For this seminar you will discuss ideas in the following three pieces of media, we have already reviewed, using the concept of identity politics (https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/identity-politics/ to frame your discussion. ) First, watch and annotate the videos below. As you take notes, think about what the speakers and narrators reveal about identity (https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/identity-politics/ power), (https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/feminist-power/), discrimination (https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/discrimination/#ConDis). Especially make note if any of the information is new to you, or surprising, or provoking. Then, compose an initial post that explains the ideas in the videos and offers your analysis. In other words, What’s your Critical Reaction? By now, we have studied many features of identity, so you will a lot of material to draw from and refer back to as you write. Allow yourself plenty of time to read and thoughtfully respond to your colleagues as you’ve done in previous discussions. Here are the videos to watch for the writing: https://youtu.be/sa1iS1MqUy4 https://youtu.be/ge7i60GuNRg https://youtu.be/kLMBrLeBMS8
A) Research poverty in the United States generally, including what causes poverty, what impacts it is having, and what we are doing to alleviate it. B) Write an essay in which you suggest and detail your OWN original idea about how we might deal with ONE SPECIFIC ASPECT OF poverty that is either a) a variation on a plan that is currently being implemented or b) your own completely original idea. Keep in mind the following as you work, that SOLUTIONS to major social or economic problems usually come in ONE of four forms: 1. You can suggest a change in the law or in policies, such as by supporting raising the minimum wage. 2. You can suggest raising awareness and educating people, such as by encouraging large corporations to recognize that constantly changing work schedules are very difficult for low-income workers and makes them feel even more “unstable.” 3. You can help to found an organization or a non-profitan NGO: “non-governmental organizationto provide a service not otherwise available. For instance, some organizations exist now to provide CHILD CARE to low-income parents so that they can work and not have to offset their earnings by hiring a babysitter. 4. You can develop a new type of technology or consumer product that might help alleviate poverty. For instance, the SMARTPHONE that we all rely on has been a very important tool in helping to alleviate poverty, as it gives many poor people access to critical information that they might not otherwise have. Take a look at this article, for instance, if you don’t believe me: Technical Details The paper must be between 2200 – 2500 words long. (Include a word count near the top of page 1, please). The paper needs to be in MLA format and a Works Cited page is necessary. You must include a variety of sources, including at least ONE newspaper article, ONE “scholarly” article, and ONE source for statistics / basic facts on poverty released by the United States government. The paper needs to carefully follow the mandatory outline below. You need to quote at least FOUR of the articles listed on your Works Cited page using the classic “quote sandwich” technique in which you lead-into the quote with context information, such as the author’s name, and follow the quote with an in-text citation in MLA format and commentary about how the quote relates to your larger point. In addition, you are encouraged to quote from any of the articles we have read in class. However, these will not count towards your total of four articles that you need to quote. The paper needs to make multiple and frequent use of relevant cause-and-effect words, such as “because,” “impacts,” and “makes.” Further, every time you use these terms they must be in bold. A minimum of SIX uses is required. Please count these for me and list the number near your name on the rough and final drafts. The paper needs to go through a writing process, meaning that you need to do pre-writing, brainstorming, and a draft review stage, all before the final draft is due. Required Outline INTRODUCTION: The introduction to the paper should begin with a HOOK that helps you engage the reader and make clear just how bad the problem of poverty in the United States is. It should go on to give some general background by a) defining what poverty is and b) summarizing a variety of sources that explain what factors are causing poverty and what we are doing to alleviate it. You should end your introduction by focusing on a SPECIFIC and NARROW ELEMENT of poverty, such as the “health impacts” of poverty or on “lack of access to education” and suggesting that you have come up with a way to deal with that narrow and specific problem. LITERATURE REVIEW: The next part of the paper should be a literature review in which you try to summarize what others have said about this NARROW AND SPECIFIC aspect of poverty that you are now focusing on. For instance, if you’ve narrowed your focus to the issue of FOOD STAMPS, you should try to summarize all of the different ideas and opinions about food stamps that you can find. This section should begin with this sentence, or one very similar to it: “We are currently trying to deal with this problem in a variety of ways.” PROPOSAL: Next, you need to present your own original solution to the problem OR a variation on a currently-implemented solution to the problem that you think would work better. This should take you 500 words or more in which you might a) name your solution, b) go into detail about what the solution would do and why it works better than what is currently available to the poor, and c) discuss practical details such as how the solution would be funded, what political opposition there might be to the idea, and so on. This section should begin with this sentence, or one very similar to it: “My solution, which I will outline below, is more likely to work than these other attempts for a variety of reasons.” CONCESSION/REFUTATION: Next, you need to present a concession and a refutation to your proposal in which you consider at least two different reasons why a reasonable person might not agree that your proposal is best and then refute that position by offering good arguments as to why that “reasonable person” would likely be wrong. This section should begin with this sentence, or one very similar to it: “Some might argue that my solution may not work, for a variety of reasons.” CONCLUSION: Finally, you should conclude your paper by doing all of the usual things one expects in a conclusion: panning to the horizon, appealing to the audience, and some capping irony.
Manipulating a photo has been around for as long as photography has, but Photoshop has made it a lot easier to manipulate images. There are some great, creative ways to use Photoshop to express ideas that may not be possible otherwise (we will look at some artists who use Photoshop to create artwork in the next unit). I have worked in Photoshop for 20 years and teach Photo 12: Intro to Photoshop at FCC. That being said, Photoshop can be used in ways that may feel deceitful. After reviewing this unit’s materials, watch the video below: https://youtu.be/wA331SpzYy4 Answer the following questions then respond to one other student’s post: What is your opinion when it comes to photoshopping images to sell a product? Do you see it as being creative or deceptive? Why? Here is the online lecture https://spark.adobe.com/page/92BjZMbqRaOCb/
Research Paper ( this is the feedback I got from my teacher, Your in-text citations and works cited need to follow MLA format. Focus on naysayers. For instance, why should someone whos a non-Christian be bound by Christian rules about marriage? Alternatively in a secular democracy why should we be governed according to religious doctrine you havent explained these. If you could fix the stuff in the feedback that would Be amazing. Introduction: Families have been created since the beginning of society. Biblically it started with Adam and Eve, they were put on earth to procreate and have a family. The foundation of the family with a man, wife, and children have been known to be sturdy and dependable in all types of situations and times. As society has grown the conventional way has changed. Same-sex partnerships and marriage have not only become common but legal in many states and countries. Some call this way of life a condition while others call it an unhealthy choice (Chamie, Joseph, and Barry Mirkin). In modern world society, sexual minorities do not hide their condition and openly declare this. Debate on legal status of same-sex marriage is still underway and there are many different opinions on the subject. The purpose of this essay is to shed light on varying opinions before reaching conclusions (Acker). Arguments For: marriage is a constitutional and fundamental right, it is the basis for creating the most important of all possible unions in which a man and a woman can have. The right to marry occurs for any couple who wants to define themselves in their connection with each other and often with God. In the Bible, God created man and woman, in the book of Genesis Adam and Eve were created to procreate in the world and bring to pass family. It also states, It is not good for man to be alone: I will make him a helper fit for him (Bible. Genesis 10:3). That is why after a man was created Eve was also created. The creation of mother Eve as a wife for Adam is one of the main intentions of God. This was to ensure the life of man in love, for God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. The scriptures strongly declare marriage is a union of a man and a woman based on love and mutual understanding for the birth of children. As the Patriarch himself explained, such measures must be taken in response to a wide international discussion on the issue of same-sex marriage. Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexuality and adulterous (Bible. Hebrews 13:4). The idea of marriage helps to relieve fear in some. Often people connect with the opposite sex because they do not want to be alone. Many prefer to share their knowledge and likes with someone who has the same desires. One of the most important common denominators between a man and woman is the couples desire to have children and raise them in a cohesive and common environment. Many believe this is a legal and God-given right which is inextricably linked to the right of birth, adoption and raising children. Others choose marriage with the thought of growing old together. Some relish in the idea that there will always be someone to take care of them up to their last days on earth. Opposing arguments: In the USA, same-sex couples can adopt children according to American lawmakers, they have fully explained the possibility of same-sex couples creating happy families. In accordance with the Constitution of the United States, same-sex couples who are married have the right to rely on the same legal regime as heterosexual couples, and limiting those rights would mean depriving them of their freedom of choice and their personal humiliation. For the traditional family, this has been considered a slap in the face because they feel it takes a strong union between a man and a woman to raise healthy and mentally stable children, and for them, this is very wrong in the sight of God. Sexuality is one of the most intimate facets of private life. In addition, it is protected through the prohibition of discrimination insofar as homosexuality is ones personal preference and condition. Yet there are many who flaunt their personal preferences in public, parades, and offend those who are near them. The normalization of marriage between homosexuals does not harm individuals, married, or those who choose to unite, it does not change their stability or in their expectations. In addition, the absence of reproductive function is not unrelated to heterosexual unions, whether for reasons of age, illness, or the freedom of choice. It is likely that the legal essence of the institution lies in the exclusive and permanent compromise with the couple involved heterosexual or homosexual (Gerstmann, Evan). Many loved ones who have family members that are homosexual are not only concerned about their sexual preference but what the psychological and health outcome can be with that lifestyle. There are a greater risk of suicide, sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS). The burden of taking care of someone with AIDS often falls to family members, even when they have a marital contract with a person of the same gender. The other opposing argument is that same-sex marriages are not entitled to health, life insurance, and Lawful rights as the conventional married couple. The new laws that have been put into effect have given all couples these rights and privileges. Conclusion: In expressing respect and consideration for the opinions held by the scientific doctrine and by some of the bodies of recognized competence called upon to examine the constitutional bill, I think that the legislation on marriage between citizens of the same sex is in accordance with the Constitution. Although I disagree with the foundations and the conclusion which have just been set out for the reasons which I will now develop. The argument that a historic, secular institution like marriage cannot be reached in one of its elements without immediately being distorted so that it becomes unrecognizable or irrelevant. In my opinion, it is so obvious that the legislation of same-sex marriage implies a rupture of the master image of the matrimonial institution. Although there are constitutional arguments for irradiation of fundamental rights over this typical social manifestation, no reservation arouses the option of the legislator to extend the subjective and modal spectrum of this institution. The legislator could have had recourse to a specific legal instrument, different from marriage, to achieve the equivalence of homosexual unions and, at the same time, more effectively capture its unique profiles. The solution has not been imposed by the Constitution. The Constitutional Court reaffirmed that the right to equality does not correspond to the hypothetical right to impose or require differential treatment (Chamie, Joseph, and Barry Mirkin).
