I’m working on a sociology question and need guidance to help me understand better.

To participate in this discussion, you must view the film, The Great White Hoax-Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America (available here and in our Module)

After viewing the above film, participate in our weekly discussion, answering the following questions:

1. Racial scapegoating: According to Wise, what role did fear and danger play in the appeals Donald Trump made to American voters? Which voters did he seem to be addressing his message to?

2. Trumpism and Political Norms: What are some other examples of racial “dog-whistles” that white politicians have used with white audiences to communicate
that black and brown people are the source of their problems?

3. Divide and Conquer Politics: Why does Wise say Donald Trump “functions like a walking, talking opioid”?

4. Trumpism and White Cultural Anxiety: What is cultural anxiety and what role did it play in Trump’s victory ?

5. A Perfect Storm of White Male Anxiety: What was the reaction of most Trump supporters when he was caught on tape glamorizing and making light of sexual assault? What’s your own take on what these supporters had to say about this?

6. Learning from the Past: Why does Wise see reason for optimism despite rising levels of intolerance, racism, and white nationalism since Trump’s

election?

The contracts you will be using are in the Contracts Module.

There is one question for this Contract B.   I am looking for the ability to read and comprehend the contract so the appropriate contract clause can be applied to the questions connected with each contract.  In order to answer the contract fact scenario, you will also need to be able to identify the legal concept(s) that is applicable to the situation described.  This is an analysis so please treat it as such.  Your personal opinion is not appropriate.

There is a correct answer(s) for the question as several legal concepts apply.  If a student discusses a different legal theory for answering the question, partial points will be given.  In cases of complete or partial answers, text references are mandatory to support the remedy proposed by the student.  A text reference that has no bearing on the remedy or legal arguments will be counted as  “no text”.  For example, if any contract has an issue of risk of loss, referencing the text on contract formation will not meet the requirement.  The sections of the text that you have read contain all the information you need for this analysis.

Please remember to reference the applicable parts of the contract that you are using to answer each question.

A student will be given 3 points for the text reference, 4 points for the contract reference(s),  with 15 points for the analysis itself.

The remaining 3 points will be given as a spelling/grammar score.  Following is the prompt.

UCC Sales Contract

The following question is based on the Sales Contract found in the Contracts Module. Please reference the Sales Contract by clause number as you answer the questions.  Remember, this is a contract under the UCC. 

  • Essay (2 complete paragraphs minimum per essay with text and contract references to support your answers)

You contend that you received non-conforming goods as a result of an ambiguity in the contract.  You ordered goods thinking you would get a particular product.  You wanted Razor scooters.  That was the original oral telephonic communication when you first contacted the selling merchant.  You both talked about and agreed on Razor scooters. Thereafter, in additional phone conversations, you and the seller just used the phrase “scooters”. The seller prepared a written contract and sent it to the buyer for review and signature.  The contract was signed by both parties.  The selling merchant then shipped scooters that are in perfect condition but they are not Razor scooters. The selling merchant believes the goods are conforming.  Upon receipt and inspection of the goods, what are all your merchant options under the contract and at law?

You can approach these contracts as you would any problem you encounter in your life by setting up the framework you need to help solve the problem.   What do the parties want (call it a remedy)?  What are the facts that each believes supports their “remedy”?  What does the contract say about their remedy?  What does the law say about that?  Now, can you come to a conclusion supported by the contract language and the law?  If yes, then write it out.  You must support your conclusion with at least one text reference per contract.

Why are text references important?  Contract language does not exist in a vacuum.  It is written based on the law.  It is critical, therefore, to cite to the text and the contract to support your analysis.

Module 2: Chapter 3, Written Response 1 Arguments

Let’s start with finding premises and conclusions. For the next few arguments, state what the premise is and what the conclusion is. Remember, you could have more than one premise and it may not be the first statement. You will only have one conclusion. This exercise is graded.

  • For the following arguments, determine what statement is the conclusion and what statement/s are the premises. You may state it or underline it. Don’t forget to look for indicator words as they will signal a conclusion or the premises. The next exercise, find the missing statement based on identification of the form.

1. God is that than which none greater can be conceived. If God were just an idea we could easily conceive of something greater, namely, a God who actually existed. Therefore, if God is that than which none greater can be conceive, then God must exist. (St. Anselm)

2. Titanium combines readily with oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen, all of which have an adverse effect on its mechanical properties. As a result, titanium must be processed in their absence. (World of Science Encyclopedia)

3. Artists and poets look at the world and seek relationships and order. But they translate their ideas to canvas, or to marble, or into poetic images. Scientists try to find relationships between different objects and events. To express the order they find, they create hypotheses and theories. Thus, the great scientific theories are easily compared to great art and great literature. (Giancoli, The Ideas of Physics, 3rd Ed.)

4. Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good. For this reason, the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim. (Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics)

5. Al Gore has a clear vision of where this nation must go with regards to energy policies. Anyone who has such a vision can write his ticket into the 21st century, and should be elected president. Al Gore is the right man to lead this country for the next four years. (Critical Thinking, Moore & Parker)

6. The fact that there was never a land bridge between Australia and mainland Asia is evidenced by the fact that the animal species in the two areas are very different. Asian placental mammals and Australian marsupial mammals have not been in contact in the last several million years. (Price and Feinman, Images of the Past)

  • Now try to find the missing premise or conclusion by way of the forms, either valid or invalid, that you learned. Write it into the blank and tell us what form it fulfills.

1) All bachelors are unmarried men.

Ed is a bachelor.

Therefore, _______________________________

2) If you are rich then I am single.

________________________________

You are not rich.

3) All teachers work hard.

_______________________________

All teachers pay taxes.

4) Either today is Tuesday or it is Wednesday.

___________________________________

Today is Tuesday.

NEED A SOCIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS FOR THR PRESTENTATION I CONDUCTED BELOW 

TOPIC: Social Construct or biological

ARTIFACT I CHOSE:

2 dISCUSSION QUESTIONS I WROTE AND ANSWERED :

-Does gender influence the way one is perceived in the social eye?

Personally I do believe that gender does make a mark and does influence the way that one is perceived in the social eye. There is a sense of double standard that is shown in the Pantene commercial. Where when a man does something it is deemed so highly and look at in a positive note. Along side that in the clip when a woman is doing the exact same thing it has a negative connotation around it. We can even make these observations in our own society. Women tend to face a double standard or are undermined compared to men. The first example that came to my mind would be sports. Women and Men who have the exact same professional sport careers are treated so differently in so many aspects. Could the reasoning for that be caused by the perception of professional women in sports from the social eye? That is one topic that we could discuss into from the many of topics. Another one could be the differences in how men and women dress and how they are perceived as well. There are many pin points that can tie into this topic.

-Can double standard block one from opportunity 

I do think that double standard can block one from opportunity. These assumptions that you make about a person can be so detrimental to ones every day life. Regardless of everything you make judgement throughout your entire day. Starting with when you get out of bed and to decisions like if you should start you assignment or not. We use judgement everywhere. Along side that when double standard is implemented it guides us one way versus another when we are making these judgements. If you have a notion of someone or something as hard working and just due to double standard you deem the other one as unable you are mearly blocking all forms of opportunity for the other option. This is why we shouldn’t have this close minded point of view in life and not implement or take double standard from society  when we are making decisions. 

Expect you to think about the topics and not just conduct a Google search.  You must clearly make a sociological connection and use the course language to do well in this assignment.

By the following Monday after your presentation, each student will use the assignment tool on our CC site to submit a minimum of 2 page sociological analysis of your artifact using an aspect of our class readings.  Late assignments will lose points!    Make sure to include your class question and answer in your separate write up. No write up, no creditGender Artifact Presentation (17 points) Post by 6pm Monday ( this give the class time to add feedback all week.)

At the beginning of the semester each student will sign up to present a gendered cultural artifact online to the class.  This is an opportunity for a presentation  where you will post an  “artifact” from our culture that connects to “doing gender” in Society and the particular topic we are studying in the week you present. To do well with this assignment it is key to link specifically to the topic for the week.  Talking about the readings first, and how you connect your artifact to the week’s work is very important!  Of course making sociological connections!

The artifact could be a segment from a TV show, a radio piece from NPR, a music video, a commercial,  a meme, a program flier from an event you just attended, a poem, a song, some type of current event- i.e. from the presidential campaign trail, etc. Be creative. Your presentation can be as casual or formal as you would like.

In the semester there will be posted in the Discussions a fact scenario that relates to the material in the textbook and handouts. A series of questions will be posted with this scenario. Each student who participates in this discussion can receive up to 15 points per scenario for the answers and 5 points for the response.

Participation is defined as posting one’s comments or answers to the questions in the assigned forum and responding in any forum. Have a discussion please. If you wish to respond in a different forum, Canvas will require you to first post a short introduction and then you can see the threads in that forum.

“Yes” or “No” or “I agree” is not an answer nor is it a response. I’m looking for developed answers that include an analysis of the scenario in relationship to the content of the textbook. A response is a comment(s) to someone so please indicate whose post you are responding to and develop your answer. I don’t know the context for your response if I don’t know who, by name, you are responding to. The statement, “I agree with you”, doesn’t tell me who you are responding to as all I see is a string of names.

The following is from a student who posted a long response but really didn’t say anything: “I agree with all of the examples and such that you gave. The examples you gave from the book are very good and are actually substantial. I agree with your viewpoints as well. I would be in favor of xyz in this situation as well for the reasons you had said and other reasons listed in my post. Overall, great post! Keep up the good work!” What did this student say besides “I agree with you”?

There must be at least one reference to chapter/page/lecture note in a student’s discussion. If a student chooses not to participate, no points will be received. Minimal participation will yield partial points.

You may find that some student(s) who posted prior to you may have covered the points you wanted to cover. Explore the material to see if there isn’t something additional to add or a new perspective. Perhaps you can explore the “opposition” side. I’m looking for analysis using the scenario facts and the materials in the text and online – there is no right or wrong answer – it’s how you discuss and support your position that’s critical. That means some legal theory for your answer must appear. However, an incorrect application of the material, e.g., a tort concept in a breach of contract action without adequate support will result in some point deductions.

Remember, there are always different ways of looking at things – You say goodbye and I say hello. There is a certain amount of vagueness in the facts of each scenario to allow for different perspectives.

Students will be divided into groups according to the first letters of their last names. (Jury 1 A-C for example). Each group will be assigned a different scenario. Please monitor Canvas’s Discussion to see which Scenario/Group you have been assigned to. While a response can be posted in any forum following the directions above, the initial post must be submitted in the assigned forum.

All forums are deliberately kept to a maximum of 5 members in order to allow each member enough new material to discuss. If the forum gets to large because students outside the forum post to the initial questions, it robs the forum members of an opportunity to demonstrate their analytical skills.

If a non-forum member submits an initial post, not a response, in the incorrect forum, it will be treated as a response for purposes of grading and given no more than 2 points.

All discussions will be posted in the Discussions section. That is also where the Scenarios will be found. Each student’s analysis/discussion must also be posted in the Discussions.

When you respond to another’s post, please indicate the student(s) to whom you are responding. It can be difficult to follow your response if I don’t know the basis for that response. And please, remember to introduce yourself as a visitor to that forum as a matter of courtesy. This is important – you must create a new thread to introduce yourself before you can read the other students’ posts. You don’t need to do this in your own forum. In fact, do not do it. Creating a new thread in a forum to which you weren’t assigned and answering the scenario questions as though the answers are a response, won’t count as a 5 point response. That will result in a maximum of 2 points towards the 5 points for a response.

DO NOT prepare your answers as an attachment. I won’t open it to grade it and I don’t expect another student to open an attachment from someone they don’t know.

Spelling and grammar are a part of the grading and deductions will be taken if there are errors in these areas.

There are NO MAKEUPS for this assignment if missed. You will have a minimum of 4 days in which to complete the scenario to which you are assigned. I will not take these late because once the dates have passed, the class has moved on and the discussion is no longer taking place. Posting a late response will therefore not contribute to the class discussion, which is why they won’t be accepted.

You are required to create a thread and post something before being able to view the other students’ posts. I have observed that some students attempt to “scam” the forum by posting a sentence in their assigned forum as their initial answers. That enables them to view the other posts. Then they will be able to continue their answers in a second post having the benefit of seeing what others have written. If I believe you’ve done that, you’ll receive points only for the first post which is generally -0-.

Do not edit your original post unless you ask me first. I will treat an edited post according to the requirements laid out in the paragraph preceding this one.

I can tell if you’ve done this due to the lapse of time between your “introduction” post and then the actual answers to the scenario. If you accidentally click “submit” before you are finished, then email me immediately and tell me what you’ve done so I can keep that in mind when I grade your initial post.Tooters Restaurant used an alternative dispute resolution program. Employees of Tooters had to sign an “agreement to arbitrate employment-related disputes” to be eligible for raises, transfers, and promotions. Under the agreement, both Tooters and the employee agreed to resolve all disputes arising out of employment, including “any claim of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, or wrongful discharge, whether arising under federal or state law,” through arbitration.

In a separate policy document not shared with employees until after they had signed the agreement, Tooters set forth the rules and procedures of its arbitration program:

The employee had to provide notice of the specifics of the claim, but Tooters did not need to file any type of response to these specifics or notify the employee of what kinds of defenses the company planned to raise.

Only the employee had to provide a list of all facts or witnesses and a brief summary of the facts known to each.

While the employee and Tooters could each choose an arbitrator from a list, and the two arbitrators chosen would then select a third to create the arbitration panel that would hear the dispute, Tooters alone selected the arbitrators that were put on the list.

Only Tooters had the right to widen the scope of arbitration to include award any matter, whereas the employee was limited to the matters raised in his or her notice.

Only Tooters had the right to record the arbitration.

Only Tooters could cancel the agreement to arbitrate or change the arbitration rules.

Samantha Phillips had worked as a bartender at the Tooters restaurant for about five years before Tooters adopted its arbitration policy. Samantha was given a copy of the agreement to arbitrate to review for five days and then sign. Approximately two years later, a Tooters official grabbed and slapped her buttocks. After appealing to her manager for help and being told to “let it go,” she quit her job. When she threatened to file a lawsuit for sexual harassment, Tooters filed an action in federal district court to compel arbitration of Phillip’s claims.

  1. Should Samantha be forced to settle her claim through arbitration? Why?
  2. Assume your company’s arbitration policy was exactly like Tooters’. Name one aspect would you retain, and which one might you change? Why? Be specific.

It is acceptable to use the Power Point slides for the required text reference.

In October, 2019, California companies can no longer require employees to sign an agreement forcing harassment, discrimination and wage claims into arbitration as a condition of employment instead of being able to sue.

California’s legislation was careful not to conflict with the Federal Arbitration Act and U.S. Supreme Court case law that allows companies to enforce mandatory arbitration agreements. The new state law says it’s illegal to require mandatory arbitration as a condition for employment, but doesn’t invalidate existing agreements. It also protects employees from retaliation and allows them to go to the state Labor Commissioner’s Office.

One of the most important parts of working with parents (or being a parent) is finding appropriate resources about a specific topic. Each of you will pick a topic to find 5 resources to share with families. Three of the five resources must be focused on school-aged children. You should have already selected your topic during Module 5 (if you didn’t email me and I will assign you a topic).

The purpose of this assignment is to start building your own resource list of services you may want to share with the families you work and interact with. One of the most important tasks when working with families is providing them resources for the many challenges, concerns, and questions parents may have.

You will start your assignment by writing up a short vignette about a mock family who is interested in gaining resources about the topic you have selected. There isn’t a minimum amount of words for your vignette you just need to give enough information to direct your search for resources and for me to understand your thought process.

A successful assignment will have resources that have been well researched for relevance, quality, and have all the important information that a parent might want about that resource. If you are unsure about the quality of your resources, see if it meets the CRAP test (Links to an external site.). There is no “correct” answer, but there should be enough information that a family knows exactly what resource you are sharing and how they can access it themselves. There is no page requirement, but you must have at least 5 resources with 3 being specific to school-aged children. Finally, any discriminatory language or themes will result in lost points. See below for formatting suggestions. You must use Times New Roman and size 12 font.

In your own word no reference! https://open.lib.umn.edu/communication/ Write one paragraph for each question.

Q1)Reading & Notes #9:

Chapter 7: Communication in Relationships:

7.1 Foundations of Relationships

7.2 Communication and Friends

7.3 Communication and Families

Q2) Chapter 7: Relationships

7.4 Romantic Relationships

7.5 Relationships at Work

7.6 The Dark Side of Relationships

DIRECTIONS:

You will be asked to read chapters, according to the “class schedule” handout. You will then take “notes” on those readings for your own understanding and to assist you with doing well on your quizzes.

Make sure that you read all the chapters that I’ve asked you to read. They are not going in chronological order all of the time. there are also several chapters within what I call “one reading”.

If I label something a “READING”. Then you need to do the notes for that particular set of notes. At the end of each set of notes you will write your own personal reaction to the material that you just read and took notes on. It will be explained in more detail under the heading “Personal Comments”.

You will submit your notes & comments to Canvas, and you will receive 10 points for a complete set of “notes” including your own personal journal response.

SPECIFIC STEPS TO GET 10 POINTS ON YOUR NOTES & PERSONAL COMMENTS:

PART 1: Do the required “Reading” (the schedule will be on the module).

PART 2: Take notes. Computer printed notes or handwritten are accepted.

Write your notes in some type of “outline” format. This means I expect To see abbreviations, key words, phrases… There is not a maximum number of pages, (but 2-3 is common).

Less than a page of notes is not acceptable. You will be uploading your typed or handwritten notes to Canvas, under each assignment.

PART 3: PERSONAL COMMENTS: This is the most important part of the assignment.

At the end of your notes and after thinking about what you read, write your own personal comments about what you read.

Please label this section after your notes by writing: “Personal Comments”

Do not write a summary of your notes. This should be more of a journal of your own thoughts.

Here are some suggestions as to what to include after the reading.

  1. What in your own life, did you relate to, after reading this chapter?
  2. Use your own personal experiences to apply what you read to your own life.
  3. What research study did you find interesting, new or maybe even confusing?
  4. Do you have any questions, that you’d like me to address in class?

This is a place where you can explore your own thoughts. Use this assignment to your advantage. Consider this as personal communication between you and the instructor.

part 1

Introduction

In many ways, living in the age of the internet is both a blessing and a curse. One thing that comes to mind is the quick access that we have to information. Some of this information is vetted, some of it is not. It is important to be prudent when going through resources, such as studies, new articles, etc. in order to ensure that we are receiving accurate information. This is true for all types of information, including information relating to nutrition, fitness, and sports.

Your Tasks

Task 1- Choose a topic

Choose a nutrition or physical activity/fitness topic that you would like to use for this discussion assignment. It can be anything!

Task 2- Search the Web

Next, you will conduct a search for information related to your topic. This could be anything from research articles, websites, blog posts, etc. Choose 2 pieces of information that you would like to perform the CRAAP test on.

Important! Please make sure to pick one resources that would pass the test, and one that would fail the test. Also, please make sure that each resource discusses a similar topic. For example, if your one resource talks about fiber, then your other resource would also have to discuss fiber.

Task 3- CRAAP Test

Go through each component of CRAAP for your two resources. As a reminder, the 5 components of CRAAP are: Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Note whether or not you think the resource meets each of these components.

Task 4- Original Post

Please address the following in your original post:

  1. What two resources are your comparing? Please provide links to these resources. (1 point for relevance to course, 2 points for articles [one for each article])
  2. Which resource passed the CRAAP test? How do you know that it fulfills each component? Explain. (4 points)
  3. Which resource did not pass the CRAAP test? Which components of the test were not fulfilled in this article? Explain. (4 points)
  4. How has this exercise changed the way in which you will view health articles and information? (5 points)
    • Ideas for this portion: resources that you were using to acquire health information prior to this assignment; the way you determined accurate information prior to this assignment; things that you learned after performing the CRAAP test; etc.

Task 5- Peer Response

Respond to at least 2 classmate’s posts. For this discussion I would like you to look at 2 students’ chosen resources. Then explain whether you agree or disagree about whether or not you agree that the resource passes/doesn’t pass CRAAP, and why.

part two



Introduction

We have learned this week that carbohydrates are a very important energy source, both for the average individual and for athletes. We have also learned that not all carbohydrates are the same and that some carbs confer more health benefits than others. In this discussion I would like us to further explore these different carbohydrates as it relates to athletes.

Your Tasks

Task 1- Research

First, I would like you to do some initial research related to the use of simple versus complex carbohydrates for athletic fueling and performance. Does the type of carbohydrate matter when it comes to energy production, prevention of fatigue, and etc.?

Task 2- Experiment

Next, we will act as our own test subjects! Keep in mind that you will need two separate days to do this. For this experiment you will need to do the following:

  1. Choose a meal that is made up primarily of simple carbohydrates.
  2. Consume this meal 3-4 hours before doing an endurance activity.
    • Note: the endurance activity is up to you. Examples: walking, jogging, swimming, hiking, riding a bike, using an elliptical, etc.
  3. Write down how you are feeling prior to engaging in the endurance activity.
  4. Perform the endurance activity.
  5. Write down how you felt while completing the endurance activity. Did you feel that this meal helped in giving you the energy you needed?
  6. Repeat the above steps on a different day using a meal made up primarily of complex carbs. Note any differences that you observe.

Task 3- Original Post

Please address the following in your original post:

  1. What conclusions did you draw from the research in Task 1? Does the type of carbohydrate matter for exercise performance? Explain.
  2. Share your findings from your experiment. Provide us with the following details:
    1. What did your simple carbohydrate meal contain? What did your complex carbohydrate meal contain?
    2. What differences in your energy and performance did you notice between these two meals? Did one type of meal give you more sustained energy than the other? Did this align with the conclusions from your research?

Task 4- Peer Response

Respond to at least 2 classmate’s posts. Were the conclusions from your research similar or different to theirs? Were you surprised with their experiment findings and/or were they similar/different to your own findings?

Module 3: Discussion 2

Watch the second link on informal fallacies:

Fallacy Examples (Links to an external site.)Fallacy Examples

Search the media for informal fallacies instances and post one by copying the URL.  Discuss the above examples and your own by writing a short  post. Respond to two classmates.

DISCUSSION:

sara yousif

One of the most prevalent informal fallacies presented in the media is the slippery slope fallacy. A slippery slope argument rejects a cause of action by insisting that it will trigger a chain of reactions that result in an undesirable end. For instance, the media in question uses the slippery slope fallacy to demonstrate how being kept on hold by the cable company triggers other events such as anger which creates the need for blowing off steam which results in an accident. This advertisement is meant to validate the use of direct TV by rejecting the use of cable. Additionally, the slippery slope argument can be observed when one makes a claim such as “Today late for ten minutes, tomorrow late for an hour, and then someday you will simply cease to show up.” This fallacy is associated with validating a series of events in the absence of direct evidence that they will occur.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/mar/04/how-trump-lambasted-obama-and-obama-trashed-trump (Links to an external site.)

Ad Hominem is one of the informal fallacy captured in the media. This fallacy occurs when one person inappropriately attacks another or an aspect of a person making the argument instead of addressing their position or opinion. For instance, instead of the interviewer – in the media addressing Obama’s decision on the restriction of nuclear weapons, he attacks him by comparing him to the kid on the block who would not retaliate after being punched in the face. Likewise, a person can disqualify Marx’s theories about an ideal society by arguing that he spent his entire life in a library. Lastly, ad hominem can also be direct to membership in an institution or a group. For instance, one can disqualify the idea of recycling simply because it was a suggestion from many hippie communists.

necolas

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/senate-bipartisanship-white_n_60d4d983e4b053314757c816 (Links to an external site.)

This news article criticized a bipartisan group of senators who came together within the last week in order to help pass an infrastructure deal. The writer observed that the senators in question represent states that “This group predominantly comes from states that are overwhelmingly white. In other words, states with large numbers of people of color and big cities were mostly left out of the discussion.” They go on to state that four of the senators “come from states that are among the top five whitest states in the nation.” The conclusion reached is that the bipartisan group “does not represent the diversity of the nation’s economy, needs and people.” However, the other six senators represent states which are, on average, as diverse as the rest of the United States. Three of the senators, in fact, represent states that are on average more diverse than the rest of the United States. I would classify this as an example of Missing the Point, as an illogical conclusion was drawn from the initial premise.

Of the examples provided in the video, I believe Hasty Generalizations and Appeal to False Authorities are the most commonplace in modern media. Celebrity endorsements for products are more prevalent than ever, and the celebrities in question often have little to nothing to with the product itself. Name recognition is more important than relevance to the product being sold. Hasty Generalizations allow for companies to associate their products with stereotypes, both negative and positive, which make their target message more memorable. Consumers already have a preconceived notion regarding a stereotype and make a logical leap to the ones companies are presenting in their commercials.

first part

This week you will be posting about one thing you learned about in Chapter 8. You just need to write a couple of sentences on it and describe what it is and why it is interesting. Here is the catch…you have to write about something that no one else has posted about yet! So the sooner you post, the easier it will be. Make sure you only talk about one topic (person, event, place, etc) so that there will be enough topics for the whole class! If you complete the assignment earlier, you will have more topics to choose from, and those will be easier to explain!

second part-

This assignment we are going to work on our Student Learning Outcomes. These are the things you are supposed to be able do when you finish this class. We have 3 of them!

1) Analyze primary and secondary sources and explain how they support a thesis statement

2) Explain relationships between the causes of historical events and their effects.

3) Describe a relevant individual involved in an historical event and explain his/her significance in this event.

1) Analyze primary and secondary sources (Links to an external site.) and explain how they support a thesis statement

This means a few things. First you have to understand what a primary and/or a secondary source is. And then understand what a thesis statement (Links to an external site.) is. Lastly, you should be able to see how a source supports (or does not support) a thesis statement. Here is a very basic example of a thesis statement: “The quality of life for many Americans during the Great Depression was very bad when compared to other generations.” A primary source that would support that statement would be a letter written by someone living in the 1930s that says “My life is terrible! It was sooooo much better in the 1920s, OMG! I have no job, my kids can’t eat and I am sick. I wish I could LOL but it is too hard!” Reading that, you would think they didn’t have a good life, and would say that letter supports you thesis statement.

2) Explain relationships between the causes of historical events and their effects.

This one perhaps is a little easier. For example, take Buddhism. Siddhartha Gautama sat beneath the famous tree and meditated and then he had an awakening. This was one of the causes of the creation of the religion known as Buddhism. One of the effects of it was that Buddhism became a very popular religion that is still practiced widely around the globe.

3) Describe a relevant individual involved in an historical event and explain his/her significance in this event.

Perhaps the easiest, and most of you have already done this in the short answers on our test. You just need to talk about a person and a historical event, and why that person was important to it. For example, “In 2021 the Padres won the World Series. Alan Renga played a significant role in this, because he struck out 89 batters and hit 8 home runs for the Padres.”

So for this assignment, I want you to pick one of the SLOs, describe it in your own words, and give an example from chapter 9 that shows you understand it! It is worth 10 points and is due Monday September 20th at 11:59

Commentary Essay

Students must watch one of the following videos (conferences or panels) related to debates and discussions around Decolonizing Global Health (the web links are at the end). You have to write a commentary essay about the topic covered in the video. You must take a stance on the topic and develop your commentary based on specific information from the video that was relevant and interesting for you about the topic. 

Your arguments must reflect your understanding and opinion about the topic, but you also need to support your arguments with literature. Therefore, you also need to include references to at least two readings from the syllabus. Because you will be trying to show your perspective and make a valid argument, referencing sources will be helpful and will help you to strengthen your perspective. 

The paper must contain a title, an introduction (state your thesis), a body (develop a well-argued commentary addressing your thesis), and a conclusion (bring all of the points you have made supporting your thesis).

Format. This paper is a 3-4 pages essay (not including references), 1.5 spaced, Times New Roman 12. The sources are cited and referred at the end of your paper correctly in APA style.

Some relevant considerations when writing a commentary essay:

Purpose: The purpose of commentary is not simply to report things but to give readers a way to make sense of them. A commentary will help you write critically about a topic and will help you analyze this topic within a larger societal context.

Audience: Your audience for this paper should have a stake in the topic. For example, if you discuss your understanding of Decolonizing Global Health, your audience could be Global Health organizations or Global Health Educators. If you are discussing Decolonizing the Health Care System, your audience could be health care providers or those who develop health policies.

Genre: For this paper, your genre is in the form of a commentary.

Stance: Your stance should be formal in that you are writing to an academic audience who will be making meaning of your topic. However, you may use the pronoun “I” to discuss your position.

Give readers something to react to, think about, or use to make sense of the topic.

You will not take a neutral stance; you have a perspective.

You are attempting to analyze and explain what is going on about that topic.

You are asking your readers to consider one possible way of making sense of what has happened in the past and what is going on in the present.

Approach your readers as co-thinkers, you are asking them to look at the world from your perspective (whether they ultimately agree with you or not). Even through your perspective, you must negotiate differences fairly but maintain a well-argued position.

This week you have two questions for your discussion board:

First, this week, I asked you to complete a 5-minute meditation with me. So, I would like to hear from you how it went! Was it easy or hard? Were you able to create spaces between your thoughts when you just focused on your breath? What could be some benefits to meditation? And how do you think it helps Buddhists achieve greater awareness of the world and eventually enlightenment?

Second, last week you heard the story of Siddhartha Gautama – the prince who lived a life of complete hedonism, then renounced it all to find enlightenment. This story is central to Buddhism, but many devout Buddhists say that it’s probably not “true” in a historical sense, and that whether or not the story actually happened doesn’t even matter.

For them, the story is important because it teaches an important truth about how to live one’s life – one shouldn’t live completely for pleasure and oneself, but also one shouldn’t deny themselves everything. Neither of these paths leads to enlightenment. One should follow the example of the Buddha, even if he wasn’t a real historical figure.

Can a myth be important even if it’s not historically true? Can you think of any other examples of stories or myths in religion or society that are probably not actually true, but are important nonetheless?

This is connected to another central idea of Buddhism, which is the rejection of blind belief. The Buddha taught that you shouldn’t believe anything unless it has proven to be true for yourself. He told his disciples never to believe his teachings, but to try it out for themselves and see if it helps them find greater calm and clarity in their lives.

Is this an appropriate attitude for a religion? Or should a religious tradition include some sense of faith or trust in the tradition/teacher that they don’t question EVERYTHING a religious authority figure says?

Your initial response must be at least 250 words and does NOT NEED TO include two direct quotations from the reading, because this week’s discussion is more about your own ideas.

Module 1, Discussion 4, Chapter 2: Subjective Relativism

No unread replies.No replies.

Module 2, Discussion 2:

Please discuss the topic Subjective Relativism which is an epistemological issue. Question: What’s wrong with being a subjective relativist, in your view?

Please read the chapter two information on subjective relativism and watch the video. Attached you will find some additional information on this topic that addresses the related Ethical Relativism issue. Be sure to understand the distinction between them. We will return to this topic later on in Chapter 11.Create your post and respond to two classmates.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=518FR6SbY_k

POST 1

Subjective relativism is the action of something being approved by one person, but it may be disapproved by another. Not everyone will agree and approve of behavior at the same time, at the space place. Every person has their own beliefs and morality of what they believe is right. We can not impose what we believe on what others believe in. Each individual has a different morality and most do not have the same rightness from wrong actions. For example, in the video, the speaker states, ” people say everything is relative, even truth…” This inference is wrong because truth to an individual might not be true for another.

In my opinion, it is not best to be a subjective relativist because every individual has their own beliefs and what they think is right or wrong. Not everyone is going to like being told something is one way or the other. Something I feel is right of doing; another individual might find it is a bad idea.

POST 2

Subjective Relativism

Subjective relativism refers to the view that a given act is morally acceptable if someone approves it to be correct. In a philosophical context, it declares that a person has authority over their moral life. Every individual is said to be the source of their moral principles in life (Merlo & Pravato, 2020). In this reasoning, people have the right to decide on what they view as wrong or right.

In subject relativism, an act can either be right or wrong. Therefore, it means action can be right for a particular person but be wrong for another person. Individuals who believe in subject relativism justify this by different mechanisms (Merlo & Pravato, 2020). They argue that the constitution entitles them to freedom. It entails the freedom of conscience. All individuals have the right to think and make a reasonable conclusion on ethical and social issues without anyone objecting to them to do so.

In my view, relativists are wrong as the wrongness or rightness of a situation is determined by a person or individual cultures. Relativists do not believe in making errors because they conclude their moral rightness or wrongness based on their opinions. As a result, individuals contrast in moral opinions to those put in place by society. Therefore, they oppose moral absoluteness. Some actions may be regarded as ethically right in particular cultures, and they may be ethically wrong in others. Individuals are left to decide on their moral life and moral principles regardless of what some cultures dictate. Such individuals may justify actions seen as inhuman by some communities, but they are okay with the actions. In my opinion, good morals will exist only in societies that allow a breed of many cultures in place to determine the rightness or wrongness of a situation.

Thus far, we have focused primarily on the Reading Process.  Now, it’s time to transition to the Writing Process.  We will be working on Project 1 for the next two weeks.  We will take this first essay step-by-step and review all parts of the writing process.  If you are well-versed in writing academic essays then great — this will be a chance for you to polish your skills!  And if you are new to academic writing or it’s been a while, then have no fear — we will be breaking down this essay step by step.

Project #1: Illustration Essay

  • What shapes my identity?
  • How do others shape my identity?
  • What is a community?
  • What does it mean to be a member of a community?
  • What communities do I belong to, and how have these communities shaped my identity? 
  • How is my community inclusive, and also exclusive?
  • What does it mean to be outside a community, to be other? 
  • Why is a community important? 

Unit 1 Texts

  • My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today by various authors
  • “The Danger of a Single Story” by Chimamanda Adichie (TED Talk)
  • “There is More to the Nuclear Family, Even Now” by Mandy Len Catron (article, Atlantic Magazine)
  • “Alone” by Maya Angelou (poem)
  • “If They Should Come for Us” by Fatimah Asghar (poem)
  • “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” by Ursula Le Guin (allegorical short story)

Project 1 Guidelines

Project 1 is an illustration essay.  To ILLUSTRATE is to use vivid examples to support your main point. In a written essay, examples will often serve to illustrate a general statement (in this case, your thesis)

Based on our Unit 1 texts and your own personal and social context, provide a comprehensive and nuanced definition of what “community” means to you and then illustrate it with vivid examples.  Your definition of community will serve as your thesis statement.  You will then support your argument with insightful claims and supporting evidence.  This is not a research essay.  Your evidence should consist of your own vivid personal examples and wisely chosen quotations from at least one (1) of our Unit 1 texts.  At the end of the essay, include a Works Cited page (the Works Cited page is not included in the page count).

Consider the different strategies and examples that our Unit 1 writers (particularly Adichie and Catron) use to illustrate their arguments.  Use their texts as models of writers using vivid examples to illustrate and support their thesis.

Please watch these video on informal fallacies and discuss these questions. Requires and initial post and two responses to classmates.  Links appear below and in “Files”.

Fallacies in Hillary Clinton’s anti-Trump speech PT. 1 (Links to an external site.)Fallacies in Hillary Clinton's anti-Trump speech PT. 1

Samuel Ziegler

1. There are certainly fallacies that I would have spotted, especially in the advertisements, because I suppose I already expect them to be present there, and therefore actively process them in a way that reveals the fallacies. There are also plenty I would not have spotted especially in the political speeches. They go by very quickly in some instances, and there are even multiple at a time, which makes it very difficult to spot them. Also, there are just fallacies I was not aware of beforehand that I am aware of now.

2. I would say there are. The videos make reference to the different types of fallacies that show up, and there are ones brought up that we did not go over (although of course they could also just be referred to with a different name in this case). These include poisoning the well, presupposition, and appeal to accomplishment.

3. I would say that the average person is not aware of how prevalent informal fallacies are in everyday life, or their power to persuade. Part of that is just a lack of education and information, most people will probably never learn about specific fallacies which would help them to spot them. Also, the power to persuade is probably underestimated by those who think that things such as advertisements don’t persuade them, when in reality informal fallacies do in fact impact them at some level

Sara Yousif

Were there fallacies that you, yourself, would have spotted or would not have spotted?

As discussed earlier in class, fallacies are errors in reasoning. In an event where a fallacy occurs accidentally, it is referred to as an error of reasoning. On the other hand, in a situation where a writer or a speaker uses a fallacy to manipulate or deceive his audience, it is called a trick of reasoning. The videos in question capture both a number of fallacies that I could have and could not have spotted. For instance, I could have spotted the slippery slope fallacy which appears in the first video. Likewise, I could have spotted the ad hominem fallacy which appears towards the end of the same video. On the other hand, I could not have spotted the black or white fallacy captured in the second video on Trump´s campaign announcement speech.

Were there fallacies beyond the ones we studied?

Not only have the clips captured the fallacies we discussed in class, but also the ones we have not covered. For instance, the first clip has captured the post hoc, ergo propter hoc fallacy which I encountered for the first time. Likewise, the second clip has discussed the anecdotal and the straw man fallacies which were not discussed in class.

The Knowledge of Average People on the Prevalence of Fallacies and their Power to Persuade

Having established that informal fallacies take many forms and are widespread in everyday discourse, it would be difficult for an average person to spot them and acknowledge their prevalence since their perception of statements or phrases is from a face value point of view. They frequently include the introduction of extraneous material into an argument or are founded on assumptions that, when tested, show to be wrong. Additionally, average people do not pay so much attention to the intentions of these statements or phrases, which robs them off the ability to identify the power of persuasion that they hold.

Reflective Essay. Students will write a six-page reflective essay focused on their stance on the debates about Decolonizing Global Health. It will be essential to consider the discussions held during the quarter for this assignment. The essay must include at least four references from our syllabus. The objective is to develop an introspective posture in analyzing your academic trajectory and future career and how you make sense of it in the face of Decolonial approaches.

Consider these ideas to develop your essay. Think about the following questions to start your reflective process. Read these questions and answer them. It does not have to be in proper essay form or perfect sentences yet. You want to get as many ideas down as possible to write your reflective essay.

-What have you learned about Decolonizing?

-How do you understand the tension between the global north and the global south?

-How can we overcome this tension in science?

-How can you overcome this tension in your personal and academic trajectories? Can this have a place in your daily life?

-Can you relate some of the discussions held in class with your personal life experiences, academic experiences, or the future of your career?

-Which experiences come to your mind, and how do you relate them to the discussions held in class about decolonizing?

-Looking back, what would you have done differently if you were exposed to the debates about decolonizing earlier in your career?

-How do you define your stance or positionality regarding decolonial approaches?

-What has led you to this stance/positionality? Which experiences in your life have shaped or are shaping this stance?

-Which are some takeaways from this course?

-How could you integrate some of these takeaways into your professional development?

Before you can begin writing your essay, you need to decide the most important thing you learned about Decolonizing. That “most important thing” will be the thesis of your paper. Consider the following ideas to develop the sections of your essay:

Introduction. 10 points

Your reflective essay must begin with an introduction that contains both a hook and a thesis statement. The point of having a ‘hook’ is to grab the attention of your audience or reader from the very beginning. It would be best to portray the exciting aspects of your perspective in the initial paragraph so that you stand the best chances of holding your reader’s interest. The thesis statement summarizes the focus of the essay, which is what is the most important thing you have learned about decolonizing and what you would like to do with that.

Body. 70 points

Next up is planning the body of your essay. You can draw on the following tips to help you do this well:

Try adopting a chronological approach. This means working through everything you want to touch upon as it happened in time. This kind of approach will ensure that your work is systematic and coherent. Remember that a reflective essay does not necessarily have to be linear, but working chronologically will prevent you from providing a haphazard recollection of your experience. Layout the critical elements of your experience in a timeline – this will help you see how to piece your narrative together.

Ensure the body of your reflective essay is well focused and contains appropriate critique and reflection. The body should not only summarise your experience; it should explore the impact that the experience has had on your life and the lessons that you have learned as a result. The emphasis should generally be on reflection as opposed to summation. A reflective posture will not only provide readers with insight into your experience but will also highlight your personality and your ability to deal with or adapt to particular situations.

Conclusion. 10 points

In the conclusion of your reflective essay, you should focus on bringing your piece together. Summarize the points made throughout and what you have learned as a result. What can be concluded about your approach to the decolonial perspectives? What might you do differently in the future after learning about decolonial perspectives?

This assignment we are going to work on our Student Learning Outcomes. These are the things you are supposed to be able do when you finish this class. We have 3 of them!

1) Analyze primary and secondary sources and explain how they support a thesis statement

2) Explain relationships between the causes of historical events and their effects.

3) Describe a relevant individual involved in an historical event and explain his/her significance in this event.

1) Analyze primary and secondary sources (Links to an external site.) and explain how they support a thesis statement

This means a few things. First you have to understand what a primary and/or a secondary source is. And then understand what a thesis statement (Links to an external site.) is. Lastly, you should be able to see how a source supports (or does not support) a thesis statement. Here is a very basic example of a thesis statement: “The quality of life for many Americans during the Great Depression was very bad when compared to other generations.” A primary source that would support that statement would be a letter written by someone living in the 1930s that says “My life is terrible! It was sooooo much better in the 1920s, OMG! I have no job, my kids can’t eat and I am sick. I wish I could LOL but it is too hard!” Reading that, you would think they didn’t have a good life, and would say that letter supports you thesis statement.

2) Explain relationships between the causes of historical events and their effects.

This one perhaps is a little easier. For example, take Buddhism. Siddhartha Gautama sat beneath the famous tree and meditated and then he had an awakening. This was one of the causes of the creation of the religion known as Buddhism. One of the effects of it was that Buddhism became a very popular religion that is still practiced widely around the globe.

3) Describe a relevant individual involved in an historical event and explain his/her significance in this event.

Perhaps the easiest, and most of you have already done this in the short answers on our test. You just need to talk about a person and a historical event, and why that person was important to it. For example, “In 2021 the Padres won the World Series. Alan Renga played a significant role in this, because he struck out 89 batters and hit 8 home runs for the Padres.”

So for this assignment, I want you to pick one of the SLOs, describe it in your own words, and give an example from chapter 9 that shows you understand it! It is worth 10 points and is due Monday September 20th at 11:59

For this discussion post, please answer each of the following questions. In responding, please present your answers thoroughly (one word, or extremely short answers will not suffice; each answer should generally be one paragraph in length).

  1. Of all the topics covered in this course, which did you find the most interesting? What about this topic made it the most interesting for you? In your answer, please describe any economics terms you use, in language that is simple enough that someone who hasn’t taken economics can understand. (For example, if you said you enjoyed GDP, then in your answer you would need to describe what the GDP is.)
  2. Of all the topics covered in this course, which did you enjoy the least? What was it about this topic that caused it to be your least favorite (presentation, topic in general, etc)? In your answer, please describe any economics terms you use, in language that is simple enough that someone who hasn’t taken economics can understand.
  3. In what way(s) has this course changed any of your perceptions about the field of economics (and/or specifically macroeconomics)? What additional questions do you have that were not fully addressed this semester? Since beginning this course, what are some of the ways you’ve seen economics in everyday life? (This may include the news, books, video game mechanics, etc).

In answering the above, you will not be graded on your opinion (in other words, you are free to say you liked/did not like anything – there’s no right or wrong answer). Rather, your answers will be graded for proper spelling, grammar, and care of thought put into fully answering the questions. For extra credit for reading these instructions thoroughly, write the word “purple” at the start of your answer to question three above. Do not reference why you are doing so. Generally, each answer above should be about a paragraph in length (approximately 3 – 5 sentences). Feel free to also post comments on your classmates’ postings as well (you will get to see them after posting your own)!

SOCIAL MEDIA’S INFLUENCE ON RELATIONSHIPS

Purpose:   In 1961, Marshall McLuhan wrote that the medium is the message. By this, McLuhan meant that the medium by which communication occurs, such as the telephone, the television, or handwriting, is more influential in shaping one’s understanding of a message than the content of the message itself. McLuhan concluded that the same message content communicated over different media, such as television, radio, and printed material, would be interpreted differently by message receivers.

Remember that during the early 1960s, when McLuhan explained the relationship between media and their effects on understanding, television itself was a new medium whose effects were not fully understood. McLuhan believed that understanding the effects of a medium and the public’s ability to adapt to a new medium or technology took 20 years.

We are now facing new communication and, particularly, social media technologies whose effects we do not yet know. You have likely already felt the impact of increasing communication technologies in your own life.

And with the advent of Covid-19 we have been introduced to even more technology, namely “zooming”. 

Directions: 

Answer the following questions regarding social media.  If you do not use much social media, you can still answer how not using it affects your relationships.

Questions

  1. How have your relationships developed differently via use of social media, such as Facebook/Snapchat, Instagram, and even zoom? What are the benefits of social media tools for relationship management? What are the drawbacks?
  2. What impact does social media have on self-disclosure? How does increased or decreased self-disclosure impact your relationships with those on social media?
  3. Given that social media is largely image-driven, what impact does social media have on your perception of the way that others live their lives? Do you perceive others as relating to you in the same way as before? Or do you believe others’ lives are very different than yours?  How has zooming affected your education, social life and family life?

Deliverable – Discussion 6: Rembrandt vs. Caravaggio (Contextual Analysis)

This is painting by Rembrandt titled "Return of the Prodigal Son"

This is a painting by Caravaggio titled "Young Sick Bacchus".jpg

Rembrandt, Prodigal Son, Oil on Canvas, 1661-69          Caravaggio, Young Sick Bacchus, Oil on Canvas, 1593

Overview

People who lived at the height of the Baroque period, during the 16th century, witnessed the emergence of several of the greatest artists in the history of Western art. In Italy, the artist Bernini was the driving force for a new type of figurative sculpture that was filled with energy and drama. Likewise, his Italian counterpart in painting, Caravaggio, created images that were filled with down-to-earth realism and dramatic use of light.  In fact, artists across Europe began to embrace Baroque form and content in their work. These include the Flemish painter Rubens, the Spanish painter Velasquez, and Dutch painters Vermeer and Rembrandt.

Rembrandt and Caravaggio are considered to be two of the greatest and most influential painters in the history of Western art. Both created their work during the Baroque period, but each artist was from a different geographical region and each was driven to create by different social forces and for different personal reasons. Consider these issues as you write your Discussion post.

Your Assignment

In this Discussion, you will post a 550-750 word analysis in which you will compare the work of Caravaggio and Rembrandt, then evaluate and explain which of these two artists you find to be more powerful or moving. You will justify your opinions based on key ideas and concepts from the reading and videos, as well as your own observations, ideas and insights.

This Discussion is worth 100 points. Please read the instructions and Grading Rubric before you begin.

Due Date

  • Your initial Discussion post is due by Sunday, Nov. 7 at 11:59 p.m
  • Your responses to posts by at least two different classmates is due by Sunday, Nov. 14 at 11:59 p.m.

You must post in the Discussion before you can read your classmates’ posts.

Instructions and Grading Criteria

Before you begin, review the reading and study guides for pages 294-298 of Artforms. Also, be sure to read the Summary of Critical Theories. This assignment combines elements of all three types of critical theories/approaches (Formal, Contextual, Expressive), with emphasis on Contextual Analysis.

Important! Approach this discussion as you would if you were writing a college paper. In other words, don’t just start writing in the discussion board without having a plan. I recommend that you open a Word document and write a polished 550-750 word paper, then copy and paste this into your discussion post. 

Step One: Watch the Videos (listed below)

Watch each of the excellent videos, at the bottom of this page, to gain a solid understanding about the life and work of Baroque artists Rembrandt and Caravaggio. Watch enough of the videos so that you understand the primary personal and social forces that drove each of these artists to create. As you watch each video, do the following:

  • Take notes about the key ideas and concepts that directly relate to what you will need to write about in each paragraph of your essay, explained in Step Two. Include your own ideas and insights.
  • Identify and list a few works by each artist that you find to be the most powerful and/or moving.
  • Based on what you have learned, select your favorite artist.

Step Two: Post in the Class Discussion

Your post is worth 80 possible points

Write a 550-750 word analysis in which you compare the work of Caravaggio and Rembrandt, then evaluate and explain which of these two artists you find to be more powerful or moving. Organize your analysis into four paragraphs, listed below, and follow the instructions. It may be helpful to use headings. 

At the beginning of each paragraph, write a concise topic sentence that clearly states what the paragraph is about. This topic sentence will help frame the controlling argument for each paragraph and will help your reader follow your key ideas.

Paragraph One: Subject and Overall Style

This paragraph should be between  100-150 words.

Post an image of a painting by both Rembrandt and Caravaggio.

Briefly state and describe the subject of each painting, then summarize and explain how each is a good example of the artist’s overall style and approach to painting. 

Paragraph Two: Personal and Social Context

This paragraph should be between 150-200 words.

Summarize and explain the primary personal and social forces that motivated each artist to approach their work in such a unique and powerful way. 

  • What was happening in each of the artists’ personal lives?
  • What was happening in the society around them?
  • Who were their patrons? Who commissioned their work and why?
  • How do these factors impact the meaning conveyed in the paintings you posted?

Refer to the notes that you took while watching each video. Focus on the key ideas and concepts from the videos. You will not need to refer to other sources from the internet. 

Paragraph Three: Stylistic Similarities and Differences

This paragraph should be between 150-200 words.

The religious and/or social developments that occurred during the Baroque period are reflected in the formal style (visual and formal characteristics) of each artist’s work.

In this paragraph, summarize and explain the most important similarities and differences between Rembrandt’s style (Holland) and Caravaggio’s style (Italy). The reading and study guides for pages 294-298 of Artforms will help reinforce what you learn from the videos.

Support your key points with descriptive references to the visual and formal characteristics in each of the works of art you posted. Again, refer to the notes that you took while watching each video. Focus on the key ideas and concepts from the videos and not on other sources from the internet. 

Paragraph Four: Preference and Evaluation

This paragraph should be between 150-200 words.

State your preference. Then, evaluate and thoroughly explain why you prefer the work of the artist you selected over that of the other artist. Support your reasoning with direct references to the artist and painting you selected.

You may wish to consider the following:

  • What initial ideas or feelings come to mind after experiencing the work of art?
  • Do you identify with the work? Based on your life experiences, is it personally relevant to you?
  • What is it about the work of art that you like the most? The message? The way it was made or composed? 
  • Are you engaged by the formal characteristics, such as the way the artist used light, color, texture, space, scale, etc?
  • Do you think your experience of the work is the same as what the artist intended?

Step Three: Respond to Two Classmates

Each post is worth 10 possible points (20 points total)

Next, review the posts of your classmates. Post a thorough and cogent response to a post by two different classmates (at least 100 words each). Add a new insight to the discussion that helps the reader better understand the work of Rembrandt and Caravaggio. Consider the following:

  • Do you agree with your classmate’s analysis and interpretation? Why or why not?
  • Did they leave out something important? If you think so, introduce this to the discussion.
  • Did you find something interesting in the post, but you don’t fully understand? Politely ask them to clarify for you.

I’m working on a communications discussion question and need support to help me learn.

Aaron Bell of AdRoll: The Truth May Hurt, but It Also HealsBy Adam BryantThis interview with Aaron Bell, C.E.O. of AdRoll, an online advertising placement firm, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.Q. Tell me about your early years.A. I grew up near Seattle in Bellevue, and I was a precocious, nerdy kid drawn to computers at an early age. I started playing around with programs and creating my own games. Eventually my neighbor took notice of me. He had a software company, and they developed Christmas software, with screen savers and games.So I was a Jewish boy creating a Santa’s workshop and games where you fly reindeer around. I loved it. My dad would pick me up after middle school and drive me to work in Redmond nearby.In a bit of serendipity, Microsoft was two blocks down the street. And they were hungry for engineers, gobbling up talent whenever they could find it. They started pulling people from my neighbor’s company to work for Microsoft. And as more people left, I took on more responsibility at this software company. Pretty soon, I was leading the Christmas software project. I was 14 years old.As the people I worked with went to Microsoft, they then told the company about me, and suddenly I was interviewing at Microsoft when I was 16. They asked programming questions, but they also asked interview questions like “How do you know the light goes off in the refrigerator when you close the door?”Daily business updates The latest coverage of business, markets and the economy, sent by email each weekday. Get it sent to your inbox.I had a baby sister, so I said, “I would put my baby sister in the refrigerator and then pull her out and check the dilation of her eyes.” They said, “That’s morbid, but it’s pretty clever,” and they hired me.I spent about six years at Microsoft. I was able to work it out with my high school where classes would end at noon for me and then I’d go to Microsoft and try to stay within the labor laws for hours worked. During the summers, I would transition to intern and take advantage of those programs.

I did manage to spend some time with Bill Gates. Every summer he would have a barbecue for the interns. After being there for so many summers, I figured out the pattern. He would come out of his house and go right to the dinner line. So I would wait by the door, and when he came out, I’d get in the dinner line with him. That way, I’d get to sit next to him, too.Tell me about the culture of your company now.I have this overall philosophy that a company is like a human body, which builds up toxins over time. Every company has problems and issues that build up, and you need to find outlets for those things.I think a lot about how you come up with different practices in the company that are a kind of cleanse. So we do a weekly all-hands meeting, and it’s a weekly flush to get the toxins out.Before our all-hands meetings, I send out an email with a question-and-answer board and I encourage people to post their questions. You can vote up your favorite questions, and they’re anonymous.If you give someone a mask, they’ll tell you the truth. I also encourage people to post their fears, their uncertainties and doubts. And there’s a guarantee that any question that is asked will get answered or addressed by me, unless they are personal in nature about someone in particular.The alternative, if you don’t do that, is that you have people behind closed doors chatting about the company, gossiping, saying negative things.If you address everything, people feel much more trust. They feel like they know what’s happening. And they’re going to make better decisions because they know what’s going on.What else?After you’ve been at AdRoll for six months, you have to write a letter to yourself as a new employee about what you wish you had known and had been taught. Then we compile those, and new hires get a 100-page book of these letters. It encourages people to really help each other out.How do you hire? What questions do you ask?There’s no silver bullet question, but I usually advise my employees to ask themselves about the person they’re interviewing: “What is the No. 1 thing you’re worried about?

When you leave the interview, what are you going to be thinking about or wondering about?”Then I tell them to spend all their time drilling into that one area. Keep asking questions. It’s O.K. to prod during interviews.I also like to look at transitions between jobs, because that’s a time when someone kind of popped their head up and said, “This isn’t working for me.” Either they got fired or it was mutually not working or there is some other explanation, but I’ll try to get the real story of what happened.For a company at our stage of growth, I’d also say it’s really important to find people who are interested in building something great, rather than people who are interested in joining something great. So having people who care is a big thing.So how do you tell the drivers from the riders?In those transitions on their résumé, you can understand a lot of things. If they talk about problems at a previous company, then the question is, Were you part of the solution or are you just complaining about it?What career advice do you give to new college grads?I definitely suggest people work for early stage or midstage companies because you’re going to learn a lot more. I try to steer them away from larger companies. The company is going through more change at smaller companies, and you tend to be in a deeper end of the pool where things are going to get done. So it’s just more of an extension of college. There’s accelerated learning in that period.Each week, Adam Bryant talks with top executives about leadership. 

  1. Aaron said that in his interview for a job with Microsoft he was asked this question: “How do you know the light goes off in the refrigerator when you close the door?” His answer is … creative. How might you answer this question?
  2. How was it Aaron was able to have lunch with Bill Gates? Is this an appropriate strategy or is it manipulative?
  3. Aaron says “If you give someone a mask, they’ll tell you the truth. ” What does he mean?
  4. How is Aaron’s management style different than that of Jimmy Dunne III, the subject of  the earlier Discussion Board?  Which management style do you prefer?

Overview:

Self-care is defined as “actions an individual might take in order to reach optimal physical and mental health” (GoodTherapy, 2019). Engaging in activities that you view as self-care should make you feel relaxed, rejuvenated or energized, rather than depleted, depressed, angry, or defeated.  Self-care might seem selfish, however several studies show that individuals who engage in practices of self-care are more resilient and better able to cope with everyday challenges. Cultures also interpret and define self-care differently. What may be defined as self-care in one culture may seem like a burden in another. Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation to engage in self-care, even with all of these positive benefits. Therefore, it is especially important to have a self-care plan when we are in the midst of a global pandemic, economic crisis, and renewed interest in dismantling systemic oppression. 

Instructions

  1. In your own words, what does self-care mean? 
  2. How does your CULTURE define self-care?
  3. Growing up, how was self-care viewed within your family (did your parents practice self-care or talk to you about self-care)?
  4. Think of your weekly routine and describe what you do for self-care. If you don’t do anything, please state this.
  5. What are 2 things you want to start doing for self-care? Explain why you chose these and how you think it will help you achieve optimal physical and/or mental well-being. 
  6. How can you motivate yourself to engage in self-care? Discuss 2-3 ways you will motivate yourself moving forward

part two 

Instructions:

Please read the following scenario:

Myeshia, a clinical psychologist, is interested in examining the mental well-being of individuals who have had a close family member pass away from COVD-19. Since there is very little research on mental health in the midst of a pandemic, Myeshia decides that the best way to conduct this study is by conducting  focus groups and comparing and contrasting the similarities and differences in the grief experience among participants from different racial/ethnic backgrounds. Myeshia uses obituaries  and social media posts to recruit participants who identify as Asian, White, Black/African American and LatinX by telling them they are invited to participate in a study on coping during COVID. After she has recruited enough participants, Myeshia held 4 focus groups. Participants in the focus groups were from all different racial/ethnic groups (mixed-race focus groups). After participants come into the lab, Myeshia explains the purpose of the focus group is to discuss how everyone is coping with their mental and physical health during COVID and starts audio recording the focus group. About halfway through the focus groups Myeshia starts asking about how the participants are coping with losing someone in their family to COVID. A few participants are immediately upset and ask Myeshia how she knew they had family that passed away and complained that they were unaware this would be a topic in the focus group. Myeshia continues asking about the grieving and funeral process and one participant becomes visibly upset. The participant exclaims that she cannot answer the questions Myeshia is asking because in her culture, grief looks much different. Myeshia does not ask the participant to explain what she means and instead goes to the next question. Another participant asks if they can leave because they are feeling distressed talking about their grief. Myeshia says no and tells them they are not “allowed” to leave. Throughout the focus group, Myeshia notices that two of the participants didn’t say a word. When the focus group is over, Myeshia approaches the participants to ask why they didn’t participate and learns that English is their second language and they were having trouble understanding more of the questions.

After reading the scenarios, please answer the following questions:

  1. What is Myeshia’s research question?
  2. What type of question is it (descriptive, causal, consequence, or nondirective)
  3. Is the research quantitative or qualitative study? Explain why you chose this method
  4. How do the ethical guidelines for conducting APA research (Links to an external site.) relate to cross-cultural research in psychology?
  5. Discuss 2 specific principles that might be difficult to address when conducting research with participants from different cultures.
  6. Identify at least two things that would not be considered ethical in the above study and provide suggestions for ways to make the study more ethical. Be sure to use terms from the readings/videos.
  7. Now think about how this study might look if it was conducted in two different countries. Based on your readings and videos, what are some ethical issues a psychologist will need to consider?
  8. Reply to a classmate about their suggestions for #3 above. Do you agree/disagree with the analysis? Provide any suggestions you may have.

Module 2 Discussion 3, Chapter 4: Discuss Crop Circles

55 unread replies.55 replies.

Directions: Review Chapter 4 and 10 readings. Write a Post on your thoughts regarding crop circles. Evaluate the topic by elements in our Chapter 4, such as “experts, evidence, resisting contrary evidence, fooling ourselves, claims in the news”; and Chapter 10 “warning signs about bogus science”. Respond to two classmates as well.

You might read an online article to get more ideas on how you feel about these entities. Here are some:

https://www.livescience.com/26540-crop-circles.html (Links to an external site.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_circle (Links to an external site.)

https://www.astrobio.net/alien-life/the-physics-of-crop-circles/ (Links to an external site.)

Crop Circle Mystery | National Geographic (Links to an external site.)Crop Circle Mystery | National Geographic

Crop circles in California: Giant circles appear in Salinas Valley, California, USA (Links to an external site.)Crop circles in California:  Giant circles appear in Salinas Valley, California, USA

Student one

In my view, it is essential to apply critical thinking in assessing the crop circles phenomenon. Chapter 4 of the text contends that it is vital to differentiate experts from non-experts (Vaughn, 2018). After making such a distinction, it is plausible to believe arguments made by experts given that they are more knowledgeable on a particular subject. In this instance, experts suggest that crop circles were made in the 1970s and 1980s by David Chorley and his friend Doug Bowers. In my opinion, that is a more accurate description of the crop circles phenomenon.

In this case, one can often fall into the temptation of believing popular conspiracies trying to explain the crop circles. For instance, there were claims of UFOs being seen in the area. Given that people have heard similar claims in the news, they will fall into the trap of confirmation bias. Even so, it is critical to evaluate the evidence offered to back up the claims to avoid fooling ourselves. In the case of the crop circles, the evidence provided for the presence of aliens and UFOs is not convincing. Hence, it is not plausible to believe people who base their arguments on such claims.

Given that claims of UFOs were not valid, there must have been another explanation for the crop circles. It took the efforts of scientists to determine that the crop circles were made by farmers in the night. Notably, the farmers remained secretive about the process of making the crop circles. As a result, many theories sprung up to explain their origin. Chapter 10 delves into the signs associated with bogus science (Vaughn, 2018). The allegations of UFOs and aliens are an example of bogus science. That is because the evidence offered has not been tested using a scientific method. 

Student two

There appears to be three primary theories behind the existence and formation of crop circles. These three theories are naturally occurring wind vortices, extraterrestrial intervention, and human-created hoaxes. The wind vortices theory postulates that small whirlwinds of electrified air are responsible for the intricate crop circle designs, and experts have been able to create similar instances in carefully-controlled environments. However, there is no evidence that these laboratory created wind vortices have ever occurred in nature or are possible to replicate in nature. By using the TEST formula, this first theory also fails. It does not have any evidence of occurring in nature, alternative theories are stronger (namely hoaxes), and it is an overly elaborate and inadequate explanation of crop circles.

Aliens being the cause of crop circles fares even worse against the TEST formula. There is no reputable sources of alien life either existing or having visited Earth. The existence of aliens conflicts with all known scientific experts, there are no credible experts in disagreement with one another regarding their existence, and their existence conflicts with claims we already have good reason to accept. While it is a popular theory due to it’s extraordinary nature and presence in the news media, it does not follow the rules of thumb of critical thinking nor adequately stand up to the TEST formula.

The final, and most likely theory, is that humans created crop circles. Their elaborate forms, location near populated and easily accessible farmlands, and formulation under the cover of night all support this theory. Additionally, numerous hoaxers have confessed to having created crop circles already. It is the simplest theory, consistent with the evidence, and is the only theory amongst it’s alternatives that stands up to any scrutiny. The other two theories are based in ambiguous language and speculation, while the human hoax theory has verifiable facts supporting it.

1) Describe the trajectory of what happens in the textbook chapter, “From Sea to Shining Sea.” How does the term “Manifest Destiny” relate to the chapter? Be sure to provide specific examples from the textbook.

2) How does your K-12 education relate to (or differ from) the experiences mentioned in Lim’s article “Educating Elementary School Students on California Missions”? What “myths” does Lim discuss in the article? What solution(s) is provided?

3) According to the article “The San Diego Mission and Kumeyaay Revolt: A Decolonized Mission Project,” what happened during the Kumeyaay revolt? Also, how exactly was the author’s daughter’s modern-day 4th grade mission project “decolonizing” or an example of decolonization?

4) In the article “What the ‘California Dream’ Means to Indigenous Peoples,” how does the author define the “California Dream”? What does the “California Dream” mean to Indigenous peoples? What solution does the author suggest?

Reply

  1. In the textbook chapter, “From Sea to Shining Sea” the trajectory that is occurring describes the U.S. Colonization of Northern Mexico, how it affected those who originated from the land before the United States conquering the land, and the overall treatment of the natives of California during the Spanish Colonization, along with the Mission Systems. As Mexico and Spain individually gained their independence, the United States saw this as an opportunity to conquer Northern Mexico as they were currently at their weaker point. The term “Manifest Dynasty” was described in the textbook when it explained “The two-year invasion and occupation of Mexico was a joyful experience for most US citizens” (Dunbar-Ortiz 130). The people of the U.S were able to conquer the land as they wanted, and with their success it could have been described as “manifestation”.
  2. In Lim’s article “Educating Elementary School Students on California Missions”, the author of the article seemed to be displeased with the education that her daughter was receiving, as she felt that they were being taught misconceptions and inaccurately describing the experiences of the natives. Lim explained how she felt that the material she was taught as a student was almost identical to her daughter’s, implying that it was outdated, and students were not being educated on current world issues of today. I feel that when I was younger, I was in a similar position to Lim’s daughter. During my K-12 years of education, most of the time I had not been learning any history that I felt was relevant to today’s society. However, I did notice that in a number of my courses as a younger student, we would be studying from newer, updated versions of textbooks, which gives me confidence that I was learning accurate information. One of the “myths” Lim discusses in the article is that California Indians were uncivilized. Lim explains “California Indians were considered uncivilized because they looked different, had different religious beliefs and languages, and did not appear to have building structures, governing authorities, and agricultural practices” (Lim 17). This label allowed the Europeans to satisfy the elements of the Doctrine of Discovery, giving them power to claim their land. There was no solution to this myth.
  3. During the Kumeyaay Revolt, fire was set to the San Diego mission, representing the resistance against the Spaniards. This was their way of expressing how they were not in support of the treatment they were inflicting. The author’s daughter’s project could be described as “decolonizing” because it was in disagreement with the incorrect knowledge that they had provided to them. Instead, it was allowing an entirely different perception to be seen.
  4. The author begins the article with “The California Dream is a myth for many California Indian peoples and tribes” (Chilcote 1). She goes on to explain how they were not given an equal opportunity to possess the feeling of what was explained to be “The California Dream”. To the indigienous people, the California Dream could be described in one word: Decolonization. She explains how decolonization to them is being able to return to their land freely, so that they may be given equal opportunities such as determining their political status, futures, and having a true chance at independence. Chilcote expresses that the solution to this issue is for the tribes to be able to return to their land. It is not necessary to remove the non-tribes from the land, but for them to be able to coexist peacefully.
  5. My overall thoughts and reactions to this week‘s material were very upsetting. It is completely inhumane to not only remove people from the land where they originated, but to also justify it with the excuses that were used when doing it. The Indigineous People were treated unfairly, and were not given equal opportunities as everyone else. Physically abusing the tribes had been brought to my attention before, although this week’s material allowed me to see some of the mental abuse that the tribes were enduring as well.

Surrealism is about the dream state or what challenges what we logically know or are familiar with. Television and film have often used Surrealism to visually make points when words will fall short.

Find Your Surrealist Film Clip:

Taking some inspiration from Salvador Dali, or directors like David Lynch, find a short movie or television show clip that you find is Surreal. Do some research, there are plenty of clips of this nature on YouTube. Be sure tell us the name of the film or television show where the clip is from, and the name of the film’s director, or episode if it’s from television.

Make sure the clip is not too long, maybe 2 and a half minutes max. I have to view all of these while grading each of your submissions.

Inserting Media in Discussions (Links to an external site.)

Discussion Questions:

Tell us why you chose this film clip.

What is it about the clip that made an impression on you?

What do you feel makes it visually effective? Discuss some principles of design that are responsible for the visual impact created in the film clip.

Avoid going to Google for answers to the questions. Adding a little info from a source is OK, but I really want to hear your very own thoughts.

Part 1: Write a short essay that answers the above questions in detail. Additions to your thread resulting from any added research is fine. But remember to stay on topic and answer the questions.

Part 2: Respond to a minimum of 2 other student Posts.

Points will be distributed in this manner: Your initial Post can earn you up to 10 points, and each response is worth up to 5 points max. Maximum points is 20. Extraordinary posts and responses will be rewarded with extra points, making totals larger than 20, but no more than 24 points. Poor spelling and grammar will result in the loss of points. Entries with any errors in spelling and grammar will receive no higher than 17/20. Be sure to make your entries perfect.

*The purpose of this exercise is to promote critical thinking. Be sure to provide detailed and supportive answers. One word answers like “cool, awesome, lol” are not sufficient.You will be graded on the quality of your posts and responses. Failure to respond to at least 2 posts will cost you points. Be mindful and polite to one another, and more importantly, be creative and have fun.

  1. The world depicted in The Hunger Games is of gross inequality, mass surveillance, brutal crushing of dissent, where the young are sacrificed and where there is real hunger. A fantasy of the future? So go Katniss Everdeen, as they say: “Happy Hunger Games. And may the odds be ever in your favour.” After all, it’s just a game. There seems to be a trend in young adult fiction that uses the framework of “games” in which young heroes are at the center of the action, and, are often sacrificed. Discuss and explore.

Food provides a clear lens to analyze power and rebellion through theory, surveillance and the art historical genre of memento mori (remember you will die). How does food represent and enact power? How does food send moral and political messages? How does the government control and, in fact, author the lives of the citizens?

In addition, Collins seeks to explicate “her anxiety about the dangers inherent in the postmodern confusion of ‘acceptable’ fantasy and ‘unacceptable’ reality.” How does Collins achieve conveying her fears. Does she offer any solutions? How might The Hunger Games be a reflection of our times?

  1. Songs

According to Jon Fitzgerald and Philip Hayward in their article “Mountain Airs, Mockingjays, and Modernity: Songs and their Significance in The Hunger Games,” “songs represent an unusually important thematic element of The Hunger Games‘s various media texts, demonstrating how song elements can be closely integrated with plot and thematics, rather than simply serving as peripheral sonic adornments that signal future difference and/or dystopia.”

Sample Claim from the article: “A song, characterized by the novel/film as a traditional Appalachian ‘mountain air’, functions as a narrative and musical motif in the novel and film that binds Katniss and her District 12 to a (mythical) pre-modern, pre-dystopian past that gives her the strength to confront and battle the dystopian modernity represented by the Capitol and its inhumane, gladiatorial imposition” (Fitzgerald and Hayward).

  1. According to Mary F. Pharr and Leisa A. Clark in their “Introduction” to their collection of scholarly essays, Of Bread, Blood and The Hunger Games: “Folded into the truly epic scope of this series are multiple, sometimes contradictory narrative genres: a) a war story that is as well an antiwar treatise, b) a romance that is never unreservedly romantic, c) a science fiction adventure that also serves as grim social satire, d) an identity novel that is compellingly ambivalent about gender roles, and — like other great epics — e) a tragedy depicting the desperate human need for heroes and the terrible cost of heroism. Even its futuristic location is evocative: f) the dystopian Panem is built on the ruins of the continent we call North America, its inhabitable land drastically reduced through a cascade of natural and man-made disasters. The setting is painfully easy to imagine. As a pure story, The Hunger Games trilogy has a cultural significance that moves through and beyond the postmodern world

    Exercise 11: RespirationIn this exercise you will be learning more about the process of aerobic respiration. This metabolic process is central to the metabolism of plants and animals. As you saw in the pre-lab exercise, changes in these metabolic processes in humans can have a significant health impact. Although it would be ideal to be able to learn about the respiration process in humans, it is not practical from an experimental perspective.We therefore will look at other organisms as our models for understanding the respiration process. In our case, we will use both a plant and an animal model; garden peas and mealworms will be used as the experimental organisms. In the first part of the experiment, you will be using garden peas to answer two questions about respiration. You will be watch two videos that examine carbon dioxide and oxygen and their role in respiration. You will propose a hypothesis that would answer your question and then watch a video that will show you the results of your measurements.

    Background InformationAerobic cellular respiration (also known as glucose oxidation) is the process by which energy stored in the chemical bonds of molecules like glucose is harvested and transferred into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The energy in ATP can then be used to power the metabolism of the cell. All living organisms use ATP to power their metabolism.The overall reaction for the process isC6H12O6 + 6O2 + ADP + Pi 6CO2 + 6H2O + ATP

    this overall reaction greatly simplifies the overall process, showing only the first reactants and the final products of respiration. The overall process is a sequence of reactions that are divided into three stages. Glycolysis, which occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell, takes a glucose molecule and splits it into two parts. The second stage, the Krebs cycle, takes these the two molecules that are the end products of glycolysis and dismantles them further, releasing energy from the chemical bonds that are successively broken. In the third stage, the electron transport chain phosphorylates ADP to ATP in a process known as oxidative phosphorylation. Both the Krebs cycle and oxidative phosphorylation occur in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells.Activity 1: Respiration in Garden PeasWhat is the question we would like to answer?It is well known that pea plants carry out the process of cellular respiration. But what about the pea (the seed at the start of the germination process? Obviously, the seed must be alive, or it wouldn’t be able to germinate and produce a new plant. So does that mean that the pea itself is also performing respiration early in germination even before there are leaves present on the plant?Do peas perform cellular respiration during germination?How do we answer the question from a scientific standpoint?

    Develop a hypothesisBased on the information you have read previously, you should now know that the way that scientists answer a question is to develop a hypothesis that is a tentative answer to the question. Remember, it does not matter whether your hypothesis is “right or wrong,” only that it can be tested experimentally. Now, you should develop a hypothesis that might answer the question posed at the beginning of this section; do peas undergo cellular respiration during germination? It does not matter if your hypothesis is correct or not in the end, just that the hypothesis can be tested. In either case, whether you accept or reject your hypothesis, if done correctly, you should have learned something.

    Question 1-1: Now, write your hypothesis for answering the question “do peas undergo cellular respiration during germination?” on the Skill Check work sheet for this experiment. Make a predictionWhen you start to think about how you would test your hypothesis, you will need to think about how you would interpret the data that will be generated from your experiment. It is important that you decide what the results might mean in advance of doing the experiment. For example, we know that carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced as an end-product of the reactions that occur in respiration and that oxygen (O2) is used by the organism during the same reactions. Remember that you should have a control for what you are doing.


    Question 1-2: Write a prediction on your answer sheet that addresses what you would predict will happen to CO2 levels in the vicinity of the organism if it is performing or not performing respiration. Remember, predictions tend to be posed as if/then statements.As it turns out, there is equipment available that can measure amounts of CO2. There are, however, some limitations to this equipment. Since the amounts of CO2 that would be produced would be very small compared to the volume of air surrounding us, it would be best if we could keep this CO2 in a confined space where changes could be measured more easily. The first video that you will watch will have a lab-built system that will allow you to determine whether or not two different sets of peas are able to produce CO2..Now watch the video at the following website. Take careful notes on what you see as they review the data near the end of the video and fill in the data in Table 1 of the Skill Check Worksheet. Now, answer the following questions on the Skill Check Worksheet.Why did one of the pea cultures appear to produce CO2 while the other did not?From a biochemical standpoint, what does boiling do to the peas?What conclusions can you draw based on the data that was generated?

    Activity 2: Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide in RespirationWhat if you had a piece of equipment available that would allow you to measure amounts of CO2 or O2 in the air? What might you predict would happen to the levels of these gases in the vicinity of the organism if the organism was performing respiration?

    In this experiment, two sensors will be used, one that is capable of measuring the amount of CO2 gas that is present in a closed system (i.e. a bottle containing the organisms in question, that is sealed and does not let air or CO2 to either enter or escape. It turns out that we can use the sensor that can measure the CO2 gas to act as the “cork” for the bottle. The sensor is attached to an input box that connects to a computer that will collect data and help you to analyze it. The apparatus, when set up, will look similar to this except that there will be two probes inserted into the respiration chamber instead of just one.

    The second sensor will be used in the side of the same respiration chamber that is capable of measuring the amount of oxygen in the chamber. Watch the video at Question 2-1: What did you see happening to the CO2 level in the chamber? Did this surprise you or not?Question 2-2: What happened to the oxygen level in the chamber?

    Include answers to all questions below with a ??.

    Upload all your answers in a document (MS Word/Google Doc/Pages/…)

    • Some questions involve taking a picture and putting it in the document.

    If you don’t have a lab kit: for now do it using this simulation (Links to an external site.).

    Show your work for each answer where you do a calculation. (include the equation and the values & units for each quantity)

    <strong>PART I: Resistors</strong>

    • Take out the components from your lab kit.

    Remember the things we learned in the Lab Intro:

    • Ohm’s Law: ?=??V=IR.

    Resistors in Series: ???=?1+?2+…Req=R1+R2+…

    Resistors in Parallel: 1???=1?1+1?2+…1Req=1R1+1R2+…

    • ?? What is the voltage of your battery? (measure it)

    ?? To make sure you don’t break the multimeter we’re going to calculate the minimum resistance that we can connect to the battery. If you want a maximum possible current of 150 mA, what is the smallest resistance you can attach to your battery?

    Make sure that the equivalent resistance you attach to your battery is always at least the value you found in the last question.

    Choose any two identical resistors.

    • ??Measure their resistances (they should be about the same). What are they?

    Put the two identical resistors in series (NO BATTERY yet) like this:
    Screen Shot 2021-10-12 at 9.30.58 AM.png

    ??What is the predicted value of the equivalent resistance(??Rp)?

    ??What is the actual equivalent resistance you measure(??Re)?

    ??Calculate the percent error of the measure value from the predicted value:

    %?????=???????????×100%error=|Re?Rp|Rp×100.

    1. Choose any two different resistors (but not TOO different)
    2. ??Measure their resistances. What are they?

    Put the two resistors in series (NO BATTERY yet) like this:
    Screen Shot 2021-10-12 at 9.47.24 AM.png

    • ??What is the predicted value of the equivalent resistance(??Rp)?

    ??What is the actual equivalent resistance you measure(??Re)?

    ??Calculate the percent error of the measure value from the predicted value.

    Choose any two identical resistors.

    ??Measure their resistances. What are they?

    Put the two resistors in parallel (NO BATTERY yet) like this:
    Screen Shot 2021-10-12 at 9.54.22 AM.png

    ??What is the predicted value of the equivalent resistance(??Rp)?

    ??What is the actual equivalent resistance you measure(??Re)?

    ??Calculate the percent error of the measure value from the predicted value:.

    Choose any two different resistors 

    ??Measure their resistances. What are they?

    Put the two resistors in parallel (NO BATTERY yet) like this:
    Screen Shot 2021-10-12 at 9.57.07 AM.png

    ??What is the predicted value of the equivalent resistance(??Rp)?

    ??What is the actual equivalent resistance you measure(??Re)?

    ??Calculate the percent error of the measure value from the predicted value.

    ??Call in the instructor (aka His Illustriousness Sébastien of House Cormier) to check your work

    • <strong>PART II: Simple Resistor Circuit</strong>

    ??  Create Circuit 1 (shown below) using a 20 ohm resistor, your battery, the switch (leave the switch open), and the Ammeter (which is the multimeter set up to measure current).  Take a picture of your physical circuit setup and include it here.
    NOTE: Always check the values of resistors before putting them in the circuit using the Multimeter in Ohmmeter mode.

    circuit (5)b.png ?? Circuit 1

    ?? What is the expected current in this circuit based on Ohm’s Law?

    ?? What is the actual current when you close the switch? (don’t forget to open the switch after you measure)

    ?? Move the Ammeter in the circuit so that is between the switch and the resistor. What is the current now (when the switch is closed)?

    ?? How do the answers of #6 and #7 compare? Are the answers consistent with your understanding of current?

    Remove the Ammeter and rebuild the circuit as shown below

    circuit (5)-1.png ?? Circuit 1 (without the Ammeter)

    ?? Change the multimeter to Voltmeter mode (using the 2000 mV range). Close the switch. What is the voltageacross (i) the battery, (ii) the switch), and (iii) the resistor?  NOTE: Remember the battery voltage is positive  and theother ones are negative  or zero .

    ?? What does the sum of the voltages add up to? Is it as expected? Explain. 

    Open the switch

    <strong>PART III: 2 Resistor Series Circuit</strong>

    ??Set up Circuit 2 (2 resistors in series) shown below using a 100 ohm resistor and a 20 ohm resistor. (in all cases, if you don’t have the required resistors use the closest resistors you have. Take a picture of your physical circuit setup and include it here.

    circuit (6) copy.png ?? Circuit 2 

    ?? Calculate the expected equivalent resistance of this circuit.

    ?? Measure the actual equivalent resistance of this circuit. (make sure the switch is off for this part)

    ?? What do you expect the current to be  (i) through the battery, (ii) between the resistors?

    ?? Measure the current at those two points. Is it as expected?

    ?? What do you expect the voltage drop across each resistor to be? Explain.

    ?? Measure the voltage across each resistor.  Is it as expected?

    Open the switch

    <strong>PART IV: 2 Resistor Parallel Circuit</strong>

    circuit (7) copy.png ?? Circuit 3 

    ?? Calculate the expected equivalent resistance of this circuit.

    ?? Measure the actual equivalent resistance of this circuit. (make sure the switch is off for this part)

    ?? What do you expect the current to be through (i) the battery, (ii) the 100 ohm resistor (iii) the 20 ohm resistor?

    ?? Measure the current at those three points. Is it as expected?

    ?? What do you expect the voltage drop across each resistor to be? Explain.

    ?? Measure the voltage across each resistor.  Is it as expected? 

    Open the switch

    <strong>PART V: Equivalent resistance of a 4 Resistor Circuit</strong>

    We’re just using resistors and wires for this one: Make up your own circuit using 4 resistors (make sure to choose 4 resistors that aren’t too different from each other and don’t just put them all in series! )

    ?? Draw a circuit diagram. Include a picture of your circuit diagram here. 

    ?? Calculate the expected equivalent resistance of this circuit. (using resistor addition formulas)

    ?? Measure the actual equivalent resistance of this circuuit.

    In this assignment, I want you to think about how inequality has effects on work and labor. One of the most marked characteristics of rising inequality is the the increased precarization of stable, well-paid employment. Tied to an extensive financialization of the economy (whereby profits are primarily derived from financial markets rather than production), contemporary inequality is lived as much in the household as in the workplace, wherever it may be. Here, you will see one example in the form of work in the gig economy.
    You will start this assignment by reading the paper by Alexandrea Ravenelle (“Sharing economy workers: selling, not sharing“, Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society).

    I then want you to read the following texts in the sequence given here.

    Text #1, from marcfreccero.com:

    DECEMBER 7, 2016 • 2 COMMENTSENTREPRENEURSHIP

    As a former Uber and Lyft driver, I constantly get asked if driving for Uber & Lyft is a good idea. Personally, I think it is, especially for entrepreneurs, musicians, actors, etc – basically anyone with a side hustle.

    As a result of being asked about Uber & Lyft so many times, I decided to write this post for people interested in driving. I’m going to talk about the 10 things that I wish I knew BEFORE driving for Uber & Lyft – things that I think you should know before starting to drive.

    One quick side note: I want to say that this post isn’t a smooth way of having you sign up through my links. I’ve seen tons of blog posts and videos with horrible content, and it’s obvious that they only created it with the hopes that you would sign up with their links. All the content in this post I’ve learned through experience, and even though I do have my sign up links listed in this post, I made sure to make this information in this post really helpful (regardless if you use my links or not).

    This is absolutely critical to getting the best of both worlds. Both Lyft and Uber will regularly run bonuses and specials, and by driving for both, you can pick which one is best. Especially on holiday/eventful weekends, the apps will even compete to “outbid” each other on which one is paying more that weekend.

    As I’ll talk about more in this post, you can easily drive for one app for 3 months, not drive for the other one, and then starting driving without notifying them. You have a tremendous amount of flexibility, so I highly suggest signing up with Uber and also signing up with Lyft.

    2. Only drive during the Surge Hours

    The main periods where you can make the most amount of money is morning & evening commutes (7-9amand 5-7pm), Friday and Saturday Nights, and Saturday and Sunday during the day. The truth is, with Uber & Lyft, I don’t think you can make a lot of money if you drive in the non-surge hours.

    For example, if you can only drive Monday – Friday 11am-1pm, I personally don’t think it’s worth it because you’ll make such little money. Then, combine that with all the expenses of driving, and it can get difficult. Don’t get me wrong though – if you drive during surge hours you can make a lot of money.

    3. People are Nice

    I constantly get asked my aspiring drivers if people are rude or difficult when driving. The truth is, I’ve done hundreds of rides, and I’ve truly only ever had 1 rude passenger – and they weren’t even that bad. Even on Friday and Saturday nights, people are usually really respectful and won’t be rude or obnoxious.

    If anything, they usually either encourage conversation or are on their phone. And if they’re in a group, they’ll usually just talk amongst themselves.

    4. You DON’T Need Snacks or Goodies

    When Lyft first started one big selling point was that the drivers had candy, snacks, water and more. Now, however, that expectation doesn’t exist anymore. If you’re considering driving, don’t worry about having to get candy and water all the time, as that’s a thing of the past.

    The one thing I will suggest is napkins however, as you should have some in your car regardless if you’re driving or not.

    5. No planning ahead

    Everyone knows that Uber & Lyft is flexible and you can drive whenever you want, but I have tons of people ask me if I have to “schedule” my hours. The truth is, you can turn on the app whenever you want, drive for as long (or as short) as you want, and go about your day.

    The best part about driving is that it’s completely flexible, and not only that, there’s no scheduling required. Pretty awesome.

    6. Daily Pay

    This didn’t exist when I first started driving, but now daily pay is available via both apps. This means that you can drive for a certain period of time, hit a button, and get paid instantly. With both apps all they do is charge you $0.50 to cash out, which is amazing that you can literally work and get paid within a few hours.

    7. There’s a lot of hidden expenses

    Now this is a negative thing unfortunately, but there are a lot of hidden expenses with Lyft and Uber. Obviously everyone knows that you have to spend more in gas, but you also have more oil changes, more depreciation on your car, you need more maintenance (tires, engine, etc).

    In addition, you’re an independent contractor – meaning taxes don’t get taken out, and you have to deal with that at the end of the year. Huge pro tip too: Always consult with a tax accountant, because they can help with you with certain deductions and tax situations.

    8. You DON’T Need a Car

    You read that right. Both apps now have programs where you can rent/loan a car from them and drive. This makes it a lot easier for people who either don’t have a car or simply can’t afford one. In addition, Lyft even has a program where if you do a certain amount of rides in a week you can have the car for free (as long as you hit their quota every week).

    9. Fun, yet Tiring

    This might or might not be surprising, but driving is extremely fun and the hours absolutely fly by. You’re picking up people, having really interesting conversations, dropping them off, and then repeating that process. To be honest, out of any job I’ve ever done, the hours fly by faster with driving than anything else.

    On the flip side it’s insane how tiring it can be. This probably isn’t surprising to anyone who’s done distance drives, but it’s insane how dead you can be after driving for hours.

    10. NO Quota

    This is a very overlooked benefit of driving: You don’t have a quota. If you want to do 2 rides in a month, go for it. If you want to do 200, knock yourself out. There are no quotas with either app, making this a huge benefit as you can drive for either for as long as you want, and simply ignore the other one until they have a special bonus.

    As a result of this, I highly suggest bouncing between both apps to see which one works best for you and which one pays more. Then, stick with that app, and only use the other one when they have a special deal, or when you think the other one is starting to pay more.

    Overall, those are the 10 things that I wish I knew about Uber & Lyft before driving. I really hoped this post was helpful, as I sat down and thought of the most important points for any aspiring driver. Good luck out there!

    Text #2, from marcfreccero.com:

    AUGUST 7, 2017 • NO COMMENTSMISCELLANEOUS

    A while back I wrote a post about the 10 things I wish I knew before driving for Uber & Lyft, and both the blog post and video received a lot of attention. When I now tell people that I don’t drive for them anymore, the inevitable next question is always: Why?

    Now the main reason is that everything I have going on with DJing/Music Production and YouTubing is taking up so much time, and supporting me financially, so I decided to put 100% of my energy into those endeavors. However, there are still other reasons that factored into the equation, which may have lead me to quit regardless.

    Sign up for Uber here: Uber Link

    1. Decreased Pay

    Out of any of the seven, this is definitely the biggest (and for an obvious reason). Lyft and Uber don’t pay anywhere close to what they used to. I remember, roughly 2-3 years ago, you could make 60/hour in Boston during snow storms. Now it’s nothing close to that.

    Especially with the introduction of Lyft Line and Uber Pool, which batch passengers together, you make significantly less than before.

    2. Zero Upwards Mobility

    Uber & Lyft is excellent part time, but there’s a glass ceiling on where it can take you. You don’t get raises, or extra incentives to stay longer as a driver. Although Uber & Lyft are not the only jobs that have this, it’s still frustrating as you can’t go anywhere driving for them (no pun intended). If you drive for 5 years you make the same exact amount as someone that just started today.

    3. Taxes are a Nightmare

    Now in my personal situation my taxes have only gotten more complicated. But if you’re not used to itemizing your dedications, or saving receipts, or tracking miles, or doing everything else related to filing taxes, it’s going to be a new area for you. You’re an independent contractor with Uber & Lyft, so you don’t pay taxes in a paycheck – you pay during filling time, which means you give money as oppose to getting money back.

    4. You can’t drive anytime

    Well, technically. The truth is, you can drive whenever you want, but I wouldn’t advise it. The best times to drive are commuting hours, weekend nights, and weekend days. The truth is, if you drive at 1pm on a random Tuesday, you’re going to make close to nothing. This can be really tricky for people, because if you can’t drive during those times that I mentioned, it’s probably not worth it for you.

    5. Car logistics

    This is just a part of being a driver. You’re sitting for hours at a time, which isn’t good for you health wise. In addition, going to the bathroom is extremely tricky – especially when you’re stuck in traffic in the middle of the city. It’s also a bit tough to eat, because you don’t want your car to smell like food, so you have to plan all your meals around driving. The list goes on…there’s a lot of aspects that get more difficult when it comes to driving.

    6. Legal aspects

    When it comes to car insurance, it gets a lotttttt more tricky when you add Uber & Lyft into the mix. Every company is different, and there could be a chance that your insurance will go up or they will change your policies. In addition, just based of statistics, you’re more likely to get in an accident when on the road (it’s just math). I never had an accident while driving, but the chance is always increased the more time you’re on the road, which makes the legal aspects a lot more difficult (this is why numerous drivers are now getting dash cams).

    7. Zero Money to pick someone up

    Last, but far from least, is the fact that you make nothing driving to pick someone up. You only make money while someone is in your car. What’s even more frustrating about this is there’s been times where I drove 10 minutes to pick someone up, only to have them cancel on me last second. Although there is a cancelation fee, sometimes you don’t receive it, and it’s usually just $5.

    Even though this list has a pessismstic spin on Uber & Lyft, I do think that it can be a great source of side cash for people. My biggest advice is to only drive part time, and use my techniques to maximize your earnings.

    In these two blog posts, Marc Freccero shows both the promises and pitfalls of the gig economy. Using quotes from the two materials, I want you to write a brief 500 word essay that addresses the following questions:

    1. What were Freccero’s initial expectations about being an Uber/Lyft driver?

    2. How was the gig economy ‘framed’?

    3. After some experience driving for Uber/Lyft, what was Freccero’s experience like? Did it match his expectations?

    4. Did he manage to make a living out of being an Uber/Lyft driver?

    5. Were his working conditions adequate?

    6. Was this actually ‘a good hustle’?
