Do this discussion on the following selections from World of Ideas: “The Four Idols” by Francis Bacon “The Value of Science” by Richard P. Feynman Use the rules established in the previous discussion Here are the rules for posting in the discussion for the rest of this module: Write a paragraph that summarizes the text and respond to its main idea(s). Do that for each text in the required reading. Each paragraph should be at least 10 sentences long. Post a single paragraph in response to a classmate’s post (it can be an initial post or a reply). The goal of your reply post is to advance an argument. So you should focus on pointing out potential fallacies and errors, or you can pick up and run with an idea that you find has merit or power. You must do all of the above for full points. For clarification: This particular example would require three paragraphs (each at least 10 sentences).
(I don’t know how to write the ending, because the front still needs a lot of revision. I hope someone can help me look at my point of view. If my views need to be rewritten, please help me.) At the same time, I don’t know whether this movement must have a strong connection with the Trevor reform movement. Or you think it has enough connections. Here is the website: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/about/programs-services/ (explain the quote, logic, connection of paragraphs, add more quote and idea) This is the first draft. I hope you can help me organize it based on my first draft. All quotations only need to indicate in the article that I have classified the quotations into categories. I hope that if I use the quotation that I have not explained, I hope that it can be explained in the article. *Quote only needs to be marked with brackets and name The article is messy, I hope the logic can be sorted out. The support points of the article are not very clear, I hope more adjustments can be made. If there are not enough support points for the article, you can use the resources I gave. At the end of the article, I hope it can be added. The connectivity of the article is not very good, I hope it can be adjusted. *The level of the article does not need to be very high, but it requires logical clarity and connectivity. quote from the book??required?wrote by Eric Liu  As a result, in greater and growing numbers, we Americans no longer feel in control of our own everyday lives. We have little say in a workplace that makes us expendable.  As a result of this creeping public fatalism, we now have depressingly low levels of civic participation, knowledge, engagement, and awareness. Political life has been subcontracted out to a band of professionals-money people, message people, outreach people  Relationships and obligations, by reminding us that our responses to the world are contagious, reacquaint us with our own power to create contagion.  In American politics, power is presumptively illegitimate. It’s important to remember this. Our founding is premised on the notion that power is inherently hostile to freedom.  Seeing in systems means focusing not on isolated aspects of events or environments but on how things connect…Humans evolved to see in systems.  Experience teaches us that power will flow in novel ways as society evolves and becomes more complex, but that the animating force of power-the human will for desired outcomes-is constant.  Networks enable us to create exponential power from thin air: by setting off contagions of attitude and action, by activating every citizen as a potential mode of transmission, and by creating global webs of local knowledge and action.  The next strategy for doing that is to act reciprocally: to give your power to those who will give it back with interest. Creating power this way means building systems of mutual aid and then opening up opportunities for deep, cooperative self-government.  Remind yourself and others that power is in fact infinite-that we can create it where it does not exist. Our final strategy for doing that is simply this: act powerfully. *(These three are strategies that must include in the paper, but you don’t have to use all of them)  Humans, after all, have always been enmeshed in networks. From the Silk Road to the slave trade, from the moment the disciples of Jesus began to spread the gospel, power has spread via networks.  All these citizens, united, are making a web, a great archipelago of power that can bypass brokenness and monopolies Networked localism shifts the equation of power away from a dysfunctional national government  Amy Cuddy shows that “power poses”-stances and facial expressions that communicate personal power and confidence-are self-fulfilling. She shows it by describing her deep experimental research into the social effects of stance and physical presence. source of website? https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/fewer-americans-think-lgbt-people-face-discrimination/ ?important? https://time.com/5554531/equality-act-lgbt-rights-trump/ https://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Issues/LGBT/LGBTIpeople.pdf https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/lgbtq-rights/news/2018/01/18/445130/discrimination-prevents-lgbtq-people-accessing-health-care/ Main Article requirements and what they need: Prompt: Using direct support from Eric Lius book, Your More Powerful than you Think, and your own independent research, write a 6-8 page paper (MLA format) in which you examine and evaluate a campaign, organization, and/or a movement that attempts to address an issue/problem or to reimagine an alternative to a systemic status quo in our society. Specifically: Examine the problem/issue being addressed or the status quo being reimagined, using Lius framework for understanding power. What is the existing system of power? What are the existing sources of power and what are the conduits of power? Examine and evaluate the campaign, organization, and/or movement, using Lius framework for understanding power and his strategies for how to practice power. To what extent, and how effectively, are they using the strategies of power to effect change? ————————————————————————- Requirements: Please check the essay rubric for all of the elements of an effective essay. In addition, your essay should: Demonstrate your understanding of Liu’s argument and its concepts Apply your understanding of Liu’s argument and its concepts – by using it as a central framework for your examination and evaluation in response to the prompt Draw direct text support from Liu and sources from your own research Optional: you may also bring in previous readings for the course if you see a connection. For example, as you evaluate a campaign, you may notice the extent to which they use social media. Or you may notice the extent to which they utilize the press. You may see connections between Lius strategies and what Lunsford tells us about crafting an argument, specifically the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. You may see comparisons to other movements described by Hoffman. You may see examples of high stakes, strong tie activism. And the last: the rubric Scope: Responds to the prompt ambitiously, from a wide range of perspectives, articulating a complex argument and discussion of the topic. This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Essay Focus: The thesis meets the criteria for proficiency, PLUS it: conveys complex relationships among ideas of the essay (e.g., causality, condition) conveys the significance of the main claim and the larger conversation This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Organization: The organization meets the criteria for proficiency, PLUS it: conveys a complex logical structure with clear transitions. This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Paragraph Focus: Topic sentences meet the criteria for proficiency, PLUS they: indicate, through transitional devices, the logical relationships between ideas guide the reader through the larger organizational logic of the essay This criterion are linked to a Learning Outcome Paragraph Development: Paragraph development meets the criteria for proficiency, PLUS it: synthesizes text support from the range of readings smoothly demonstrates sophisticated analysis and interpretation, successfully showing how the writer’s ideas fit within the larger conversation (public discourse). This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Sentence Fluency: Sentences use coordination, subordination that show complex relationships between ideas, such as concession, condition, cause-effect. Sentences use apposition and other modifiers to add detail and depth.
A review article is not an original study. It examines previous studies and compiles their data and evidence to reach a conclusion that is statistically stronger than any in the single studies, mainly because of having more study subjects and more diversity among subjects. A good review usually concentrates on a theme, such as different theories, information on the progress of developing a new medical device, or how past developments influence new discoveries. A review might also ask that more resources be used to continue research in that specific field. Literature Searches Authors must ensure that the sources are legitimate research studies and so only use Google Scholar to find scientific articles for your review. Sources such as Popular Science and WebMD.com are not allowed to be used as sources for review articles. Your paper should include a minimum of 5 references. Manuscript Preparation Times New Roman, 12 point, 1.0-inch margins on all four sides, and 1.5 line spacing. No more than 5 pages (including cover page and references).

Accordingly, there is a need to map the literature and create an overview of the research. Methods: A scoping review approach was used to map literature on GS, including context and co-exposures (the GS exposome), and their associations with mental HWB. The review considers mental HWB definitions and measurements and how GS is characterized. Furthermore, the review aims to identify knowledge gaps and make recommendations for future research. Results: We identified a great diversity in study designs, definitions, outcome measures, consideration of the totality of the GS exposome, and reporting of results. Around 70% of the 263 reviewed studies reported a positive association between some aspect of GS and HWB. However, there is a limited amount of research using randomized controlled crossover trails (RCTs) and mixed methods and an abundance of qualitative subjective research. Conclusions: The discords between study designs, definitions, and the reporting of results makes it difficult to aggregate the evidence and identify any potential causal mechanisms. We propose key points to consider when defining and quantifying GS and make recommendations for reporting on research investigating GS and mental HWB. This review highlights a need for large well-designed RCTs that reliably measure the GS exposome in relation to mental HWB. Keywords: green space; mental health and wellbeing; exposome
