An argument considered in this unit is that the Western dichotomy of Nature and Culture has, in part, caused the ecological crisis we are currently experiencing. Describe this argument and consider its strengths and weaknesses, paying careful attention to draw on the role of anthropocentrism in your analysis.
Explore the psyche of the two narrators in “Ulalume” & “Annabel Lee”. Formulate an opinion about the two narrators in the poems. Consider things like: “What are some of the reasons for the narrators’ laments and current state?” “Is it unconscious grievance or even mental
illness that drives the narrator of Ulalume to visit the grave site of his love one?” “What are
the distinct similarities between the two narrators?” State a thesis that can be supported
by pointing to the poems. Remember to listen along on Youtube

Create a 9-slide presentation in which you analyze cost accounting practices to make a recommendation about whether or not to accept a purchase offer at a lower price than normal. You may either record the presentation or write a 2-3 page supporting report.
The Acme Pickle Company has distributed pickles under the “Florida’s Best” brand for eight years from its production facility in Jacksonville, Florida. It sells the pickles to stores in the southeastern United States. Acme normally produces between 8,000 and 10,000 cases of pickles a month but has the capacity to produce 12,000 cases without adding equipment or personnel.
The owner of a twenty-store supermarket chain in Wisconsin, called Super Deals, visits friends in Florida and is impressed with the quality of “Florida’s Best” pickles. He approaches you, an Acme Pickle account manager, with an offer to buy 2,000 cases of pickles to use in a special promotion at his stores. He is thinking of something such as:
“Free jar of Florida’s Best pickles with every purchase of forty dollars or more—this month only!”
He offers Acme a price of $9.50 per case, knowing that it is a very substantial discount from the normal selling price of $20 a case. Acme’s management is inclined to turn the offer down, because their cost is calculated at $10.00 a case. They believe they would lose money if they sold at $9.50 a case. You, on the other hand, believe that some errors have been made in the cost accounting.
You are the account manager for Acme Pickles.
Your analysis for the Controller and Sales Manager is needed to suggest a different way of calculating the pricing of the pickles that may be lower. As part of your analysis, address the following items:
Explain why some production costs are variable and some are fixed.
Analyze the benefit of recalculating the cost of pickle production.
How would you recalculate it?
What would the result be?
What is the benefit to the company of recalculating the cost?
Analyze how financial accounting of production cost differs from managerial accounting of production cost.
Explain the difference between the two accounting methods.
Identify the benefits and drawbacks of each method.
Recommend a plan of action to management regarding Super Deals’ offer.
Below is the cost report for a recent month. In this month, Acme produced 9,000 cases and sold them at $20 per case, which is Acme’s normal selling price. Nine thousand cases are well beyond Acme’s break-even point, enabling Acme to record a substantial profit at the nine-thousand-case level.

Your team lead wants to share this analysis across remote locations of the organization and is hoping you will set the standard for how analyses and decisions of this type should be presented and supported. Your team has requested either a recorded presentation (including slides and notes) or a presentation and supporting reporting that can be distributed as a model. Prepare a presentation of at least 9 slides using PowerPoint or software of your choice detailing your recommendation and the information you used to make your recommendation. You can either record the presentation or prepare a separate report supporting the presentation.
If you choose to record your presentation, you may use Capella-supported Kaltura Media or another technology of your choice that produces a shareable URL. Kaltura is recording software that can be used to create webcam, screen, and audio recordings. Refer to the MBA Program Resources for the Using Kaltura tutorial to prepare for this option. If you choose to use something other than Kaltura Media, ensure that it creates a shareable URL and can be embedded in the courseroom to ensure faculty can access your recording.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in these activities, please contact DisabilityServices@Capella.edu to request accommodations.
Create at least 9 slides detailing your recommendation and the information you used to make your recommendation.
Include additional details as slide notes.
Supporting information. Choose one of the following options:
Record your presentation.
Create a 2–3 page report to support your slides.
Related company standards:
The recommendation report is a professional document and should therefore follow the corresponding MBA Academic and Professional Document Guidelines, including single-spaced paragraphs.
In addition to the presentation or report materials, include:
Title (slide or page).
References (slide or page).
Appendix with supporting materials.
At least two APA-formatted references.

Internal and External Criticism.
It is crucial to determine if a theory can be modified for use in research. Middle-range ideas are evaluated using a variety of internal and external critiques. Internal complaints focus on the theory’s internal structure and how well it meets the criteria for a good theory. External criticisms focus on the theory’s ability to account for data and its potential to be used in research. Both types of objections can be valuable. Internal complaints help to ensure that a theory is adequate and meets the criteria for a good theory. External criticisms help to ensure that a theory is practical and that it can be used in research.
One of the most critical decisions a scientist makes is when to accept a theory as applying to their research. Many factors are considered when making this judgment, including internal and external criticism. Internal criticism is typically used to test whether a theory is internally consistent (McEwen & Wills, 2014). It can be done by looking for inconsistencies within the theory or by testing it against data it was not designed to account for. If the theory is inconsistent, it may be rejected as a viable candidate for research. External criticism tests whether a theory applies to the real world. The theory must account for observed data and predictions that can be made based on that data. If the theory cannot be verified, it may be rejected as a viable candidate for research.
The evaluation of middle-range ideas is based on both internal and external critique. A middle-range theory can address both internal and external criticism. Middle-range theories are typically more applicable to research than theories that can account for only one type of criticism (Mgbekem et al., 2016). Middle-range ideas are important because they allow scientists to test their theories against real-world data. It enables them to make predictions about how the real world will behave. If a theory can account for internal and external criticism, it is likely to be a viable candidate for research.
Middle-range theories are evaluated using both internal and external criticism. Internal criticism measures how well the approach matches data and how well it can be extended. External criticism estimates how well the theory is proposed, how well it is explained, and how well it can be applied. Middle-range theories can be judged based on these four criteria.
