Population Growth Population growth

PAPER TOPIC (choose one) 1. Population Growth Population growth, worldwide, is increasing at an alarming rate, at least according to some of the experts in the field. Ultimately, they believe, this will result in depletion of freshwater and forests leading to famine, increased poverty, and so on. What is your view on this issue? Should countries, other than China, enforce population control policies?

2. Wilderness Areas There is an area of land in northeastern Alaska (19.6 million acres) known as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or ANWR. ANWR was created to preserve wildlife and wilderness, but oil has been recovered here since the 1970s. (The area appears to be a repository for a significant amount of crude oil.) What is your opinion about drilling and transporting the oil from this area to the lower states? Is this necessary? What are the effects on the wildlife and the wilderness? What should be done?

For the one you have chosen, do the following:

• In a page or two, provide a technical summary of the issue, including the science behind the issue. You may use your textbook as the initial source of information, but you must include at least 3 other scientific sources. The sources should be peer-reviewed, scientific journals, not merely sites on the Internet. There are many sources to choose from; for example, Scientific American, Nature, National Geographic, Science, etc. Document your sources correctly in APA style. • In addition to your technical summary, prepare a paper of approximately 10 pages (approximately 2500 words). This paper should effectively provide an answer to the question you chose. Include in your paper a critique of the four sources of information you researched. Do you agree or disagree with their position(s) on the topic?

National Organization for Human Services (NOHS)

In all of your previous courses in this program, you have engaged with the ideas and approaches that comprise a professional background in human services. Have you had the opportunity to think about how all of your learning fits together? Could you readily explain how well prepared you are for each aspect of the human services role? One goal of this assignment is to prepare you to do that—with clarity and specific evidence—so that you are ready, for example, to address these questions in a job interview.
Write a three-part paper of approximately 9–15 pages that brings together three of the five key elements that lead to success in human services, represent the program outcomes of your degree, and align directly with the core competencies model of the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS):
  • Models of Service Delivery (Part 1).
  • Professional Competencies (Part 2).
  • Effective Helping Relationships (Part 3).
Each part of this assignment requires that you revisit the key ideas in a particular area and demonstrate your mastery of those ideas. In completing each part of this paper, draw upon your reading and discussions from your courses as well as any assignments you may have completed that would be helpful. Seek particularly to articulate your current understanding in these areas, regardless of what you may have written in earlier

Instructions

Review the case study, “Susan and Ted,” on pages 123–125 of your An Introduction to Human Services text. Pick a client from the case and analyze the case based on the areas identified below:
  • SECTION 1: Models of Service Delivery (3–5 pages). Provide a summary of the case and the main issues that are present. What professional competencies might you need to address the issues you have identified? Address how you would work with the client using the Human Service Delivery Model described in the Woodside and McClam text. Your work should address the services that might be provided by professionals who practice the medical model, the public health model and the human services model. How can a Human Services professional facilitate the interaction of all three models in revolving the problems presented to your selected client?
  • SECTION 2: Professional Competencies (3–5 pages). Analyze the case based on the strengths or weaknesses you identified through your self-assessments. Analyze how your results might impact your work with your selected client. Given what you know about yourself, the case and the client, is it possible to remain neutral? Explain your answer and provide an analysis of what you would recommend. Address any ethical or cultural concerns that might present when working with your selected client. What personal issues, values or biases might become concerns for you? How might you address these for yourself, so that you can function productively as a helping professional?
  • SECTION 3: Effective Helping Relationships (3–5 pages). Pick two of the values discussed in the readings (Chapter 6, An Introduction to Human Services) that guide practice and address how they would guide your work with this case. In your analysis, clearly present your rationale for picking the values you have chosen.

Case Summary

SUSAN AND TED

  • Susan and Ted met in college, where she was studying to be a teacher and he was studying to be an engineer. Ted was from an upper-middle-class family; Susan, from a religious, working-class family. Even while they were dating, Ted was a heavy “social drinker,” but Susan ignored his drinking. She wanted to marry a man with a college education and have a large family. She came from a small, close-knit family and had only one sister. She remembered her family as having few luxuries while she was growing up, but much love and nurturance. Ted’s family was also small, but not close. Ted had little contact with his family, even though they lived in the same town as the university. Ted and Susan decided to marry during Ted’s senior and Susan’s sophomore year. They were living together and talked about a life together. When Susan became pregnant, they talked with both of their families about the pregnancy. Both families saw marriage as the “right thing to do.” Susan’s family promised to help care for the baby. Ted’s family agreed to pay tuition and basic living expenses until Ted graduated. Ted continued in school; Susan dropped out to concentrate on building their home. Her religious tradition placed value on her responsibilities as a wife and mother. Ted felt he was leaving behind a happy, carefree life without responsibility. He was now beholden to his parents for financial support. He was determined to graduate so he could take his place in the world and earn a decent salary. His dreams did not include children; he saw college and career as a way to enhance his social status and pay for an exciting lifestyle that included fast cars and an active social life. He now faced an uncertain future. Susan tried to be the “perfect wife” her mother had been. She was determined to work before the baby was born. After the baby was born, she would assume the role of homemaker and mother. Susan and Ted did not discuss their finances together. Susan felt that Ted should assume the role of the financial planner. She was happy to have an allowance for food and other expenses. She deposited her check from work into their account. Ted felt that Susan had no business in the financial affairs. That was a husband’s role. In addition, Ted’s parents were paying many of their expenses. Susan’s small financial contribution did not merit her involvement. Ted began drinking heavily after they married. His grades were slipping. He did not spend much time at home. When Ted came home he seemed angry. He did not resemble the man Susan married. He threatened to hit her several times. Susan was sure that she must be doing something wrong. She thought her mother was a good wife and she followed her mother’s example, so she was lost about what else she could do. She was scared that she might lose Ted if she complained. Ted turned to drugs, and the relationship deteriorated further. Susan was alone and depressed but did not confide in her family, because she did not want to upset them. Susan knew that Ted was intent on completing school. He was often away for days. As Susan’s pregnancy progressed, Ted would come home after class frustrated and angry. He began to hit her. Once, he beat her so badly that he cracked two of her ribs and broke her nose. He also attempted to strangle her. She told no one and lied to her doctor, coworker, and friends about the injuries. Ted “came to his senses” and tried to make amends, but he began drinking heavily once again and in a fit of rage kicked her in the stomach, bringing on labor. Susan delivered a son in the sixth month of her pregnancy. Justin weighed 3 pounds, 2 ounces, and had difficulty breathing. He was placed in an intensive-care nursery for six weeks before his parents could take him home. During this time, Susan worked and Justin continued to be sickly, suffering from chronic ear infections and colic. Ted had trouble adjusting to his new son and refused to help, so Susan quit her job and took care of Justin alone. Susan worried about the medical bills related to Justin’s premature birth and subsequent medical treatments. Anytime she brought up questions about finances, Ted yelled at her, saying she did not trust him to manage that part of their lives. He forbad her to open the mail. She complied; she still could see the stack of letters or bills stacking up on the living room desk. Justin was so sick that she could not go back to work. After Ted graduated Susan hoped that their relationship would improve. Ted took a job at a local company; Susan believed that the job would be less stressful than school and Ted would have fewer pressures. Justin continued to have many health problems and was constantly under the care of physicians. He was often hospitalized with pneumonia and severe dehydration. When Justin was 14 months old, Ted deserted them. Susan had no money, no job, and no car. She turned to her parents for a small loan and took a job in a department store making minimum wage. She had to work, but it distressed her to leave Justin with her mom. She felt that she should be able to care for her own son. Being a single parent was difficult. By the time she paid the rent, the bills, and the babysitter, there was no money left. She was desperately unhappy but determined to make the best of things. Several months later, Ted returned. He had a new job making good money and was ready to “work things out.” He continued to drink and he still beat her, but she now wanted him at any cost. He soon learned this fact. One year later, Susan had another son, Matthew. At this point, Ted and Susan bought a house and proceeded to raise their family. For Ted, this consisted of nightly bouts with the bottle in front of a television set, long sessions on the computer, and forcing himself sexually on Susan. Whenever Susan thought about leaving, she concluded that her life included two very important aspects: she was financially secure and she was not raising her children alone. Since Justin and Mathew both needed special services, financial stability was critical. Justin was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome when he was three. He attended a special day care for two years and now attends elementary school. Justin continues to be in ill health. Just last year he was diagnosed with severe allergies. He has had pneumonia twice in the past year; he was hospitalized three times for various illnesses. Mathew is visually and hearing impaired. Each was diagnosed at his two-year-old pediatric exam. Mathew responded poorly to developmental and physical tests; after subsequent visits to specialists, doctors recommended therapeutic intervention. Every day Susan was grateful for Ted’s insurance coverage. Even with the coverage, their medical expenses were about $1,500 a month. Susan’s stability ended the day that Ted announced he had lost his job. He was to pack up his office by the end of the week. He received one month’s severance pay. Susan had feared this would be the result of the recent downsizing in many of the local industries. The entire community was feeling the effects of the economic downturn; all she had to do was drive to the neighborhood grocery store to see the devastating effects. Along this route, five houses were for sale on their street; several restaurants, the hardware store, one dress store, and two beauty shops had closed their doors in the last six months. Susan hoped that Ted would be spared. Susan was afraid that Ted would not be able to handle the layoff. She tried to talk with him about next steps in looking for alternate employment and applying for unemployment benefits. Ted’s answer was escalating violence and drink. He left a week later. Susan knows that she needs help. In fact, she is overwhelmed by her problems. She tries to make a list of what issues she faces, but despairs 10 minutes into the activity. She applied for a part-time job and has asked her mom and dad if they could take care of the boys when she is working. She worries about Ted’s whereabouts and health. Her connection with him survived such hard times, and, for her, it is difficult to imagine a world without him. And then there are the day-to-day financial pressures that confound her. How will she pay the rent, utility bills, and medical bills? What about food and transportation expenses? Susan wonders who she can turn to for help. What can she do? Where can she go?

Module 02 Environmental Issue Project – Topic Selection

For a major part of your grade, you are going to research and complete an environmental issues paper. This will help you build the skills necessary to develop an informed opinion and present that opinion in written form. This project will serve as a final assessment for the course. Using the content of the course, critically evaluate and analyze a controversial environmental issue of your choosing. You must examine the pros, cons, compromises, and tradeoffs of the issue by gathering credible information from various sources and assess the scientific credibility of the information. You will then develop from this information a well thought out paper that will address the major players involved, relevant cited facts, and a clearly identified opinion.

The first part of this project will be to submit a topic to your instructor for approval. Research the topic using online library, the online library, scientific journals, government documents, books, science magazines, and personal interviews. Peer reviewed sources should form the basis of your paper. Use a minimum of 6 sources. The final paper should be double-spaced, 12 point, and 6 to 8 pages in length with citations in APA format. Anytime you use the writings or ideas of others as though they were your own, you are plagiarizing (even if you paraphrase). All information and ideas that are not a part of general knowledge must be cited. When in doubt, cite!

Your final paper should address the following key points:

  • The Controversy: Identify the controversy
  • The Major Players: Who is involved? Why are they involved?
  • Important Facts: State relevant facts concerning the issue. Try to separate fact from opinion. Try not to show your own bias. Properly use APA citations
  • Side One: Arguments; state briefly and cite your sources
  • Side Two: Arguments; state briefly and cite your sources
  • Your Opinion and Rationale: I believe that…, We should…, I feel that… Use supporting arguments and rationale. What arguments would you use to present to those who disagree with you? Cite all of your sources.
  • References: Alphabetize your sources. Make sure there are sources representing both sides of the issue.

The schedule of deliverables for this project are:

Week 02 – Topic Submission

Week 03 – Begin Research

Week 04 – Reference List

Week 05 – Rough Draft – Peer Review

Week 06 – Final Paper

 

week 2 actual assignment: My topic selection will be on  Environmental Issue Project – Global Warming Manmade or Natural

 

It is time to identify an environmental controversy that is of interest to you.

You might find it useful to read your local newspaper, browse through your textbook, or search online for an environmental controversy that you wish to research throughout the rest of the course. Once you have determined an issue, write a brief, 1 paragraph description of the issue and why you feel strongly about it. Once your instructor has approved this topic you may begin your research.

Weather observation assignment – Science

Daily Weather Observations:

As a part of the meteorology unit I will expect you all to make DAILY weather observations.  These observations should be done

  • At the same time each day
  • Using the same information gathering source

The purpose of this exercise will be to be able to start forecasting weather for the local area.  To do this you will use meteorological instrumentation AND your own observations of the natural world.  Therefore, this exercise will be more easily completed if you are NOT doing it at midnight every night.

 

I have no preference if you want do handwrite this in a notebook, or if you want to type this or put it on an excel spreadsheet – whatever works for you.  The website I recommend using would be

https://www.wunderground.com/us/mn/minneapolis

REMEMBER that most data is collected at such places as regional airports – so if you are looking at Minneapolis data and you live in Brooklyn Center your data (official) will probably be from Bloomington (the airport) and your observations will be from Brooklyn Center.

Pretend that you are in Minneapolis. Starting from March 1st to March 28th

Every day you need to record the:

Date:

Time:

Wind:

Visibility:

Temperature (both air and dewpoint)

Relative Humidity

Air pressure in inches

Wind chill or heat index

And any precipitation (and what type)

PLUS you need to make personal observations – these can include what the sky looks like (cloudy, clear, what types of clouds, how many, if the wind is blowing, what direction, how strong (relatively speaking) how it “feels” out and anything else you can think of….)

This looks like a lot – but trust me it won’t take you that long.

At the end of each week graph your data.  You can do it on separate graphs – Make a graph for temperature, barometric pressure, humidity,  and wind speed.  Do you notice any apparent correlations between the events?  What are they?  Or conversely what aren’t they?

You will be doing this for the ENTIRE length of the unit – so you should be able to complete 28 days of data and four sets of graphs.

Total 50 points

Daily Observations – 1 point a day – 21 total

Graphs 6 points a week – 18 total

Correlation between observations and graphs –3 points a week – 9 points total.

Name on paper – 2points

 

Assignment total – 50 points
