In-depth, written analysis: step by step

Due date

You will turn in your group written analyzes and group self evaluations during the final exam period. This date is set by the university and announced two thirds of the way through the semester.

    What is required?

  1. A short, concise summary of your case. This should be more than a translation or paraphrasing of the case.
  2. A detailed account of the presentation your group gave during the Ethics Bowl that includes the following: (a) a clear, comprehensive, and concise summary of the other team's commentary; (b) an account of how your team responded to the other team's commentary; (c) an itemization of the questions asked and the answers composed by your team during the competition; (d) a reasoned statement of how your group responded to this feedback as well as the scoring of the competition.
  3. A revised analysis of the case and question that incorporates the other team's commentary and the judge's response.
  4. A "devil's advocate" section consisting of a clear, full, and strong statement of a position opposed to that of your team's. This could incorporate the comments of the other team and judges or result from your group's own deliberation.
  5. A response to the devil's advocate position referring to your revised presentation.

Ethics bowl rules and structure

  1. The moderator will begin the competition by flipping a coin to determine which team will present first. If the team that calls wins the toss, they choose whether they or the other team go first.
  2. First Class : (A) Team 1 will have one minute to consult and seven minutes to give its initial presentation. The presentation must be tied to the question/task given to it by the moderator. (B) Team 2 has a minute to consult and seven minutes to give a commentary on Team 1's presentation. This is much more than rebuttal or criticism; Team 2 can add to, agree with or disagree with all or part of Team 1's presentation. Team 2 may close its commentary by posing a question to Team 1. (C) Team 1 then has a minute to consult and five minutes to respond to Team 2's Commentary. (D) Team 1 will answer questions posed by the judges and the peer review teams for 15 minutes. Each participant formulates a question and is allowed a quick follow-up for clarification. (E)The judges and peer review teams will score the first half of the competition but not announce the results.
  3. Second Class : The same procedure will occur while reversing the roles between Teams 1 and 2. Thus, team 2 will present, team 1 comment, team 2 respond, and then team 2 will answer questions from the judges. The peer review panels will add the scores for the second part of the competition but will hold off on announcing the results until Friday's class.
  4. Debating teams may trade minutes from consulting to presenting. For example, Team 1 may decide to take two minutes to consult when given their case and task. This will mean that they have 6 minutes remaining in which to present, not seven.
  5. Nota Bene : Debating teams and Peer Review teams are not allowed to bring notes into the competition. You will be provided with paper to take notes once the competition starts.
  6. Even though the national Ethics Bowl competition allows only one presenter, debating teams will be allowed to "pass the baton." When one person finishes speaking, another can step into his or her place. It is absolutely forbidden that more than one person speak at a time. Also, the competing team's speaking time is limited to its commentary. Once that is over, they are instructed to listen quietly. Infractions will be followed first by a warning. Second infractions will result in points being subtracted.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
