Climate change patterns around the world

 

This week you will write a paper on the potential public health impacts of climate change on different parts of the world. Many experts predict that climate change will impact different parts of the world in different ways. Some areas of the world may see increased periods of drought while others may experience increased periods of flooding (IPCC, 2007).

 

In addition, developing countries will most likely be impacted more severely than developed countries (United Nations Development Program [UNDP], n.d.).

 

Using the Argosy University online library resources and reliable Internet resources, prepare a paper on three of the most important examples of how climate change will impact public health. Be sure to address the following:

 

  • Examine how the outcomes from climate change on public health will differ between developed and developing countries.
  • Describe what the future will be like for these public health issues as climate change becomes more severe.
  • Explain the mitigation and response plans in place to ameliorate the effects of these changes.
  • Assess the feasibility of these plans. If you could design a plan to address this issue, would it differ from current plans? If so, how?

 

Be sure to support your positions with scholarly references—including a reference list—and appropriate examples.

 

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.

 

By Wednesday, March 13, 2013, deliver your assignment to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

Random act of kindness | Psychology homework help

 

 

Random Act of Kindness

 

 

One important topic in the field of social psychology is explaining why people help others.  The purpose of this assignment is to better understand the psychology of helping by performing a “random act of kindness,” a good deed done when there is no expectation for help and there is no possibility of reward for the deed.    

 

You may choose any random act of kindness that you wish, with the following restrictions:

 

  1. Your act of kindness does not need to be something big or expensive.  You are NOT being graded on how big of an act of kindness you do.  I am more interested in how well you relate your behavior to the theories of helping. 
  2. What you do must be completely legal and ethical, cannot get you into trouble in any way, and cannot put yourself or anyone else at risk of either physical or psychological harm.
  3. The act of kindness must be something that is outside of your normal routine.  Doing your chores at home, for example, would not count as a random act of kindness.
  4. The act must be something that you do deliberately and on purpose, rather than something that you do that just happens to be helpful to someone else.

 

 

After performing the task, write a short (1 page) essay in which you

 

  1. describe what you did:  when, where, and to whom
  2. describe the emotional experience of helping:  what emotions did you feel before, during and after your act of kindness? 
  3. briefly relate your experience to one of the models  that explain why people help:  was your behavior better explained by the egoistic model, the evolutionary model, or the or the empathy-altruism model?  Explain.

Assignment 1: lasa 2 identity formation

Please pay attention to the * Note

 

 

We have learned that adolescence is a time of transition between childhood and adulthood. A critical milestone of this stage is the ability to successfully achieve a sense of identity. Around the world, there are different rites of passage to mark the transition to adulthood. In the United States, this might include obtaining a driver’s license, landing one’s first job, senior prom, or high school graduation. In this assignment, we will explore the role that family and society play in the development of the individual’s sense of self.

By Saturday, August 24, 2013, create two documents for parents of minority teens 1) A 9–12-slide PowerPoint presentation (complete with speaker’s notes) and 2) an accompanying 1–2-page handout/flier in Word document or PDF format. Be sure that both illustrate the following:

  1. Describe common rites of passage from two cultures around the world and compare them to a common American rite of passage. Possible resources might include National Geographicand the Argosy University Online Library.
  2. Compare and contrast these rites to common US rites of passage. Do they coincide with the physical, cognitive, or socioemotional changes taking place at this age? Describe which specific changes (physical, cognitive, or socioemotional) they coincide with. Does this explain their importance in a particular culture?
  3. How might such a social ritual, such as a rite of passage, influence the identity formation process of adolescents?
  4. In light of Erikson and Marcia’s theories, discuss how the process of identity development is affected when the adolescent belongs to a minority group (racial, ethnic, sexual, or religious). Be sure to explain these theories and how they apply to identity development.
  5. Summarize research from at least two peer-reviewed* studies on the effect of minority status on identity development, ensuring you describe the main findings of the study as well as the research methods used to study the topic.
  6. Apply the information you gathered from the online notes, textbook, and research articles to provide at least three practical recommendations for what the family, school, and community can do to ease the process for adolescents.

*Peer-reviewed means an article from a reputable journal, which can be found in the Argosy University Online Library. Peer reviewed indicates that other professionals in the field have reviewed and deemed it worthy of publication, in contrast to much if what we find online: someone posting something he or she wants to, without someone else verifying that the research methods were rigorous enough and the study is valid. Use your textbook and course lectures as your primary resources, as well as articles from the Argosy University Online Library. If you must supplement from a website, do NOT use .coms. Instead, look for .org, .gov, and sometimes .edu for more reputable sources. Never use Wikipedia or about.com.
