Analysis paper

Choose one of the following two prompts to respond to. In your two follow up posts, respond at least once to each prompt option. Use the discussion topic as a place to ask questions, speculate about answers, and share insights. Be sure to embed and cite your references for any supporting images.Option 1:Given this data set – from the NOAA for Manchester, NH, select a random month between January 1930 and December 1957. Begin with this month and analyze the next 25 data values (i.e. 2 years and 1 month) for the variable “TPCP” (See Second Tab in Data Set for variable descriptions). For example, if May 1955 is chosen as the starting month, then the “TPCP” data would be from May 1955 through May 1957. Using Excel, StatCrunch, etc., construct a histogram to represent your sample. Report the sample mean, median, and standard deviation as a part of your discussion of skewness.Determine the interval for the middle 68% of your sample data and relate this to the sample standard deviation.Comment on the similarities and differences between your sample data and that of your classmates. Why are there differences if the samples are drawn from the same population?Option 2:Suppose a professor splits their class into two groups: students whose last names begin with A-K and students whose last names begin with L-Z. If p1 and p2 represent the proportion of students who have an iPhone by last name, would you be surprised if p1 did not exactly equal p2?If we conclude that the first initial of a student’s last name is NOT related to whether the person owns an iPhone, what assumption are we making about the relationship between these two variables? 1-1 Discussion: Applications of Probability[supanova_question] 05/10/2017 Criminal Justice ResearchAssignment 2: Information Needs of Various Components of the Criminal Justice SystemPrison overcrowding is a major issue in virtually every state and in many municipalities. This is a noted problem nationwide. The reasons are that judges are sentencing more offenders to jails and prisons. State and federal sentencing guidelines have prescribed specific sentencing ranges for various types off offenders and offenses committed. Inmate populations are increasing due to the number of repeat offenders returning to our jails and prison systems. It is a documented fact that at the local, state, and federal levels, prison and jail populations are at an all-time high. The research reported in the National Institute of Justice supports these positions and has the appropriate documentation to support these notions. While there are a great many research studies on the broad subject of prison overcrowding, making use of research findings can be a daunting task. You must consider the information needs of the various components of the criminal justice system:Law EnforcementCourtsCorrectionsJuvenile JusticeHomeland SecurityThe various components of the criminal justice system really do not act independently of one another. The system is directly impacted by each component. For instance, when law enforcement arrests more individuals, the courts now have to hear and decide the cases, which impacts court dockets. Large court dockets mean that there is a backlog of cases but they are eventually heard and decided. Then, convicted offenders are given correctional sentences, ranging from probation, community service, and community corrections to jail and prison time. As a result, eventually our correctional institutions get filled up and become highly overcrowded. In essence, each criminal justice system component has a direct impact on the other parts of the system.Tasks:Locate at least two research articles on the topic of prison overcrowding from either the  or the . The studies do not necessarily have to agree on conclusions or recommendations.Prepare a 3–4 page paper that includes a summary of the research articles and describes how you would present the findings of the studies for each of the five components of the criminal justice system listed above.Be sure to support your recommendations with authoritative sources and cite all references in the APA style.Submission Details:Save the paper as M4_A2_Lastname_Firstname.doc.By Wednesday, May 10, 2017, submit your report to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.Note: This assignment will help you to prepare for your major assignment in Module 5.Assignment 2 Grading CriteriaMaximum PointsPrepared a 3–4 page paper.16Selected at least 2 appropriate research articles.12Provided a clear and cogent analysis of the selected research articles.20Formulated an effective and appropriate method of presentation for each of the five components of the criminal justice system.24Provided appropriate text citations.8Wrote in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrated ethical scholarship in the accurate representation and attribution of sources; and displayed accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.20Total:100[supanova_question]05/27/2017 VictimologyAssignment 1: Examining Intimate ViolenceWoman Beaten, Left for Dead by Ex-HusbandWoman Tells Harrowing Tale of AbuseJuly 23, 2004By all accounts, Teri Jendusa-Nicolai should be dead. The 38-year-old mother of two recalls the assault that nearly ended her life.“I remember clunk, and then I remember kind of coming to and I was on the floor. I kind of got up after that, and he hit me again with the bat. I could just hear the blood in my ears, feel the blood in my hair, and there was blood everywhere.”The man wielding the bat was someone Jendusa-Nicolai once loved, her ex-husband, David Larsen.When she met Larsen, she thought he was quite a catch. He had a good job as an air traffic controller and owned his own home. After a year of dating, the couple married in 1996. But clues about her husband’s violent side began to surface early—on their honeymoon in Hawaii, in fact. After they had what she thought was just a lovers’ quarrel, he hit her several times in the head, she says.Jendusa-Nicolai and Larsen soon started a family. Amanda was born in 1997 and her sister, Holly, two years later.To friends and neighbors they seemed like a happy family, but inside Jendusa-Nicolai was fighting a difficult and private struggle. She says Larsen was unreasonably controlling and volatile.She says she stayed in the relationship, hoping she could change Larsen. But during their three-year-long marriage, police responded to several domestic violence calls at their home.But Jendusa-Nicolai says the effects the violent atmosphere was having on their daughters finally made her decide to leave Larsen in November 1999 and file for divorce. But the judge awarded the couple joint custody of their children.The custody arrangement meant Jendusa-Nicolai was forced to have regular close contact with Larsen, leaving her trapped and feeling the threat of violence was always near.Nevertheless, Jendusa-Nicolai managed to build a new life. She even met the man who would become her next husband, Nick Nicolai, in her church choir. And to remove the fear and danger from her life, she sought sole custody of the girls. Larsen managed to drag out the legal process for four years until last January, when a judge declared there would be no further delays. What no one at the time could predict was what Larsen’s next move would be.On the morning of Jan. 31, just four days after their last court hearing, Jendusa-Nicolai went to pick up her children from Larsen’s home in Wind Lake, Wis., northwest of Racine.That’s when she says the attack happened. Larsen surprised her from behind, she says, striking her at least 10 times in the head with a baseball bat. “I remember him saying, ‘You’re not taking the girls away from me. You always said that I abused you. Now you can see what abuse really is,” she said.She said Larsen was covering her mouth and nose and trying to prevent her from breathing, and then began to bind her with duct tape.“He taped my ankles, taped my wrists, and then he started taping my face, and I just started thinking, Oh no, this is it, I’m not going to be able to breathe.”She decided to breathe shallowly and pretend that she was dead, hoping he would leave her alone.But she says Larsen jammed her, bound, bleeding and barely clothed, into a large garbage bin, which he dragged outside and hid under a tarp in the back of his pickup truck.It was then that Larsen made a crucial mistake—he went inside to get the girls and left his ex-wife alone. While alone in the truck, she manage to break one hand free of the tape and called 911 from a cell phone in the pocket of her light jacket—one of the few garments she had left.The operator could barely understand her, but managed to get the address of Larsen’s home.Jendusa-Nicolai says she could hear the sirens of emergency vehicles coming, but Larsen was already driving away as the vehicles arrived at the house.Police searched Larsen’s house, seeing signs of a struggle and what appeared to be blood. But there was no sign of Jendusa-Nicolai or the girls. With the girls missing, investigators issued a statewide Amber Alert.Jendusa-Nicolai managed to make another call to 911 for help. She told the operator her husband was trying to kill her and that she was in the back of his green Dodge Ram.Larsen eventually stopped at a public storage facility in Wheeling, Ill., about 40 miles south of Racine. Police say he piled boxes on top of the garbage bin he had stuffed his ex-wife into and left it inside a storage unit. He then dropped the kids off at a baby sitter’s home, and at 6 p.m., reported to work at a Wheeling, Ill., airport where police were waiting to arrest him for kidnapping and child abduction.Police say Larsen told them where the children were, and they were found safe at the baby sitter’s house. They also say he pretended to be concerned about his ex-wife. According to a criminal complaint, he later told police he had struck Jendusa-Nicolai with a baseball bat because she suddenly appeared in his home with her pants around her ankles and holding a hammer over him.Inside the storage unit, Jendusa-Nicolai was fighting for her life. She managed to pry up the lid of the garbage bin to get air, but the air she let in was brutally cold.Overnight temperatures were barely above zero, and she was barely clothed.The next morning, police got a break. While checking Larsen’s personal belongings they found a phone number in his wallet for a public storage facility just a mile from the airport where he worked.As they arrived at the storage unit, they could hear Jendusa-Nicolai’s shouts for help.The surgeon who treated Jendusa-Nicolai, Dr. Terri Martin was shocked by the trauma she had suffered. “Her eyes were swollen shut. She was black and blue all over the face . . . she just wasn’t recognizable as a human being,” Martin said.Doctors say her ability to remain coherent was almost miraculous. “She wanted to know about her children, in the condition that she was in, that was totally amazing,” Martin said.But Jendusa-Nicolai was only just beginning to take stock of her terrible losses. She and her new husband had found out the night before the attack that they were expecting a child. Doctors gave her the heartbreaking news that she had miscarried. She also learned she had suffered frostbite, and would have to undergo surgery to remove all of her toes.Five weeks into her hospital stay, and with her ex-husband in a Milwaukee jail, Jendusa-Nicolai was finally awarded sole custody of her daughters.She continues to undergo physical therapy in hopes of one day walking again. Perhaps as amazing as her physical stamina is her positive attitude. When people ask her how she keeps an optimistic outlook, she says she tells them, “I’m alive. My girls are safe. We have our family and he’s where he belongs.”Larsen, who is now in federal custody, has pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping and interstate domestic violence. He faces state charges of attempted homicide, kidnapping and interference with child custody.The state is also considering a charge of first-degree murder for the death of Jendusa-Nicolai’s unborn child.Reference: Woman Beaten, Left for Dead by Ex-Husband.
