Kladimir Gav Butin (KGB), a Russian citizen studying history and political theory at George Washington University, is still bitter about the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Determined to take down the United States, KGB sends an email to a friend of his who works for the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (which conducts much of Russian’s foreign intelligence operations). Before coming to the US, KGB and his friend would often talk about doing everything in their power to destroy the United States. In his email, KGB offers, on behalf of Russia, to steal classified information of the U.S. government. The friend simply responded “Great.” Excited, KBG asks his girlfriend, who works for the CIA, to provide him classified information relating to the U.S.’s dealings with Russia since the 2014 Crimean crisis. When the girlfriend refused, KGB took the girlfriend’s security badge, snuck into the CIA building, stole a classified file relating to actions taken by the U.S. government against Russia post Crimea, and emailed the information to his friend. Unknown to KGB, the CIA has the entire incident on camera, in which it was able, to a 50% match, identify KGB as the likely culprit.The CIA alerts the Department of Justice Counter Espionage section, which handles all espionage prosecutions, of the incident, and together the CIA and Counter Espionage section—through the Attorney General—file a FISA application with the FISC to wiretap KGB’s phone and review all his emails. The application states that KBG is a Russian citizen studying in the United States and that the government wants to place a wiretap on KGB’s cell phone and review KGB’s email account, RussiaKillsTheUS@gmail.com. In addition, the application outlines the break-in of the CIA office and the 50% likelihood of KGB being the culprit, and further states that “the surveillance is needed to gain additional evidence to determine whether to prosecute KGB for espionage”; the application further states that the government “wants to determine where KGB (or whomever the culprit is) is sending the classified information, considering that the information he stole related to classified intelligence information about Russia.”Review chapters 20 and 21, including the statutory definitions of key terms in FISA outlined in Rosen. You are a clerk for FISC Judge Boller. He asks you to make a legal outline that outlines the relevant law and analyzes whether he should approve the application to conduct electronic surveillance of KGB according to the state of law (1) before the Patriot Act was passed and In Re Sealed Cases was decided and (2) after the Patriot Act was passed and In re Sealed Cases was decided.
The Outline should be organized based on the questions asked and should have headings that clearly walk through each step of the analysis. Indicate the applicable legal rules by typing, “Rule:” before the rule. Do the same for “Analysis” and “Conclusion.” The outline need not be in complete sentences; bullet points are preferred. Be concise but thorough.

Based on interviews with Annie’s parents and direct observation in Annie’s home and school, the first behavior to target is skin picking. When Annie picks her skin, she uses the forefinger of one hand to scratch and dig at the skin of her arms and legs. She has only been observed to pick at the skin on her arms and legs. The behavior occurs mostly during down times: while waiting, while watching television, while in her bedroom alone. A brief functional analysis was conducted and revealed that skin picking never occurred during attention, escape, or tangible conditions. The behavior only occurred during alone conditions.
The second issue of concern identified by the parents and confirmed via observation is Annie’s lack of functional speech. After consulting with Annie’s speech pathologist, it was determined that Annie is capable of vocal speech. She echoes simple words spoken by others and has a strong echoic repertoire of one-syllable words. She does not currently use vocal speech to get her needs and wants met or to identify things in her environment. During the observation, there were multiple occurrences of Annie pulling her mother and father into the kitchen and pointing at the refrigerator. If her parents did not guess what she wanted in the first or second try, Annie would jump up and down and start screaming, getting louder and louder until her parents guessed correctly. This episode went on for as long as 10-15 minutes. The episodes ended only when her parents correctly guessed the item she wanted.
Her parents report that Annie’s favorite foods are pretzels, raisins, cheese crackers, apples, and grapes. They said that they can get her to “do almost anything” for some grapes. She also likes to drink chocolate milk and apple juice. For fun, she plays with toys and watches television. Her favorite toys are little animals and little dolls (she collects them), tiny furniture. Her parents report that Annie loves “tiny” things. When she watches television, she usually watches Teen Titans Go or Littlest Pet Shop. She has an iPad her parents control her access to. She sometimes watches YouTube videos on her iPad. She also enjoys swimming and swinging outside.
Parent/Guardian Name(s): Juan and Maria Rodriguez
Client name: Annabelle “Annie” Rodriguez
Client Age: 7 Gender: Female
Current diagnoses: Moderate Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder, GERD
Brief description of behaviors of concern: Annie’s most frequent and most worrisome behavior is skin picking. She picks at her skin using her fingers and creates open sores on her arms and legs. At any given time, she has several open sores on her body. This has led to skin infections in the past. She often does this when she is watching television or alone in her room.
The second concern is her lack of speech. She is able to repeat words she hears others say, but does not initiate communication on her own. If she gets frustrated, she will jump up and down and scream until someone figures out what it is she wants. She usually leads people around the house and points at things if she wants something. It is getting harder and harder to understand what she wants.
Assessment for the behaviors identified in the referral (See Referral Formhttps://kapextmediassl-a.akamaihd.net/artsSCi/PS365/PS365_1807D/PS365_ReferralForm.docx and Brief Summary of the Functional Behavior Assessment (https://kapextmediassl-a.akamaihd.net/artsSCi/PS365/PS365_1807D/PS365_BriefSummaryFBA.docx)
You are ready to begin your intervention plan, but you need to get the parents’ approval first. In a meeting with the parents, you describe your behavior intervention plan and provide a rationale for your intervention choices.
Behavior Excess for Decrease: Skin Picking
Operationally Define the target behavior by writing a 1–2 sentence that meets all of the following criteria:
Passes the “Dead Man’s” test and the “stranger” test
Uses no labels or hypothetical constructs
Explain the difference between habit behaviors and behaviors controlled by social reinforcers. Include examples.
Explain how you plan to implement all four components of habit reversal with Annie. Include a specific competing response.
Explain why you expect this procedure to be effective, including a description of the applicable behavioral principles that explain why habit procedures work to reduce habit behaviors.
Including a description of the applicable behavioral principles that explain why habit procedures work to reduce habit behaviors.
Behavior Deficits for Increase: The Mand and the Tact
Begin by explaining to the parents the difference between the behavioral view of language and the cognitive view of language.
Accurately represent the behavioral view of how language is learned.
Define the two verbal operants you plan to teach, i.e., the mand and the tact.
Clearly differentiate between the two by providing examples for the parents. Your definitions should include the controlling antecedents and consequences for each verbal operant.
Identify which verbal operant you will teach first and explain your rationale for this choice.
Explain your procedures for teaching each verbal operant. Include details of what a typical teaching session would look like.
In your description of how you will teach a mand, identify:
A specific mand to teach
How you will set up the relevant motivating operation
A description of how you will use shaping to teach the new verbal operant
Include how you will prompt and differentially reinforce the mand (identifying the reinforcement to be used).
How you will fade your prompts
In your description of how you will teach a tact, identify:
A specific tact to teach
How you will set up the relevant discriminative stimuli
A description of how you will use shaping to teach the new verbal operant
Include how you will prompt and differentially reinforce the tact (identifying the reinforcement to be used).
How you will fade your prompts

1. Modify the payroll program in the weekly module to add overtime and write a Visual logic program or a flow diagram for it.
2. Write a Visual logic program that creates a ***** answer sheet using a nested loop as shown in fig. 4.5. Instead of using a constant, the program may ask the user how many parts in the *** and how many questions in each part.
It is critical to carry out the duties that you took an oath to do but an individual religious rights should respected as well because a person that believes that same sex is a sin or an abomination due to their Christian beliefs then that person should not be punished but instead be shown understanding and exemption to the Prohibitions Against Wrongdoing And Removal From Office which states that a County judges/executive, justices of the peace, sheriffs, coroners, surveyors, jailers, property valuation administrators, county attorneys, and constables are subject to indictment or prosecution for misfeasance, malfeasance, or willful neglect of duty during their terms in office. Statutes prescribe the manner of indictment and prosecution.
Is it ever acceptable to allow personal convictions or beliefs to overrule an organization’s mission? One should never let their personal beliefs conflict with an organizations mission and that is to uphold all duties sworn to serve, so therefore there is never an acceptable time to allow personal convictions or beliefs to overrule an organization’s mission but there should be an exception in the manner of same sex marriages even though that person took an oath to uphold all legal rights which includes same sex marriages.
Are there alternatives that could be considered to allow these seemingly conflicting ideas to coexist? Explain. I would think there should be alternatives but unfortunately there are not any that will allow an individual that is an elected official to exercise their religious rights when it comes to their duties as a to marrying the same sex.
