Assignment Instructions
Answer the following questions using the guidelines provided above:

In the introduction to The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Perry distinguishes between being human and humane (Perry & Szalavitz, 2017, p. 12).
What are the differences? Provide a personal or historical example to illustrate your point.
What is the author’s main idea? Summarize it in 1–2 sentences. Does he consistently come back to this idea in each case he examines? Explain using examples from the various chapters.
In many sessions Dr. Perry has with the children, he describes doing a coloring activity with them. How does this help his relationship with the children? What are some of his techniques?
Do the children you read about in The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog have an opportunity to experience a normal adult life? Explain your answer; cite the text if possible.
In Chapter 4, “Skin Hunger,” Perry describes and explains the concept of the “failure to thrive” (Perry & Szalavitz, 2017, pp. 89–91). What does this mean? What key points about the ability to thrive were made in the chapter? What are some of the causes and lasting problems associated with the condition?
What is a good environment? Does this vary based on cultural or economic reasons?
According to the text, why was Tina unable to behave normally for a child her age? Is she a “lost cause,” as they say, or does she still have the ability to overcome the difficulties of her youth? Cite the text, and provide evidence to support your opinion.
In Chapter 5, “The Coldest Heart,” Leon is diagnosed as a sociopath (Perry & Szalavitz, 2017, pp. 112–113). In your well-read opinion, who is responsible for his condition? Explain, providing textual support and evidence. What can we learn from his story?

Which is more important, nature, which is biology, or nurture, which is the environment? Provide an example.
Are the roles of socioeconomic class and race important elements in the work that Dr. Perry does? Does he handle these issues well? Explain.
What is RAD (Perry & Szalavitz, 2017, pp. 192–194)? How does a child acquire the disorder, and what are the symptoms?
In his conclusion, Dr. Perry gives a summation of his ideas. What are some of the ways in which Dr. Perry suggests children, and all people, can thrive?
In Chapter 11, “Healing Communities,” Dr. Perry states, “The world we live in now is biologically disrespectful” (Perry & Szalavitz, 2017, p. 262). Explain what he means, and interpret the idea. Do you agree?

What arguments can be raised to support the œpoliticization of accounting rule-making?

Question

Some accountants have said that politicization in the development and acceptance of generally accepted accounting principles (i.e rule making) is taking place. Some use the term œpoliticization in a narrow sense to mean the influence by governmental agencies, particularly the Security and Exchange Commission, on the development of generally accepted accounting principles.Others use it more broadly to mean the compromise that results when the bodies responsible for developing generally accepted accounting principles are pressured by interest groups (SEC, American Accounting Association, businesses through their various organizations, Institute of Management Accountants, financial analysts, bankers, lawyers, and so on).

(a) The Committee on Accounting Procedure of the AICPA was established in the mid-to late 1930s and functioned until 1959, at which time the Accounting Principles Board came into existence.In 1973, the Financial Accounting Standards Board was formed and the APB went out of existence.Do the reasons these groups were formed, their methods of operation while in existence, and the reasons for the demise of the first two indicate an increasing politicization (as the term is used in the broad sense) of accounting standard-setting?Explain your answer by indicating how the CAP, the APB, and the FASB operated or operate. Cite specific developments that tend to support your answer.

(b) What arguments can be raised to support the œpoliticization of accounting rule-making?

(c) What arguments can be raised against the œpoliticization of accounting rule-making?

Refer to ACS case study number 2, Diane the Consultant, reference:
https://www.acs.org.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/30964/ACS_Ethics_Case_Studies_v2.1.pdf
Task
Prepare a business report of about 1500 words that analyses the ethical issues raised in the case study and explores how the client might respond if something goes wrong after the client implements the new software. In particular include in the report responses to the following sub-tasks:
• Using each of the four philosophical theories in turn, identify the factors that contribute to an ethical decision.
• The case study lists relevant clauses of the Code of Professional Conduct. Explain, for each of the six clauses, how the clause applies to the case study.
• On the basis of the previous two sub-tasks, advise Diane with regard to the ethical decision she should make indicating the main arguments for and against your recommendation.
• For this section only, extend the case study as follows: Diane accepted the client’s wishes to provide low security only; the database management system (DBMS) that she developed for the client was put into operation by the client; six months later the DBMS was penetrated and damaged by a hacker (recall that Diane had clearly advised the client of this risk); consequently many of the stakeholders associated with the DBMS lost all confidence in the client. In this sub-task you are to explain the principles behind ethical repair and recovery and make recommendations as to how the client might regain the confidence and trust from its stakeholders. [Note that this section requires some research on your part as the topic is not covered in the Moodle course materials.]
