In an essay discuss in what ways does learning to write effectively support your future academic, professional and personal goals?

In an essay of one to two paragraphs, respond to the following prompt:

In what ways does learning to write effectively support your future academic, professional and personal goals? Be specific for each of three goal-types and include a definition of “writing effectively.” Finally, make sure to include a statement or two about how you plan to work toward becoming a more effective writer this semester

Write a focused, analytical essay explaining why or why not by relying on at least two primary and/or secondary sources.

Popular protests have shaken Iraq and Lebanon in the past month. Given that both states grew out of the mandate period, and have very diverse populations, sectarian violence in both countries has often been attributed to the interference of outside powers (most notably Iran, the U.S. and the Gulf states) and many historians have relied on this pattern to explain the failure in the rise of popular revolutionary movements. Yet, recent protests in Iraq and Lebanon seem to reflect an opposite phenomenon because they are inter-ethnic, inter-religious, and transcend the politics of sectarian divisions, and reflect a popular rejection against wide-spread corruption and sectarianism.

The assignment
Write a focused, analytical essay that answers this question: What historical factors explain the current popular revolutionary movements and do you think they will succeed? Explain why or why not by relying on at least two primary and/or secondary sources.

Your sources may take any form and range from Twitter tweets to academic journal articles, however, you must analyze these in the context of the question and present your own personal view addressing it. You should have a thesis and main points, supporting your analysis with specific and relevant historical evidence (from the sources you have selected and/or other primary or secondary historical sources). Your paper should be 800-1000 words in length. For footnotes, use the Chicago

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?

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.

What are the main types and causes of unemployment in the MENA region?

FEMALE LABOR FORCE PARTICIPATION

‘Gender inequality has been eliminated at some levels of education and at the highest levels in some countries there are now more women than men attending university. Women’s labour market experience in MENA differs from the rest of the world in several respects’
Critically evaluate this statement with a special focus on women human capital accumulation and labour market outcomes and suggest specific policies that can successfully redress this problem.

SECTION B

UNEMPLOYMENT

‘Youth unemployment has reached alarming levels in Egypt. As much as 26.7 percent of the young Egyptians between 18-29 years are unemployed (Central Agency for Mobilization and Statistics, CAPMAS), twice the unemployment rate for the overall population.’
What are the main types and causes of unemployment in the MENA region? Why are the fore mentioned groups the most likely affected by the current downturn in economic activity? What are the causes and consequences to unemployment among the target group? Discuss what particular policies would be most effective in addressing labour market outcomes of this group?

SECTION C

GENDER DISCRIMINATION

What types of gender-based discrimination are most common in MENA labor markets? Drawing on the main theories of labor market discrimination that you learnt in this course, discuss some possible causes and policy remedies for this problem.

Present both sides of the issue (UV Rays from Sunlight) before you state your position demonstrates that you have critically analyzed the data and made a well-informed decision.

Your essay should include four major sections: Title Page, Main Body, and References.

The idea that prolonged exposure to direct sunlight is harmful represents one of the main reasons why the use of sunblock/sunscreen has been widely promoted. In particular, ultraviolet (UV) rays are known to cause damage to the skin upon direct contact which can lead to various adverse effects such as: premature aging, sunspots, wrinkles, formation of benign and malignant melanomas, cancer, and possibly death. However, it is also known that direct sunlight (and more importantly, its contact with skin that has not been treated with any sunblock/sunscreen) is required for the synthesis of Vitamin D within the human body; which means that to some extent, there is an essential need to actually be exposed to direct sunlight each day.

As this issue continues to be debated more and more, the question that mostly remains is whether or not UV rays from the sunlight are ultimately more beneficial or harmful to human beings throughout their lifespan.

To address this issue, you will be required to do the following:

1. Introduce, present, and discuss both perspectives critically based on valid research that exists. Choose a position on where you stand on this particular issue and provide supporting evidence of your claim by citing academic sources.

2. Incorporate graphical illustrations that highlight quantitative metrics (i.e. time, wavelengths, energy, frequency) associated with the dangers of UV rays making contact with human skin and at least 1-2 graphical illustrations that correlate with how UV rays are associated with synthesizing Vitamin D in the skin. You MUST also discuss your graphs thoughtfully in terms of the variables assessed/presented, and also provide at least 2 math equations and 2 calculations based on the scientific data presented on this issue. (Note: The equations and calculations can either be based on the graphs you include or used to address, introduce, or prove a particular point.)

3. Image – Select or draw an image that is properly referenced in your paper to show that you are able to relate your image to your content. The selected image must help the reader understand the topic better.

4. Graph – You may plot a graph from a data table from your cited source or use a graph already drawn to show that you are able to interpret the data table or graph. From the graph, what generalization can be made?

5. Mathematical Equations/ Calculations- Use relevant mathematical formulas used in chemistry to calculate an unknown quantity in your paper such as molarity, charge, energy, calories, frequency, mass, slope, y-intercept etc. In doing so you will demonstrate an ability to reason quantitatively. Be sure to thoroughly discuss both sides of the issue and present your position. Presenting both sides of the issue before you state your position demonstrates that you have critically analyzed the data and made a well-informed decision.

6.Write your paper third person even as you write your position. Use proper grammar and punctuation.
