Create a valuation model for a new issuance of $100 million dollar corporate bon

Create a valuation model for a new issuance of $100 million dollar corporate bonds with a face value of par. Include numerical illustrations with tables. Remember the valuation model is hypothetical.
Write a research report that outlines the topics –
Develop and present a valuation model for corporate debt with a face value of $100 million dollars. The model should use hypothetical assumptions for the coupon rate and other characteristics as well as a hypothetical market interest rate. You must also select a maturity for the bonds and the frequency of the coupon payments. The market rate should be justifiable/reasonable given current market conditions. Explain why the model will be important for the issuance process that is being considered.
Explain the possible determinants of the market interest rate that you chose. For example, you should explain how the inflation rate in the economy could be expected to impact the market rate that you chose.
Explain how the market rate you chose will be dependent upon the maturity. Describe what you believe to be the most persuasive theory associated with the shape of market interest rates across the maturity spectrum (i.e., the yield curve).
Comment on how the different bond characteristics would influence the valuation of the bond. Provide illustrations in a summary table format for how the value might adjust for call provisions and sinking funds.

This paper will ask you to examine how countertransference has affected your abi

This paper will ask you to examine how countertransference has affected your ability
to engage in clinical work with traumatized clients. Countertransference differs from traumatic
reminders in clinicians; traumatic reminders are the pieces of our own previous traumatic
experiences which are revisited or triggered from clinical work. When discussing
25
SW528 Child And Adolescent Trauma 26
countertransference please consider this difference in dialogue. Please select one or a number of
clients you have worked with where you experienced issues around countertransference and
answer the following questions:
● In what ways did my countertransference become activated in my clinical work?
○ Where did I make mistakes?
○ Was my self-awareness limited, or where did I create boundary challenges
in my clinical work?
● What did I learn about myself through the process of examining my
countertransference? How will I do things differently in the future?
● What am I least confident about my ability to work with traumatized
children and adolescents?
● What am I most confident in around my ability to do trauma work?
*Write from the perspective of a 38-year-old white man working with substance use clients. Use the example of working with a woman that reminds the clinician of his mother who also has a substance use problem.

In Unit 4, the ideas of faith and religious expression were explored from multip

In Unit 4, the ideas of faith and religious expression were explored from multiple perspectives. It is a common theme in the Humanities to be driven to find a path to divine truth which are expressed in what are considered organized religions. In this assignment, you will share a spiritual journey that leads to or participates in one of the major or minor religions presented in Unit 4. It can be your own spiritual journey, a friend or family member, or even a favorite character in a film or book, but it must narrate a spiritual journey from unbelief to belief in a specific religion or religious system.
Think of this artifact as a symbol of the power of spiritual belief within your own life. How does your faith impact those around you? Does the moral tenets making up your religious system help you to be a model employee, a trusted friend, a helpful partner?
Organization:
Present:
a spiritual journey in narrative form. Remember, this artifact represents the power of spiritual belief and the reason we celebrate all religions in the Humanities. It is about the journey. How did you or the person whose journey you are sharing get from Point A of unbelief to Point B of belief? Was it another person’s testimony, sacred scriipture, a spiritual awakening experience, etc., that led to belief? That is the journey to present in your artifact (2 or more well-developed paragraphs).
Analyze:
the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ this religion impacts yourself and others. Do the moral tenets of the religious system help you or others to be model employees or more trusted friends, or helpful to family and loved ones? What does submission to the Divine bring to the soul (peace, assurance, comfort, etc.) (1 or more well-developed paragraphs)?
Reflect:
on what religion means to you now that you have completed Unit 4 and learned about other types of religions. Think about how having a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences the religions share strengthens your own beliefs. (1 or more well-developed paragraphs)
Format
For this assignment, you can use either MS Word or create a Powtoon or YouTube video. Note that your MS word document must include several images or pictures that illustrate your written statements in the same way you will use images in your Powtoon or YouTube video presentations.
Please see the tutorials available here for help creating the video.
If you use source material, please be sure it is academically credible and that you validate any sources used by creating in-text citations and references in APA format.
Estimated time to complete: 3-4 hours

ANSWER THE QUESTIONS PLEASE USED THE MATERIAL I ATTACHED 1-What do the stories

ANSWER THE QUESTIONS PLEASE USED THE MATERIAL I ATTACHED
1-What do the stories that Karen McCarthy Brown shares about Marie Noelsine (also known as “Sina” = Mama Lola’s grandmother) and Philomise (also known as “Philo” = Mama Lola’s mother) reveal about Mama Lola’s worldview? (Anthropologists’ understanding of worldview is defined in Chapter 2 of the textbook. For example, you could write about things such as gender roles, family ties, OR connections to Haiti and Africa.) (250 words; worth 50 points). HINT: If this question seems confusing, think about the stories you grew up hearing, either about your family members or from the Bible or other religious text. The people who tell these stories are often picking certain stories and telling those stories in a particular way so as to teach their worldview to listeners (their values; lessons about what types of behavior are likely to get you in trouble, etc.). This question wants you to think about why certain stories about Sina and Philo were repeated over and over again and why.
2-The exchange of money, food, and other items is a big part of the birthday party ritual that Mama Lola threw for Azaka, (described in Chapter 2 of Mama Lola), and the trip that Mama Lola and Karen McCarthy Brown made to Haiti, described on pages 169-182 (for those of you using digital versions, these pages fall in the Kousinn chapter, starting with the section called “A Trip to the Provinces” and ending just before the section called “Storytelling.”) (1) Briefly describe these exchanges; (2) analyze how they create bonds among the individuals who participate; and (3) analyze practioners’ beliefs about how the rituals create bonds between people and spirits (250-300 words; worth 50 points). HINT: essays that only discuss the Azaka ritual and do not discuss the trip to Haiti will not do well.

CONTENT
The content of your Final Project should be the same regardless of the format.
In this course, we examine the theories and stages of Childhood Development as they relate to parenting.
Students are to (1) write, or (2) teach, or (3) present on one theory of child development (children from 2 to 12 years of age) from these three theories:
(1) Lev Vygotsky (Лев Выготский) Sociocultural Theory.
(2) Jean Piaget Constructivist Theory.
(3) Erik Erikson Lifespan Development Theory.
Students will need to apply one theory and its concepts learned in the textbook as well as incorporate information from 2 (two) additional sources, such as peer-reviewed journals articles. You have to read up about that stage of child development. Use the textbook, but it will be brief and not detailed. You need to provide details. Use two articles published in peer-reviewed journals that are provided in Moodle.
Note: You may find your own articles, but NOT use Psychology Today, Redbook, Huffington Post, Wikipedia, WebMD, or similar sources. None of the media articles are valid. Use Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/schhp?hl=en-US) or McNeese Library online (https://libguides.mcneese.edu/databases) to search for articles from peer-reviewed journals.
Regardless of the format, the content of your Final Project should consist of these elements:
FP’s STRUCTURE: Your FP should clearly identify these parts:
1. The introduction should be 3-6 sentences or no more than 1 minute or (1 slide) stating right away what is the paper about?
State which theory you chose and explain WHY? (Not because it explains how a child grows!!!). Points will be lost if WHY is not elaborated on!
2. The body of your project should be 5-pages (8 min) or 12 slides. Build upon the introduction. Must-answer questions:
2.1. Thoroughly discuss & explain the stages of development for 0-12 y.o. children.
2.2. What makes childhood development to be important for parenting?
2.3. In your opinion, what are the most challenging behaviors 1 for 2-5 y.o. and 1 for 10-12 y.o.?
2.4. Describe examples of effective parenting techniques to “fix” the behaviors and to prevent those from happening.
2.5. What makes you favor this theory or HOW does the theory help parents understand children; what makes it so?
3. The conclusion should be 3-6 sentences or no more than 1 min. or 1 slide to summarize the project and say:
What was the most interesting discovery you learned from writing this project and what made it to be interesting?
