I'm working on a group project. My portion is to evaluate Kraft's managerial practices based on how much they encourage entrepreneurship and employee empowerment, what ethical dilemmas they've faced, how technology is involved and whether the company is socially responsive or responsible. Can you help me?
Hi! I'm happy to help. This may be one solution where Google could work a little better than library resources - and I don't say that often! From the Kraft Heinz website: https://kraftheinz.avature.net/careers/StudentsPrograms https://www.kraftheinzcompany.com/pdf/KHC_CSR_2017_Overview.pdf https://www.kraftheinzcompany.com/sustainability.html https://www.kraftheinzcompany.com/ethics-compliance.htm https://www.kraftheinzcompany.com/company-news.html <----- definitely page through these articles Try some of these articles from Google: https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/04/investing/kraft-heinz-warren-buffett-berkshire-hathaway/index.html https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/07/misconduct-at-kraft-heinz-puts-spotlight-on-pressure-to-meet-targets.html https://www.foodbusinessnews.net/articles/16864-the-new-kraft-heinz-is-coming-into-focus https://www.forbes.com/sites/hankcardello/2019/03/29/why-big-food-companies-like-kraft-heinz-arent-cutting-the-mustard/?sh=2a00f176710e I'm confident you can find everything you need by hopping through these articles and Googling things like, "Kraft Heinz and ethics" or "Kraft Heinz and the environment" etc. Please let me know if this helps, if you need more, if you need something specific. I'm happy to help! Ms. Rosser

Can you help me find primary resources for my paper on slavery in ancient (before 1500) China?
Alright! Let's get started. Attached: 1) Excerpts from Deed of Sale of a Slave (scroll down to 2nd page) 2) The Tang Code Vol. 1 (Vol. 2 is also available) 3) pottery of a Kunlun slave https://en.dpm.org.cn/collections/collections/2015-05-08/3976.html How to find these resources and more like them: Step 1: Go to the World History LibGuide on our website. https://libguides.methodist.edu/worldhistory Step 2: Click on "Websites and Primary Resources" Step 3: Scroll down to the last 5ish items for China. Step 4: This is where the sifting and winnowing comes in... you really just have to open them up, try to search them, click around, do a lot of CTRL+F for the word "slave" and keep going through links, tabs, etc. Primary sources from ancient China that have been translated into English are a little more challenging to find so if it's taking a lot of effort, you're not necessarily doing anything wrong! This is where I found the Tang Code, and where you'll find Vol. 2: http://lsc.chineselegalculture.org/Documents/E-Library?ID=8 - just as a note, you need to download the PDF in order to search through them effectively. This is where I found the deed: http://afe.easia.columbia.edu/main_pop/ps/ps_china.htm with a CTRL+F of "Slavery" Take a look at what I've provided, spend some time searching/sifting through those primary resources and then let me know how you're doing. I'm more than happy to keep looking, but I don't want to overwhelm you. Thank you, Ms. Rosser
How do I find research for my literature review on legalizing marijuana?
I'd love to help! You haven't narrowed it down very much, so I'll give you some broad search terms. You're going to have an avalanche of resources at this point. Once you have your own ideas of how to confront the problem, you can tailor your searches accordingly. If you have some specific ideas, let me know and I can help, too. Step 1: Go to the Justice Studies LibGuide https://libguides.methodist.edu/justicestudies Step 2: Click on the CQ Researcher tab and open up CQ Researcher Online Step 3: Search "Legalizing Marijuana" first, then you can try "Drug Abuse" or "Medical Marijuana" or "Opioid Crisis" etc. Step 4: Take a look at your results. You have lots of options. The "Short Reports" are good, but you want to open up the full reports for the best info. Step 5: Read these guides. Click on the "Pro/Con" tabs. Click on the backgrounds, overviews, outlooks, etc. Don't forget about the CITE BUTTON in the top, right corner for your bibliography. Then, go back to your LibGuide. Step 6: Click on the "Electronic Resources" tab. Step 7: Open up ProQuest Research Library or ProQuest Criminal Justice Database Step 8: Copy and paste one of these searches into the search box - cycle through all of them until you have what you need. Make sure you open up the PDFs when you click on an article and don't forget about the cite button, the related items, and checking their references if they're listed; some may be very useful to you. Paste in one of these searches and then start trying your own words: "law enforcement" AND "illegal drugs" legalization and "illegal drugs" "drug courts" and recidivism reform and drug and policy and "United States" Here are a few I found to get you started: http://ez-proxy.methodist.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/docview/1909047693?accountid=12408 http://ez-proxy.methodist.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/docview/2019946116?accountid=12408 http://ez-proxy.methodist.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/docview/208839769?accountid=12408 http://ez-proxy.methodist.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/docview/1820251319?accountid=12408 http://ez-proxy.methodist.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.proquest.com/docview/2206261013?accountid=12408 Is that enough to get you started? What else can I do to help? Please let me know. Thank you, Ms. Rosser
