Why?

After reading Chapter Five, first point to one aspect of the chapter that you found to be of interest. Once one of your classmates as pointed to an aspect of Chapter Five, try to identify an original area in order to avoid redundancy. Next, of all the myths and realities that were presented regarding predator priests, which myth surprised you the most? Which reality surprised you? Why? Next, after reflecting upon both Chapter Five and the presentation, “Signature, Modus Operandi, and Paraphilia,” why do you suppose that the vast majority of men, rather than women, have paraphilia? Do you think this is likely to change anytime soon. Next, consider Rozee’s 1993 study which found that in 35 non-industrialized societies some forms of rape are socially acceptable. Why would a society find some forms of rape to be acceptable? Do you think this has changed in any of these societies since 1993? Next, after reading Chapter Six, what do you think motivates some individuals who work in hospitals or nursing homes kill their patients? What, if anything, can be done to identify and stop these individuals before they commit multiple murders? Finally, once you have answered all of the above questions, please pose an original thinking question to the class.

Explain.

Instructions: (The following questions must be answered based on the information from the article, not just your own opinion). You have read the interview article “Ask a Feminist on Black Lives Matter.” Now discuss the following three questions in your discussion post and ask your classmates your own question about the topic that you would like them to answer. End your post by answering one of your classmate’s questions. 1) (In 200 words) Regarding racial justice movements, what are the three things that the role of black feminism does? Explain what you think. 2) (In 200 words) How are social justice movements, especially black social justice movements, learning from and forwarding their message through “borrowing from a queer lens”? Explain. 3) (In 200 words) There seems to be a “tipping point” in the visibility, legitimacy and acceptance of the stories regarding cis and trans women of color enabling them to take a leadership role in social movement organizations. What other ways (other than mainstream media) can be used to fully integrate those conversations and push these messages forward much easier than in the past? Why is this so important? 4) Now, ask your classmates your own question about this topic that you would like them to answer and explain why.

What are the likely causes (i.e., underlying hazards) of the symptoms that the mason is reporting?

Review the OSHA Recommended Practices for Safety and Health ProgramsLinks to an external site. six (6) step approach to hazard prevention and control and use your findings to analyze the case study presented below.
Incident Summary
A brick mason laying brick and spreading adhesive.
A brick mason was removing deteriorating mortar from bricks in a building that was being renovated. To loosen the mortar, the mason was using a hand-held grinder and vibratory hammer. After several days of work, the brick mason reports to the job site trailer and reports to you that he has started to develop wheezing and shortness of breath and has numbness and tingling in his hands and fingers. You send the worker to the occupational health clinic to be seen by a physician and now you must initiate a course of hazard identification and control of the hazards that have caused the worker’s symptoms.
What are the likely causes (i.e., underlying hazards) of the symptoms that the mason is reporting?
What are some options for controlling the hazards presented in this case study?
How feasible, effective, and permanent will the control options that you found during your research be in controlling the hazards that you identified? Be sure to reference the appropriate level of the “Hierarchy of Controls” for each of the control options that you discuss.
What is the “hazard control plan” for this task going forward on your site?
What are some ways that the effectiveness of the hazard controls that you have selected can be assessed and monitored?

Whatever.

This assignment will emulate any (and many) of the thesis-driven articles replete with evidence, examples and support investigating the intersections of identity and food OR culture and food OR humanity and food. As such, it seeks to provide just one possible, captivating and persuasive answer (with tons of proof!) to just one of the following questions: 1) What does food say about me? 2) What does food say about my culture? 3) What does food reveal about humanity in general?
From Mishan’s “What We Write About When We Write About Food”:
Still, when contemporary food writers (and, I suppose, I am one) stray from celebrating flavors to probe the larger issues surrounding the parade of dishes to our tables — exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year — some readers complain. Food should not be political, they insist. Food is universal; food unites us. Let us have our cakeLinks to an external site. in peace.
For this Assignment #2 Brainstorm (or “Shitty First Draft”): ”you need to do this part”!!
Let’s muddy the waters a little bit and get our hands dirty and wrestle out some potential seeds that could blossom into giant fruiting trees down the road! When you consider food carefully, what topics come up for you? Mishan mentions “exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year…” as topics that swell up around the topic of food for her. Which of those topics that she’s listed have you heard about, read something in the news about or have considered before/have an opinion about? If you haven’t considered these topics around food, which might interest you enough to do some digging around? Jot down any thoughts you have around Mishan’s topics.
Now brainstorm any additional topics and thoughts that pop up for you, personally, around food. Have you ever dieted? Lost sleep over body issues and your relationship to food? Do you know anything about these Keto and Paleo things that seems to be everywhere now? Do you follow any food bloggers or YouTubers? Consider yourself a foodie? Watch The Great British Bake-Off or Top Chef religiously? Any mukbang now and then? Ever eaten an insect? Or anything else your typical American would find “gross” or “unappealing”? etc. etc. etc.
Jot down any thoughts you have about any or all of the above and in any way that you find helpful. Maybe you want to draw a bubble diagram. Maybe you want to make a bullet point list. Maybe you want to record yourself talking. Whatever. I simply want you to start engaging with the topic of food and its relationship with you, your culture, and our world and humanity. Upload any kind of file here to show how you are beginning to engage with Assignment #2!
Oh yeah, and don’t forget what Anne Lamott says: “The first draft is the child’s draft, where you let it all pour out and then let it romp all over the place, knowing that no one is going to see it and that you can shape it later. You just let this childlike part of you channel whatever voices and visions come through and onto the page.”

However, thinking back on mine, i don’t think i added any science related milestones and kpis (i do think those are important as well), so i plan to go in and change up some of mine.”

My Partner feedback “I finished reading your milestone 2. I think you presented the problem you would like to resolve and the need to resolve it well. The first thing I would like to comment on is that I did not see anything on the solution. I believe for the second part, he wanted us to talk about our solution and finding research to support its feasibility, but I could have misunderstood. I think the only other comment I would have is that I think you approached the milestones too much from a science perspective and not a business perspective. If I’m correct, he wanted us to present those points to potential funders, so I did my milestones from a business perspective. For example, I think I did some milestones like finding my target audience, constructing a 5 to 10-year plan, determining different costs so I could get a better estimate on the amount of funding I would need, etc. However, thinking back on mine, I don’t think I added any science related milestones and KPIs (I do think those are important as well), so I plan to go in and change up some of mine.”
