Name and briefly discuss the two types of effects that accompany the term motivating operation (MO). Define and discuss the similarities and differences between unconditioned motivating operations (UMO’s) and conditioned motivating operations (CMO’s). Compare and contrast the different types of conditioned motivating operations (CMO’s). State and discuss one example of an unconditioned motivating operation (UMO) as it relates to a human organism. Discuss the antecedent variables SDand MO. Provide a concrete example to illustrate the arguments you make. Give at least two motivating operations in your life; specify the MO (EO or AO?), and the behavior and reinforcement they influence.

Mr. Akkad is a 76 year old Iranian male who is brought to your office by his eldest son for “strange behavior.” Mr. Akkad was seen by his family physician who ruled out any organic basis for Mr. Akkad’s behavior. All laboratory and diagnostic imaging tests (including CT-scan of the head) were normal. According to his son, he has been demonstrating some strange thoughts and behaviors for the past two years, but things seem to be getting worse. Per the client’s son, the family noticed that Mr. Akkad’s personality began to change a few years ago. He began to lose interest in religious activities with the family and became more “critical” of everyone. They also noticed that things he used to take seriously had become a source of….
In July of 1994, Jeff Bezos launched Amazon.com, initially as an online book retailer. In 2016, the company reported $136 billion in revenues. Your research assignment is to understand how Jeff grew this company so fast. Begin your essay by describing the key strategies that Jeff Bezos employed to grow the company during the past 23 years. Use credible sources and research to support and explain.
This is not an “opinion Essay,” it is purely a research essay within which you report findings from credible resources for the majority of the essay. At the end of the essay, draw your conclusion regarding the
(a) strategies employed,
(b) missteps that occurred, and finally
(c) what future strategies you would recommend Mr. Bezos employ to continue growth.
You have a new summer job with NASA and are working on astronomical observations using electromagnetic radiation that is not in the visible range. Your supervisor has explained 21cm radiation to you and that it is used for a number of observations of interstellar hydrogen. She explains that 21-cm radiation is in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum and comes from a hyperfine splitting of the electron ground state of hydrogen. It is similar to the Zeeman effect, except that it is the spin states that are split, and the magnetic field is internal to the atom: it comes from the magnetic field due to the nucleus. When the atom makes a transition from the higher state to the lower state, a 21-cm photon is emitted. Based….
You are hired as an expert witness by the attorney representing a doctor. The doctor is being sued by a patient who claimed radiation damage from the doctor’s x-ray machine. The plaintiff argues that the machine must not have been properly shielded, exposing him to dangerous radiation. Your visit to the doctor’s office shows the following results. You do indeed measure x-radiation in the doctor’s office, with a minimum wavelength of 30.0 pm. Consultation with the doctor and inspection of his x-ray machine shows that it accelerates electrons through a voltage of 35.0 kV before they strike the target, producing bremsstrahlung. What advice do you give the attorney?
