Discuss whether targeting the children of well- connected political or business leaders is ethical.

Learning Engagement #4
TOPIC:
The role of family connection and the so-called gene advantage is a well-known phenomenon in human history even though most countries, especially the USA, such practices might be considered bribery under federal law. In this week’s learning engagement after carefully studying the Case called It’s All in the Family (page 274), please answer the following questions from your perspectives:
Explain why it is or is not a good practice to consider the connections a job applicant might have that could enhance an employer’s business portfolio.
Discuss whether targeting the children of well- connected political or business leaders is ethical.
Imagine that you are the Chief HR Officer for a company considering doing business in China. You have been informed that many of your competitors have implemented programs to hire the sons and daughters of influential Chinese leaders. What advice do you give to your executive leadership team? Whose interests would be most important in your policy decision?
Make sure you look into available scholarly references to support your opinion. Also in your replies analyze your chosen post from a critical point of view.
PROFESSOR’S GUIDANCE FOR THIS WEEK’S LE:
You have heard the term quid pro quo to win elections quite often in former President Trump’s impeachment. Guess what, the same charges were brought up against JPMorgan Chase’s hiring practices in China and costly punishment had been handed down to those involved. I would like you to research this and similar cases and share with us your opinion and findings.

Explain what types of visuals would be most effective for your article and why.

This week we are discussing visual elements in technical writing. A visual is any pictorial representation that is used by the writer to clarify, explain, and/or support an idea.
There is a wide variety of visuals, which are effective for different purposes. They can be divided in two major categories, functional and motivational.
Functional – Used to support or enhance an understanding of a topic. They can be subdivided into four categories.
Graphs – used to show relationships and patterns over time
Charts – used to represent parts of a whole or relationships
Tables – used to display and organize large amount of data, usually numerical
Illustrations – used to show how something looks or works
Motivational – used only to get the reader’s attention and motivate him/her to read the document by making it more visually attractive. They can be anything from text formatting to stunning images.
For your discussion this week, select a news or magazine article with NO VISUAL ELEMENTS. Include a link to the article in your post. Explain what types of visuals would be most effective for your article and why. Make sure you justify your opinion. 200 – 300 words.

explicate one poem or song of your own choosing. You must provide the text of the poem along with a reference showing where it came from. If you choose a poem in a different language, be sure to provide a translation.
Focus on the poem’s themes, but be sure to describe how the writer has worked the theme into the text. What is the dramatic situation in the text? Who is the speaker? Has the poet used powerful figurative language? What other poetic techniques are used to convey any important ideas or emotions? How has the poet used sounds and sound effects like assonance, consonance, alliteration, rhyming? How well did these techniques work for you as a reader? For a poem that originally appeared in another language, feel free to use any expertise you have in that language to explain the use of sound by the poet.
The evaluation criteria for Essay 2 are spelled out in the Explication Essay Rubric below. I strongly recommend that you use the Rubric and check out the criteria to evaluate your efforts before turning in your final publish.
Explication essays tend to run short, so aim for an essay between 600 and 900 words, or 2.5 to 3.5 pages (excluding any appendix providing the text of a new poem or song).

Please provide your in-depth interpretation and analysis on the questions (at least 100 words per Discussion question #1, #2, and #3). Please try to include textual evidence (direct quotes along with the Act and Scene #) in your answer.
When you need to summarize the plot, please do not copy words/sentences from the text. You should briefly summarize/paraphrase the plot in your own words.
Note: MLA in-text citation for play (e.g.) (1.5.71-72) – This means the quote is from Act 1, scene 1, lines 71-2. (*I put the page number for our convenience.)
***ANSWERS FOR QUESTIONS 1-3 CAN BE FOUND IN READINGS (ACT 1 & 2)***
1.
Madame Pernelle describes Orgon’s house as “a madhouse with the keeper gone” (Act 1. Scene1. Line 11, p. 21). Why is she calling her son’s house this way? What does she think of Elmire, Mariane, and Damis? What is the major tension between Pernelle and other family members (except Orgon)? Why does she think highly of Tartuffe? Why do Damis and Dorine dislike Tartuffe? Why did Orgon take Tartuffe to his house? What does Orgon think of Tartuffe?
2.
What does Tartuffe do in Orgon’s house? Who is Cleante and what does he think of Tartuffe? Cleante tells Orgon: “[T]hose who hearts are truly pure and lowly/ Don’t make a flashy show of being holy” (1.5. 71-72, p. 28). What is Cleante trying to say here? Cleante tells Orgon: “While your praise of him[Tartuffe] is quite sincere, I think that you’ve been dreadfully deluded” (1.5. 148-49, p. 30). Why does Orgon disbelieve Cleante’s view of Tartuffe? Is Orgon deceived by Tartuffe, or is he foolish and lacking good judgment? (at least 100 words for Question #2)
3.
Why does Damis think Tartuffe is against Mariane’s marriage to Valere? If so, are there any motives behind Tartuffe’s meddling in Mariane’s wedding? Why do you think Orgon has a firm belief in Tartuffe? Orgon tells Mariane, “And he’s to be your husband, is that clear? It’s a father’s privilege…” (2.1. 29-30, p. 32). What do you make of Orgon’s decision to marry off his daughter to Tartuffe? Is he abusing his patriarchal power or does he genuinely believe that her marriage to Tartuffe will be good for her? Dorine, who is a maid to Mariane, has no hesitation in giving her opinion about Tartuffe, and she questions Orgon’s view of Tartuffe. How would you describe the character, Dorine? Why do you think Moliere depicts her this way? Why is Mariane unable to oppose her father Orgon’s decision regarding her marriage? Is Mariane afraid of challenging the societal norm of women/daughters or is she afraid of disobeying her father’s authority?

• An explanation of the thesis of the work. (What is its main argument?)
• A key example. (What is the most convincing example that the work uses to make its point? How does it explain the example? How does it analyze this example?)
• A review of subordinate points
• Finally, a list of keywords.
