2b. Henrie's Drapery Service is investigating the purchase of a new machine for cleaning and blocking drapes. The machine would cost $137,320, including freight and installation. Henrie's estimated the new machine would increase the company's cash inflows, net of expenses, by $40,000 per year. The machine would have a five-year useful life and no salvage value. Click here to view Exhibit 12B-1 and Exhibit 128-2, to determine the appropriate discount factor(s) using table. Required: 1. What is the machine's internal rate of return? (Round your answer to whole decimal place i.e. 0.123 should be considered as 12 %.) 2. Using a discount rate of 14%, what is the machine's net present value? 3. Suppose the new machine would increase the company's annual cash inflows, net of expenses, by only $38,090 per year. Under these conditions, what is the internal rate f return?

Discussion 1: Ability, Disability, and Erasure

Discussion 1: Ability, Disability, and Erasure

Consider the notion that an individual with a disability may feel primarily defined by his or her ability status. Also, consider the historical treatment of people with disabilities and the number of individuals who were euthanized and sterilized in the U.S. and across the globe due to having a disability.

For decades, individuals with disabilities were left in institutions, hidden away from the rest of society. Parents were told if their child was born with a disability, they should have them locked away. Consider in today’s society how people with disabilities are still “hidden.” Think about how many people you see each day that have a visible disability. While there are many hidden disabilities that should not be ignored, it is significant to recognize the limited number of people you see each day with disabilities. Also, consider how others react toward a person with a disability in public. Do they stare? Do they move away? Do they invade the person’s space and ask inappropriate questions? What experiences have you seen in public with a person with a disability? Why do you think society has marginalized this group for so long? Why are those with disabilities limited or eliminated from full participation in society today? Who has the right to decide what makes a “good life” and how is that decision made?

To prepare: Read the case “Working With Individuals With Disabilities: Valerie.”

By Day 3

Post an explanation of why our society has marginalized those with varying abilities historically. Then, explain the role of social workers in supporting clients with varying abilities (not limited to physical and mental) while recognizing and honoring those clients’ other identity characteristics. Use specific examples from the case study in your explanation.


Assignment 1: Eating Disorders


Cultures idealizing thinness, pressure from peers to fit in, and constant images of bodily perfection shown by mass media, along with additional physiological and psychological factors, can combine to create the perfect storm for adolescents struggling with eating disorders. For this Assignment, choose one peer-reviewed research study about eating disorders that focuses on a minority group of adolescents. Consider connections between physiological development, adolescence, and eating disorders.


·      Submit a 2-page paper for which you articulate a position on eating disorders in adolescent girls from diverse racial and cultural experiences.
·      Explain how the position is related to the biological and/or physiological development as well as psychological development of adolescent girls.
·      Further, explain how such findings can inform evidence-based social work practice.

 ·      Please use the Learning Resources and the research study you identified to support your answer.

Assignment 2: Multiracial Discrimination


Dalmage (2013) writes, “Parents and teachers should be aware of the unique forms of discrimination faced by multiracial children and the White supremacist system in which discrimination flourishes” (p. 101). As social workers, we should be aware of our own understanding of what it means to be multiracial in society. This awareness includes a review of our own potential biases that might exist. We need to challenge our own personal ideas about how we categorize individuals and those assumptions that follow along with those categories. Rather, we must respect our client’s experience as a multiracial person in the world, beginning with asking him or her how they would define themselves when completing an intake or assessment form. Further, a social worker must be aware of the many forms of racism and prejudice a person with a multiracial background might experience. As Dalmage discusses, judgment comes from many sides with different intentions and expectations. Being aware of the particular forms of racism that a person who is multiracial will experience will give you the ability to do your best to understand their experience and empathize.


·      Submit a 2-page paper. Describe the impact of discrimination on individuals of multiracial backgrounds.
·      Describe the impact of biracial/multiracial or multiethnic distinction on our society.
·      Justify your response. How do these distinctions relate to social work practice with individuals, families, groups, and communities?
·      Be sure to use APA formatting and references from the Learning Resources and two additional peer-reviewed resources from the Walden library about the discrimination against biracial and multiracial individuals.
