Does this meet the requirements of minimal risk?

A researcher is interested in whether children’s memory of a witnessed event can be changed through false information. Participants (10-12 years old) watch a recorded video of a car accident and then take part in a discussion regarding what they remember. Participants are randomly assigned to one of three conditions: experimenter-delivered false information, confederate-delivered false information, or control. In the experimenter-delivered condition, the experimenter introduces the incorrect information during the discussion. In the confederate-delivered condition, the incorrect information is introduced by an individual behaving as a participant. In the control condition, no incorrect information is presented during the discussion. After the discussion, participants’ memory for events are tested. Participants are fully debriefed as to the deception and purpose of the study.
Discuss the ethical issues of this idea. Does this meet the requirements of minimal risk? Why or why not? Address how you would approach each of the following issues (if it is something that you feel does not need addressed, explain why): minimal risk, informed consent, debriefing, the population you plan to use, possible coercion, the presence of deception, physical, psychological, or social risks, and confidentiality.

Blu Dot
When a trio of college friends with backgrounds in art and architecture started moving into their first apartments in the late 1990s, they were frustrated to find that when it came to furniture, they couldn’t afford what they liked and didn’t like what they could afford. Happily for many future furniture shoppers, however, this frustration led the three to found Blu Dot, a Minneapolis-based furniture design and manufacturing company that has flourished and grown.
Blu Dot specializes in the creation of furniture that is attractive, high quality, and affordable. Its modern, streamlined pieces use off-the-shelf materials and simple manufacturing processes that keep the company’s costs and prices down. The company also contracts with suppliers that make industrial rather than consumer products, because they use more efficient and cost-effective processes and technology. These strategies, plus designs that pack flat and are easy to ship, allow the firm to combine what Maurice Blanks, one of the founders, describes as the affordability of the low end of the market and the craftsmanship of the high end. Anyone can design a $600 or $700 coffee table, Blu Dot believes. It’s the $99 one the company is aiming for that’s more of a challenge.
The company sells seven product lines—tables, storage, accessories, desks, beds, seating, and shelving. Its pricing strategy for each of these is straightforward. Managers add their fixed and variable costs, plus the markup they believe they’ll need to keep the business functioning. They then usually look at what competitors are doing with similar products and try to identify three or four different pieces of pricing information to help them settle on a profitable price. The company also uses some creative pricing strategies to make its margins. For instance, one coffee table in a set might have a higher markup, whereas another has a slightly lower one for more price-conscious customers. Overall, then, the target margins are often met.
Blu Dot thinks of its total product offering as consisting of three interdependent elements: the core product, its supplemental features, and its symbolic or experiential value. Although some customers are attracted by the design aspects of the products, others are more concerned with value. That’s one reason the company recently introduced a separate brand, called +oo (“too”), and priced it slightly below the original Blu Dot line. These items have been marketed through Urban Outfitters, and Blu Dot has adjusted the prices over time after seeing how sales progressed. Co-founder John Christakos likens Blu Dot’s pricing practice to cooking, in that both are processes that allow for fine-tuning as events develop.
In an interesting recent promotion that flirted with the price of zero, Blu Dot celebrated the opening of its new store in New York’s hip SoHo district by leaving 25 brand new units of its iconic “Real Good Chair,” normally priced at $129, on various street corners in the city. Most of the chairs were equipped with GPS devices that allowed the company’s marketing agency to trace the chairs to those who “rescued” them and brought them home. The company’s website proclaims that all the chairs found good homes, and those “scavengers” who agreed to chat with the firm about its products received a second free chair in thanks.
1. What would a SWOT analysis of Blu Dot reveal to a marketing professional?
2. What are Blu Dot’s strategic goals?
3. Is Blu Dot′s strategy one of cost leadership, differentiation or focus? Explain your answer.

102 Research Paper Guidelines—this paper is 30% of your grade
Choosing a Topic: The first step in writing a research paper is choosing a topic. This semester, you will choose a topic from American history from the years 1960-2010. You will have to find a specific event, person, invention, etc. and focus on that topic. Be sure to narrow your topic to something specific and one that you can effectively discuss within the limited pages. For example, you might choose the 9/11 event. While you can certainly focus on some aspect of the event, you cannot discuss everything about 9/11 in 5 pages.
Your topic should –
(1) be of interest to you;
(2) be a topic that you can thoroughly discuss in 5 to 6 pages; and
(3) be one that you can find ample credible sources.
If you choose a person, you cannot simply do a biographical sketch of that person. You must focus on something that person did to contribute to or influence society. All topics must be submitted and approved by the instructor. Choosing Appropriate Sources: Once you have chosen and focused your topic, then it is time for you to search for potential sources. The final paper must be based on a minimum of five sources; however, you will have to read many more than five sources to be able to learn enough about your topic to know the “slant” or angle you wish to present in your paper. Appropriate sources may be found in the library or on the internet. You must choose credible sources. Do not use student-generated sources. General encyclopedias and Wikipedia are not acceptable sources. Try to confine your internet sources to those on the Alabama Virtual Library (AVL).
The research paper must- 1. be a minimum of 5 double-spaced pages of actual text;
2. be based on a minimum of five (5) credible sources (no general encyclopedias may be used; Wikipedia
may not be used).
3. be documented using the 9th edition of MLA format of parenthetical citations;
4. include a 9th edition MLA style works cited page;
5. focus on your chosen topic.
6. be typed in Times New Roman with a font size of 12;
7. be submitted to Blackboard.
Grading format: The final draft will be graded for –
1. content based on the length of the paper and the student’s ability to focus on a well-defined thesis statement;
the correct number of sources cited, and the depth of the research conducted;
2. grammar usage;
3. correct MLA documentation.
