Read the article. Discuss the following questions: The Watson and Crick article (p. 737 – 738) is classic paper in biology. From the article and other references (your text book) discuss the structure and function of the DNA molecule. Why do you think this paper was a significant break through for the scientific community? Since the DNA molecule is the focus of scientific research, discuss the significance of the Human Genome Project. Be sure to discuss biological, social, and ethical issues concerning the HGP. How have scientist used the basic DNA knowledge to perform research in genomics and biotechnology. You must back up your statements with references from the Internet and books/periodicals and your textbook.
Write a topic speaking about the correlation of ultraviolet rays to the skin.
In Rousseau’s Discourse on the Origin of Inequality, Rousseau tells a story of savage man’s evolution into civil man. In doing so, he says a lot about both human nature and the role of government in society. In telling the story of man’s development, he aims to distinguish between what is “natural” and what is “artificial” in man’s nature, and says many meaningful things on this in Part One. In telling the story of the “three revolutions,” he says a lot about what interests government rises up to protect and serve, as well as the way that governmental (or “magisterial”) power can be corrupted.
We also looked at the U.S. Declaration of Independence (1776), and Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address” (1863), both of which are foundational documents for the country where you live (or at least the country where you’re going to college).
In a short essay (minimum 2-3 full, double-spaced pages), please respond to the following prompt: How does the Discourse on the Origin of Inequality help us understand the roles of government, inequality, and/or human nature in present day American society?
Your paper should have a thesis, which is a claim, opinion, or judgment. In the case of this paper, your thesis should concern the connection between American society today and something or things that Rousseau says in the Discourse. In other words, it’s not enough to simply say that they are connected. Your thesis should be a claim that answers the question: In what way(s) are they connected?
Support your claims by citing relevant passages from the text with page numbers in parentheses at the end of sentences.
You must refer to Rousseau, and you have the option of referring to the Declaration and Gettysburg Address.
You can refer to current events, and please try and cite sources in footnotes or endnotes when referring to specific information.
WriteE a report research about how has affected the technology in the world of publicity from 2000 to present day.
Answer one of the questions below in a thoughtful and concise essay. There is not a required word count, but you should answer each in an essay that consists of about 5 paragraphs or more. The answer should include artistic examples from the textbook to illustrate the point of your essay.
Compare and contrast the Gothic and Romanesque societies and visual art. How did their differing cultures and philosophies impact the art produced during each period? Be sure to describe the characteristics of each artistic style. Include examples from each time period.
Discuss the Crusades and their impact on visual art and culture in Europe. Be sure to discuss Islamic artistic styles as well as Christian.
Option #3 covers material that was briefly discussed in class. If you would like to choose this essay question, you are welcome to do more research and use your textbook for information.
3. Discuss the artistic transition from the Italo-Byzantine style to the International Gothic and early Renaissance styles that occurred in fourteenth century Italy. Be sure to include why this transition occurred, specific examples, important artists, and definitions of each style.
o complete this assignment, you may use templates located throughout the text. You will create a functional behavioral assessment and behavioral intervention plan consisting of the following parts:
Part 1: Select a Target Behavior. Use a friend, spouse, significant other, or your own child as a model. Define and clearly state the behavior to be changed in operational terms. Identify the terminal behavior and the expectations. This will keep the report aligned with expected outcomes and prevent reinforcement of unrelated or negative behaviors. Identify incremental behaviors if needed. Positive targets are desirable (e.g., increasing desired behavior versus decreasing behavior).
Part 2: Collect Baseline Information. Obtain a baseline of behavior prior to implementing the program by using a tally or a chart. Collect descriptive or quantitative data on intensity and/or frequency as appropriate. Collecting baseline data makes it possible to determine the effects of reinforcement as well as to identify changes in behavior.
Part 3: Identify a Reinforcer. What will the student receive throughout the process for exhibiting the desired behavior, and then upon reaching the goal? Remember, the reinforcer must be appealing to the student if he/she is expected to work to obtain it. Reinforcement should be individualized to the student and may be primary (tangible) or secondary (social). Internal or self-dispensed reinforcement can be used as long as the reinforcer is clearly defined.
Part 4: Develop a Behavior Change Program. What are the contingencies? Describe the learning situation. Arrange the environment so the desirable behavior will occur. Identify the method and schedule of reinforcement. Possible behavior change methods include: shaping, modeling, contingency contracting, token economy, extinction, time-out, desensitization, and punishment. Schedules include: fixed/variable, interval/ratio. Positive interventions are the most desirable. Set a realistic and specific goal slightly above baseline. State your goal in measurable terms.
Part 5: Implement the Behavior Change Program and Establish and Maintain Records. Maintain ongoing records of the target behavior to determine whether the response length or frequency has increased or decreased. Organize and chart in the same manner as the baseline data. Maintain some anecdotal records regardless of the data gathering method.
Part 6: Evaluate and Modify the Intervention. Analyze collected information. Compare baseline and intervention data to determine if the program has accomplished the goal. If progress is unsatisfactory, then change reinforcers or procedures. Use data to make changes in the program. Gradually eliminate reinforcement and/or prompts as appropriate.
Research paper topic: Strategies of Industrialization: East-Asian versus Latin-American
In Part I of your research paper, which is a theoretical part, you should
identify main stages of industrial transformation;
define easy import substitution industrialization
further to your definition, explain what is it that typically causes the shortage of foreign currency in developing countries during their easy ISI phase of industrialization? Also explain when does a foreign exchange shortage become a foreign exchange crisis?
also explain – using the quantity theory of money – why increase in Latin
America’s wealth, measured in terms of gold and silver and gems, did not lead to long-term economic growth and successful industrialization in the region
define easy export substitution industrialization and explain what exactly is being substituted for what;
elucidate the importance of the easy export substitution industrialization as a means to absorb labour from less productive sectors, particularly agriculture (you may employ the Lewis model if needed)
define difficult import substitution industrialization and clarify in what sense do we say that Latin American countries entered this state “prematurely” while the East Asian economies entered this stage “maturely”In Part II of your paper, you are required to choose one developing country from East Asia and another from Latin America, and
contrast, using relevant literature and data, strategies for industrial development followed by the more successful East Asian economies and the less prosperous larger Latin American countries
explain how the East Asian economies were able to avoid unproductive rent-seeking by industrialists interested in earning above-normal profits who may have wanted to extend infant industry protection via the payment of bribes to government officials, while the
Latin American economies seemed unable to avoid such costs
elucidate the following: Chile seems to be the only Latin American country that has experienced the longest period of sustained growth in recent times. What may account for this phenomenon?
In part III of your paper you are asked to discuss Japanese experience of industrialization. In particular, you are asked to research the history of Toyota Company and its success in becoming a major car-exporting firm, and explain what help did Toyota receive from the Japanese government and how effective was that help. Also, with reference to Japan’s development,explain what is a relation-based government?
