In-depth, written analysis: step by step

Due date

You will turn in your group written analyzes and group self evaluations during the final exam period. This date is set by the university and announced two thirds of the way through the semester.

    What is required?

  1. A short, concise summary of your case. This should be more than a translation or paraphrasing of the case.
  2. A detailed account of the presentation your group gave during the Ethics Bowl that includes the following: (a) a clear, comprehensive, and concise summary of the other team's commentary; (b) an account of how your team responded to the other team's commentary; (c) an itemization of the questions asked and the answers composed by your team during the competition; (d) a reasoned statement of how your group responded to this feedback as well as the scoring of the competition.
  3. A revised analysis of the case and question that incorporates the other team's commentary and the judge's response.
  4. A "devil's advocate" section consisting of a clear, full, and strong statement of a position opposed to that of your team's. This could incorporate the comments of the other team and judges or result from your group's own deliberation.
  5. A response to the devil's advocate position referring to your revised presentation.

Ethics bowl rules and structure

  1. The moderator will begin the competition by flipping a coin to determine which team will present first. If the team that calls wins the toss, they choose whether they or the other team go first.
  2. First Class : (A) Team 1 will have one minute to consult and seven minutes to give its initial presentation. The presentation must be tied to the question/task given to it by the moderator. (B) Team 2 has a minute to consult and seven minutes to give a commentary on Team 1's presentation. This is much more than rebuttal or criticism; Team 2 can add to, agree with or disagree with all or part of Team 1's presentation. Team 2 may close its commentary by posing a question to Team 1. (C) Team 1 then has a minute to consult and five minutes to respond to Team 2's Commentary. (D) Team 1 will answer questions posed by the judges and the peer review teams for 15 minutes. Each participant formulates a question and is allowed a quick follow-up for clarification. (E)The judges and peer review teams will score the first half of the competition but not announce the results.
  3. Second Class : The same procedure will occur while reversing the roles between Teams 1 and 2. Thus, team 2 will present, team 1 comment, team 2 respond, and then team 2 will answer questions from the judges. The peer review panels will add the scores for the second part of the competition but will hold off on announcing the results until Friday's class.
  4. Debating teams may trade minutes from consulting to presenting. For example, Team 1 may decide to take two minutes to consult when given their case and task. This will mean that they have 6 minutes remaining in which to present, not seven.
  5. Nota Bene : Debating teams and Peer Review teams are not allowed to bring notes into the competition. You will be provided with paper to take notes once the competition starts.
  6. Even though the national Ethics Bowl competition allows only one presenter, debating teams will be allowed to "pass the baton." When one person finishes speaking, another can step into his or her place. It is absolutely forbidden that more than one person speak at a time. Also, the competing team's speaking time is limited to its commentary. Once that is over, they are instructed to listen quietly. Infractions will be followed first by a warning. Second infractions will result in points being subtracted.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
