Use words that would describe the character traits illustrated like bold, coy, aloof, authoritarian, respected, dismissive etc. Find a picture of that character to display with your discussion post. b.

Q4 Pick one real-life example (it doesn’t have to be your own personal example, but it can be) of behavior that seems to reflect cognitive dissonance. Speculate as to what you believe the person’s deeply entrenched belief or attitude was and then describe the inconsistent or incompatible behavior. If you were inside that person’s head, what could have been the dissonant cognition’s he/she was likely having: Imagine a thought bubble above that person’s head: what would it say? Finally, how could the cognitive dissonance be resolved? If it could not be resolved, why not?

Q5 What do you think is the most challenging change/s in physical, cognitive, social or emotional development that occur in in late adulthood? What approaches would you recommend to alleviate some of the impact of these changes? If you believe that the changes are inevitable, why do you hold that belief? Q6 Part One: 1. Watch this Bugs Bunny cartoon called ” Rabbit Season.” As you watch this nearly 2 and half minute video, count the number of violent acts that you witness in the video. 2. Make an initial post telling the class about how many acts of violence you counted during the video. After stating your witnessed number, explain what you considered a violent act in the video. 3. Keeping in mind your answers above, provide a definition for violence that should be used when watching the video. 4. The likelihood is that we will have many different numbers for the acts of violence that each of us witnessed during the video. Considering that the likelihood is that we will see different counts in the class, this means that we may have different ideas and definitions for what we consider violent acts. This also means that if we are using different definitions for key elements of a given research question, we would not have high inter-rater reliability. So, what does that inform us about the types of research we have been learning about throughout this class? Part Two: 1. create a new research question that you create for the purpose of this week’s discussion, how would you define the various variables that would be used in your research question? How would this definition help researchers maintain high inter-rater reliability when conducting research? Q7 Part I This discussion asks you to examine the requirements for a search warrant and the exceptions to needing a warrant. The Fourth Amendment protects individuals against unreasonable searches of their property and persons. It also prevents law enforcement from making unlawful arrests/seizures. It requires that all searches be reasonable. Please thoroughly discuss when a search warrant is needed by law enforcement and the requirements that must be demonstrated to a judge or magistrate to have the warrant issued. Include the various exceptions to the search warrant requirement. Part II Using the facts provided to you in the Week One discussion, answer the following questions : 1) Was the arrest of Mayo a legal arrest? Discuss why. Please include the components of a reasonable arrest and whether or not they were met with Mayo. Did law enforcement need an arrest warrant prior to arresting Mayo? Make sure to support your thoughts with legal reason. 2) Can law enforcement seize the broken beer bottle and the gun without a search warrant? Why? Q8 Affirmative defenses fall under the categories of justification and excuse. Answer these questions: 1) Discuss the legal and practical differences between a justification and an excuse. 2) What is needed for an insanity plea to be approved by the courts? Give an example of a case that was approved for the insanity plea and the requisites behind that decision. 3) After Bill was arrested for robbery, his mental condition went from functioning to nonfunctioning. He no longer can help his lawyer defend him because he is no longer competent. What defense, if any, does Bill have to the charge of robbery? Will he be successful? 4) How did conducting research and going through each step of legal analysis help you to reach this conclusion? Analyze how you applied critical thinking and legal analytical skills to assist you in this regard. What new research and/or analytical tool or method did you try for the first time this week? What do you think you do well and what would you like to strengthen so that you continue to improve? 5) Collaborate with each other as the week goes on to make all aspects of this Discussion as robust as possible.
