Difference between foreign perception and domestic reality.

In the book, Inventing Eastern European History, Larry Wolff argues Eastern Europe was constructed as an experimental domain that gave free play to the social theories and political reveries of the west.
Basing your response the works of Wolff, Andric, Habsweb, and the film Pan Tadeusz, evaluate the veracity of Wolff’s assertion.
To what extent was Eastern Europe a laboratory for social, political, and cultural ideas and policies generated elsewhere?
Consider carefully the difference between foreign perception and domestic reality.

Explain tenet of greek philosophy reflected in modern world

Choose the specific example of life in Ancient Greece or Hellenic world which you think illustrates clear break from cultures we studied in last two weeks. Let government, art, philosophy and anything else which you run across. Tell us about that example and how it varies from world and values of Mesopotamia, Egypt and other ancient civilizations around globe. (Make sure to watch BBC presentation on sculpture in MyArtsLab before replying this question.)
Explain one way that you see particular tenet of Greek philosophy reflected in modern worldview you live in. 19th century poet, Percy Shelley said, “We are all Greeks,” as he was so in awe of significant influence of Ancient Greeks on our cultural “destiny.” What do you believe he meant by this statement? Give one example of way Greek culture still survives in 21st century life. (Keep in mind that without Greek Idea, we might have had 2,000 or more years of Mesopotamians and Egyptians…Not to mention that First Chinese Emperor.)

Epic of Sunjata

Sunjata, also known as Sundiata, is the story of the Lion King of Mali. If you have seen Disney movies, this may not be the first time you saw a version of this story.  What makes Sunjata an epic tale? How doesSunjata compare with other epics such as Gilgamesh, Odyssey, and Beowulf?  What features have you noticed that Epics seem to have in common? What elements does Sunjata have that are considered epic? How is Sunjata different from and similar to our other epic tales?

Quantitative Research Designs

In order to find the best information on a topic, not only should you develop a question and search for resources, but you should also know how to analyze the value of the resources that you identify. There are different ways to evaluate resources, such as using the hierarchy of evidence, which you explored in Week 4 of this course. Another way to evaluate resources is to consider the appropriateness of the research design. Understanding how research designs contribute to the quality of a study is essential for being able to analyze resources when conducting a literature review or locating evidence for practice.
In this Discussion, you consider the different research designs and evaluate how these designs have been used to research a specific topic. You also consider strategies for selecting an appropriate research design.
To prepare:

  • Review the information in the course texton quantitative research designs. Focus on the information in Box 9.1, “Guidelines for Critiquing Research Designs in Quantitative Studies” located on page 210 of the course text.
  • Select a topic from the list below and search the Walden Library to find two different quantitative research studies addressing that issue:
    • Caregiver stress
    • Anxiety in children
    • Sleep apnea
    • Depression in college freshmen
    • Rural health care issues
    • Post-traumatic stress syndrome
    • Traumatic brain injury in veterans
    • Health effects of environmental contaminants
    • Bipolar disorder
    • End-of-life ethical issues
    • Alternative medicine
  • For each of the sources that you select, identify the type of quantitative research design used, and evaluate whether it is the most appropriate approach to the research.
  • Consider the ramifications of choosing an inappropriate design for a research study.

By Day 3

Post the topic you selected, references for the two sources you identified, and the quantitative research design used in each. Critique the appropriateness of the design used and justify your comments with information from the Learning Resources. Discuss the ramifications of choosing an inappropriate design for a research study.
Note: Post a (at least 300 word) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional material and organizational frames. Use the writing resources and the Discussion and Response Rubric to develop your post. A reference list is required. Use the most current evidence (usually less than or equal to 5 years old).

career development

Consider how formal and informal social systems exist in the workplace, and the communication patterns in these systems. Think about how these systems can affect all aspects of your internship.Create a discussion posting to include responses to the following questions:

  • In what ways might workplace conversations in formal and informal systems impact your internship?
  • How might you use these systems to your advantage in your internship?
  • Are there ways that you might be at a disadvantage in dealing with workplace communication systems as an intern? If so, what are some strategies you could use to manage your disadvantage and turn it into a positive?

Modern world history

Grade 9 Modern World History and Grade 10 American History 2017-18 Summer Assignment Notes Mr. Martin/Mr. East For your Fort Hayes World History/American History Summer Assignment you will be reviewing and preparing for a formative assessment (quiz) on basic Social Studies skills that will be given on the first day of class. Study the notes below carefully, then take the practice test. Bring these materials with you on the first day of school. The use of primary and secondary sources of information includes an examination of the credibility of each source, that is, whether or not they are believable. This is accomplished by checking sources for: 1) the qualifications and reputation of the author 2) agreement with other credible sources 3) perspective or bias of the author (including use of stereotypes) 4) accuracy and internal consistency 5) the circumstances in which the author prepared the source Sourcing 1. Consider who wrote a document as well as the circumstances of its creation. 2. Before reading a document, ask: a) Who wrote this? b) What is the author’s point of view? c) Why was it written? d) When was it written? (A long time or short time after the event?) e) Is this source believable? Why? Why not? Contextualization 1. Locate a document in time and place and to understand how these factors shape its content. 2. When reading a document, ask: a) What else was going on at the time this was written? b) What was it like to be alive at this time? c) What things were different back then? d) What things were the same? e) What would it look like to see this event through the eyes of someone who lived back then? Close Reading 1. Evaluate sources and analyze rhetoric by asking: a) What claims does the author make? b) What evidence does the author use to support those claims? c) How is this document supposed to make me feel? d) What words or phrases does the author use to convince me that he/she is right? e) What information does the author leave out? Corroboration 1. Consider details across multiple sources to determine points of agreement and disagreement. 2. Ask: a) What do other pieces of evidence say? b) Am I finding the same information everywhere? c) Am I finding different versions of the story? If yes, why might that be? d) Where else could I look to find out about this? Being able to correctly identify an author’s claim as well as cite the evidence the author uses to support this claim are important skills to master in studying history. Claim: A claim states your position on the issue you have chosen to write about. 1. A good claim is not obvious. Why bother proving a point nobody could disagree with? 2. A good claim is engaging. Consider your audience’s attention span and make claims which point out new ideas: teach the reader something new. 3. A good claim is not overly vague. Attacking enormous issues leads only to generalizations and vague assertions; keep it manageable. 4. A good claim is logical; it emerges from a reasonable consideration of the evidence. However, this does not mean that evidence has only one logical interpretation. . Evidence: the facts or data which you cite to support your claim. Like a lawyer presenting evidence to a jury, you must support your claim with facts; an unsupported claim is merely an assertion. Data can include: 1. Facts or statistics: objectively determined data about your topic. (Note: ―objective‖ may be open to debate.) 2. Expert opinion: Learned opinion, theory, and analysis that you should cite frequently, both to support your argument and to disagree with. Sources must be quoted, paraphrased, and cited appropriately. 3. Primary research: an explanation and discussion of your own research findings and how they relate to your topic. Grade 9 Modern World History/Grade 10 American History 2017-18 Summer Assignment Practice Quiz Mr. Martin/Mr. East Use the image below to answer question 1: “Washington crossing the Delaware: on the evening of December 25th, 1776, previous to the Battle of Trenton,” created in 1876 by John B.

A. This painting was created 100 years after the Battle of Trenton, so it is of limited use to a historian researching the Battle of Trenton. B. This painting is not a primary source, so it is not useful to a historian researching the Battle of Trenton. C. A historian would need more than just this one source to research the Battle of Trenton. D. Paintings are not reliable sources of information and are not useful for historians. 2. Which source on the writing of the Constitution would be considered a primary source? A. A textbook chapter about the Constitution B. A newspaper article written in 1861 C. Notes from the Constitutional Convention written by James Madison D. The book, An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution, by Charles Beard Below is an excerpt from President Benjamin Harrison’s proclamation of Columbus Day as a national holiday in 1892: “I Benjamin Harrison, President of the United States of America . . . do hereby appoint Friday, Oct. 21, 1892, the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus, as a general holiday for the people of the United States. On this day let the people…honor Columbus and the great achievements of the past four hundred years of American life… In the churches and in the streets, let there be expressions of gratitude to God for the devout faith of the Italian discoverer, and for His care and guidance which has directed our history and so abundantly blessed our people.” -Harrison’s Proclamation in The Record Union, July 22, 1892 3.

Describe the television commercials constitute

Directions: Respond to the assignment below. Be as clear and concise as possible with responses. Offer specific illustrations to support your opinions, observations, and concept applications. The paper is worth a maximum value of 50 points.
As Lessons 3 and 4 indicate, television commercials constitute a major form of popular culture. As advertisements, television commercials work largely on the basis of asking viewers to make connections among various things and then associating these things with the product being sold. To do so, commercials rely on viewers’ assumptions as ideologies upon which to build their messages.
For this assignment, choose one of the commercials from the 2017 Super Bowl, which can be found at Super Bowl LI Commercials, and analyze it to describe the major assumptions that it uses to make its connections and convey its messages. The commercial you select must be at least thirty seconds in duration.
In 2014, the cost of a thirty second Super Bowl XLVIII commercial averaged about $4 million or $133,333 per second. In 2015, a thirty second Super Bowl XLIX product pitch reached $4.5 million or $150,000 per second! In 2016, a half minute Super Bowl 50 (bypassing the use of the solitary Roman numeral L just for this year) commercial climbed to about $4.8 million (or $160,000 per second) to $5 million (or $166,667 per second). In 2017, the cost for a thirty second slot ran from $5 million (or $166,667 per second) to $5.5 million (or $183,333 per second)-a staggering amount!
Provide an opening paragraph that introduces the topic and the commercial. In one sentence at the end of your introduction, provide a thesis statement that gives the reader a specific sense of what overall conclusion(s) your paper will show. In this sentence, summarize the specific assumptions you will suggest the commercial uses and how these provide the basis for the connections upon which the commercial conveys its message(s).
In your second paragraph, describe the commercial in your own words. Provide a full description of what the commercial entails, including any significant parts of the commercial you will use in your analysis. Be sure your description names the product the commercial advertises.
In the remainder of your paper, use the specific details of the commercial to explain the overall message(s) of the commercial, the connections the commercial uses to convey its message(s), and what these connections assume the viewers believe or value.
Try to get at the deep cultural values and beliefs the commercial takes for granted, as these constitute the deep ideological basis for the commercial.
In the body paragraphs provide specific examples from the commercial you have chosen and clearly explain how these specific details illustrate your points.
In other words, link your specific examples to the opinions expressed in their topic sentences. All examples and all topic sentence opinions should link to the argument that appears in your thesis statement. Make sure you include enough commentary to make your reasoning clear. This assignment asks you to develop your own interpretations from what you see when you look at the commercial.
You will be graded on the overall essay format and how well you express and support your ideas. If you use essays from the course texts, be sure to cite them appropriately. See Step 7 of the “General Instructions for Papers” in this lesson for directions on how to cite the essays properly.
Create a fitting, descriptive title for your paper. You can summarize the content to follow or you can devise a clever title connected to what the body of your paper discusses.
Be sure to have a clear conclusion to your paper that brings together the major points from your paper.
