Application software

Describe five separate software applications and submit the following information:

Purpose: Describe what features the software application provides, and why you use the software. (Not all
users take advantages of all software features.)

Opinion: Your opinion of the application.

You may use any word format to document your applications, i.e., text or tables.

An application software improves users’ productivity and supports the tasks. Utility software (also known as service program, service routine, tool, or utility routine) is a type of computer software; it is specifically designed to help manage and tune the computer hardware. The operating system, also known as system software, manages the computer—I like to call it the "BOSS" of the computer system. I hope this explanation offers further level of distinctions among software programs.

This assignment consists of two short essay questions. The main intent of these questions is to ensure that you have a sound grasp of the fundamentals of the material presented in this unit. To that end, there is a 3 to 4 page (1000 words) limit for this question. I’m not so concerned with whether you agree with a particular author or not. The quality of your answer is based on your exposition of the competing positions, your comparative analysis of those positions and, lastly, your argument in support of the position you defend. As with all the assignments in this course, these questions are not designed to be a “research” questions. There is no requirement to get material from external sources such as websites like Wikipedia. In fact, doing so can count against you. The point of your essays is to formulate the course material and develop your critical response. You can do this by working with the course material and developing your own ideas about the issue. The essay is simply your opportunity to set that out in paper. So, the material you need to successfully complete this assignment can be found in the online course materials available through the course website. There may also be some reading material that is part of the hard copy course readings package. You can find this information on the course materials section of the course website. Questions: (The total possible mark for this assignment is 100 marks.) 1. In your own words, provide a concise formulation of Utilitarianism. In particular, explain the reasons Bentham and Mill give in support of it. In your own words, provide a concise formulation of Kant’s deontological ethics. In particular, explain the role of the Categorical Imperative in Kantian ethics. In light of the criticisms offered of both accounts, which account is more plausible? Explain why. (70 marks.) 2. Ethical Egoism maintains that one ought to act in accordance with one’s own self-interest. In your own words, provide Rand’s argument in support of Ethical Egoism. Explain Medlin’s response to Rand’s argument. Do you agree with Medlin’s response? Explain why or why not. (30 marks.)

This week’s essay about race will take place in two parts. Below I describe the requirements for the two parts.

 *PART I: For each of the ten articles/videos I sent you on Wednesday, I want you to write a distinct 40-50 word summary of that article/video. In 40-50 words, you must answer the following three questions: (1) What was the topic of the article/video? (2) What arguments (if any) did the article/video advance? (3) Was the article/video persuasive? Why or why not?

To be able to write a succinct summary of this material, you have to absorb it. There is no other way. If you have not carefully read/absorbed the assigned material, that fact will be glaringly obvious to both me and the Teaching Assistants as we grade your papers.

 *PART II: “The way to get rid of racism is to stop talking about it,” so says Morgan Freeman.To what extent do you agree or disagree with Freeman’s assertion? Write 400-500 words stating your position on this matter.

In summary, this week’s essay will take place in two distinct parts. Part I asks you to succinctly summarize (in 40-50 words) each of the ten articles/videos I sent you on Wednesday. Part I will be between 400-500 words. Part II asks you to engage with Morgan Freeman’s provocative statement about racism. Part II will be between 400-500 words.

You must complete both parts. Thus, this week’s essay must be between 800-1000 words in total.
