1. The variable cost ratio is expected to increase to 65% for each of the next three years (2023, 2024, 2025) whether the expansion occurs or not. This increase is driven primarily by the growing cost of skilled craftsman labor and the rising cost of the specialized woods necessary to build the premium products. Landon will attempt to offset these rising costs by developing an International sales presence that they hope will allow for modest price increases and greater volume over which to spread
the higher fixed costs. As a first pass, use the 65% expected variable cost ratio for the three year planning period (2023,2024,2025)

2. Fixed operating costs (excluding depreciation) are expected to increase by $200,000 in 2023 and then 6% annually for each of the next two years (2024 and 2025) if the international expansion occurs and 4% annually from the 2022 amount if it does not occur.
3. New capital asset additions are expected to be depreciated over a blended life of 10 years. The firm
uses the straight line method of depreciation. Use 2022 depreciation expense as the base amount that will continue over the next three years increased by additional depreciation on any new capital asset additions (depreciate over the 10 year blended life) if International expansion takes place. Assume that any new capital additions occur at the beginning of 2023. Use a full year of depreciation each year (no partial year in 2023).
4. The blended interest rate on borrowed funds (above the existing 12/31/2022 amount) is expected to be 8%. The 8% applies only to additional debt financing. The existing debt financing remains at 6% annually on interest bearing debt.
5. Management expects the income tax rate to remain steady at 30%. The BOD is considering an expansion to the asset base of $3,000,000. Approximately $2,000,000 will be in additional fixed assets (subject to depreciation) and approximately $1,000,000 in current assets (primarily inventory and AR).
If expansion takes place, the expanded asset base is expected to increase sales by 20%
annually. If the expansion is not undertaken, sales are expected to increase by 8% annually. Management is considering three different financing options to fund the expansion.
(1) Issue $3,000,000 of new interest bearing debt (8%)
(2) Issue $3,000,000 of new common stock at a market price of $30 per share.
(3) Issue a 50/50 mix of new debt (8%) and new common stock ($30 per share). The BOD needs your expertise to help it determine the likely financial outcomes if expansion does not take place and if it does take place under the various financing options. Specifically the BOD wants you to deliver the following within your report:
(1) Using MS Excel to present your model, prepare forecasted income statements for the next three years (2023, 2024, 2025) assuming that the expansion does not take place. For each year present the forecasted income statement, the breakeven point (treat interest expense as a fixed cost for the purpose of the breakeven calculation), the earnings per share, the expected dividends per share, and
the forecasted stock price given the P/E guidelines presented above. Create an effective MS Excel model (landscape) that shows 2022 (the actual values), 2023, 2024, and 2025 (forecasted values).

(2) Using an MS Excel to present your model, prepare forecasted income statements (not the balance sheets) for the next three years, under each financing option, assuming that the expansion does take place. Use the 2022 (actual), 2023, 2024, 2025 (forecasted) landscape format that you have in place.
As you did above, present the forecasted income statement and the breakeven point (treating interest expense as a fixed cost) for each year.

(3) Prepare approximately 3 pages of commentary in which you provide analysis and reflection upon the BOD’s potential actions (to do or not do the expansion). I want an efficient comprehensive reflection on the key outcomes that your forecasts present. Your analysis / reflection should address quantitative and qualitative factors. Be sure to include reflection upon the “risk” of the various decisions and
related outcomes.
(4) Begin your report with an intro to the BOD of the proposed expansion and key assumptions. Reference key results presented in your forecast models. The MS Excel Model needs to be a separate attachment to the report. One MS Word file with intro / commentary / conclusion and one MS Excel file (either multiple pages or I’m fine with one large page if sent electronically). Only one MS Excel file is permitted.
I’m looking for a very effectively designed format. Your name must appear on the MS Word document and the MS Excel document. Presentation does impact the grade for the project. A condensed income statement for 2022 Actual results are as follows:
Sales: $7,000,000
Variable Cost: 4,200,000 (Production labor and materials)
Contribution Margin: 2,800,000
Fixed Operating Costs: 1,300,000 Excludes Depreciation
Depreciation Expense: 300,000
EBIT: 1,200,000
Interest: 180,000 (6% on interest bearing debt)
EBT: 1,020,000
