lit 202 3 weeks assignments

week 1:Before the study guide is due, you have two forums. For this one, I ask you to do the following:

  • Ask a question that connects two of the readings you have done so far this week. You might ask your classmates to compare, or to react to, or to explain something. You might ask them to apply personal experience or to connect to the current day. Up to you.
  • Next, pick one person to respond to by the same deadline. As always, no late work, proofread your post for full points, and when you reply, type @Student name so we can trace who talks to whom. Points: 8 for post, 12 for answer.
  • due feb 27

week 2:Here, I want you to comment on a theme or idea that you think connects two or more of the texts you read over the last two weeks. Anything you want to comment on is fine, but you must use a quote from one of the two works you are referring to.

So if you want to comment on, say, how music plays into literature of this time, you might quote from Ginsberg or Brooks, showing us how lyrical the poems sound when read aloud. Again, anything you think is a common thread.

Reply to a classmate, agreeing, commenting, complimenting, questioning the connection this person made, same deadline. 5 points. As always, no late work, proofread your post for full points, and when you reply, type @Student name so we can trace who talks to whom. Due march 6

  • Welty, intro and Petrified Man

    1. Who was Welty?
    2. The story has features of newness but it also hearkens back to earlier American writing in the use of local color and regional details. How does Welty seem to connect the literary traditions of the past while still emerging as a writer of this new era?
  • Bellow, intro and Adventure of Augie Marsh, Chp 1

    1. Who was Bellow?
    2. The story is decidedly urban. What about it makes it a city story and how does that relate to America at this time?

    1. Who was Brooks?

    3. Tell me your reaction to Maus. Like it? Dislike? Why?
    4. What makes this literature uniquely American, in your own opinion?
  • Baldwin, intro and “Going to Meet the Man”

    1. Who was Baldwin?
    2. What would you say the “moral” or lesson of the story here is?
    3. Comment on Baldwin’s use of language. Look at his words, and also the words he gives his characters. What does his style suggest about the author himself?
    4. Is there a current/modern connection in this story and our daily lives right now?
  • Ginsberg, intro and “Supermarket in California”

    1. Who was Ginsberg?
    2. Read the poem silently, then aloud.
    3. Comment on the language. You should be looking for alliteration, assonance and consonance (Links to an external site.). (Links to an external site.) You can look those up if you don’t know what they are. I am interested in your reaction to the aural experience of the poem.
    4. Do you think this poem has a “meaning” or is it like a piece of abstract art, meant to be savored but not understood?
    5. And if we think that art can serve this purpose, pleasure and playful, refusing to be conventional, is this a kind of rebellion that might reflect somehow on the time it was written? Think about the 1960s and how that time was a breaking from convention and tradition of the 1950s.
  • Silko, intro and “Lullaby”

    1. Who was Silko?
    2. React to Lullaby. Like it? Not? Explain.
    3. Is there a current/modern connection in this story and recent events in American? I’m thinking of Native Americans in the news in the recent past.
  • Lahiri, intro and “Sexy”

    1. Who is Lahiri?
    2. The story shows culture clash, something very huge in this period of time. Give me two examples of eastern culture clashing (or meshing) with western culture.
    3. Lahiri is a master of indirect characterization, meaning she shows, not tells, you about people. Tell me something you know about one of these characters, through something they do or say (or don’t do or don’t say), rather than something Lahiri writes specifically about them.More on indirect vs direct characters at this link (Links to an external site.)
  • Diaz, intro and “Drown”

    1. Who is Diaz?
    2. Drown captures two American phenomenon: a boy growing up in American, and a multi-cultural boy growing up in America. Which details do you think could apply to most any boy growing up in America, if any? And which do you think apply specifically to the experience of a multicultural boyhood? Find two of each, or if you think there are only multicultural details, and no universal details that would apply across all/any boys, find four examples of the multicultural boyhood experience.

environmental epidemiology 1

Environmental epidemiology is the study that has focused attention on the environmental impacts to human health. The exhaust from vehicles, the plastic bags blowing in the trees, the smell of paint, etc. We have many questions that we can investigate that directly impact us. In New Jersey, many houses were built when lead was still in paint—perhaps this may be a question you have about your house. Can the stress from traffic add to the risk of high blood pressure? We study these types of things through epidemiology. Epidemiology investigates the distribution of disease and/or injury in human populations. Choose a topic of your interest where surveillance data is collected from the CDC( Write a twopage, double spaced summary of the article you have chosen including the importance of the topic, key findings, needed public health action, and why you chose the topic.

hinduism discussion response

Used simply in the United States, the word “karma” is widely used, even if usually misunderstood. Though there are many synonyms for the word, its most common sense of use regards the idea that “what goes around comes around.” In other words, the actions we may engage in today will have results sometime in the future that we cannot predict today. The religious use of karma in Hinduism, however, is vastly more complicated. Recently, I ran into the use of this word that resulted in my insulting a case worker at the hospital.

We were discussing a case in which the patient was being discharged back home under the care of a local hospice. She was the social worker active on her case and was telling me about how difficult the discharge had been. In her view, the family had been very hard to work with. They all seemed comfortable with their matriarch going home in the full knowledge that she would likely die soon from her cancer. But something had got in the way according to her. She worked for the palliative care service at the hospital. The patient’s care had been well managed by the palliative care team and it did not appear there were any problems with moving back home and taking up with the local hospice. The patient and her family were clearly Hindu and I had already worked with our spiritual care department to make sure that our Chaplain, who was most well informed and connected in the Hindu community, was working with them. The case worker, however, was not tuned in to the religious realities of the patient and her family.

The case worker and I were reviewing the case because the hospital patient experience department had received a complaint about her work. According to the family, something had gone wrong during one of her conversations so we were going over it in very close detail. I had asked her what religion the family was and she replied that she was not sure but did not think they were Christian. In describing her conversation with me, she said at one point, “I told them hat I thought they might want to consider the State’s new Assisted Suicide law, but that karma on that sort of thing might be a bitch.” I paused slightly before asking her in response, “What is karma?” She said something about destiny and reincarnation, so I asked again, “What is karma?” Looking a bit confused, but working with me, she said, “Well, it’s when you do something wrong, eventually something wrong will happen to you.” So, I changed my question ever so slightly, “Where does the word ‘karma’ come from?” Now clearly upset, she responded that she did not know, but that it had something to do with reincarnation.

Questions for Reflection

1. Do licensed clinical social workers have any responsibility to know anything about Hinduism?

2. Can we fault someone growing up in America these days for using common vernacular that has come to us from particular religious traditions through the process of immigration?

3. Clearly the case worker does not know the significance of karma, nor does she know that her patient and the patient’s family were Hindu. What are some of the deeper implications of karma that might have caused the family to be so offended by the case worker’s claim that “karma may be a bitch if you consider assisted suicide?”

signature assignment power point presentation criminal profile

In your Signature Assignment, you will apply your profiling skills during an investigation. Imagine that you have been hired by the FBI to work as a profiler. In this assignment, put your skills to the test by developing a PowerPoint presentation that delivers your findings to the FBI agents working on the case. You may use any information you have developed from previous assignments or create new information (e.g., suspect impressions report and summary identified information pertaining to demographics, physical characteristics, possible motive). You may use that information in your Signature Assignment. However, your goal for this assignment is to ensure that use your PowerPoint presentation to conveyed to the FBI that you have developed a solid criminal profile based on the following:

  • Identify the crime and crime scene in a well-organized manner (with specific details).
  • Indicate any physical and emotional attributes of the suspect (e.g., height, weight, piercings, markings). Is the suspect known to “fly off the handle”, or does he/she have a history of property destruction? If so, how do you know this–who provided you with this information and are they credible?
  • Identify your possible suspect and present rationale (e.g., What led you to this hypothesis? What physical or other identifying information connected the victims to the alleged suspect? What geographic considerations were factored into your hypothesis?).
  • Identify information about the victims in the case. How many, were there similarities? If so, what where they? Are the victims connected to each other in some way (e.g., work, friends, school, etc.)?
  • Determine the possible motivation for the criminal committing the crime (i.e., childhood history, mental illness, significant life event).
  • Include any other relevant history, such as prior arrests or hospitalizations.

Be sure your presentation demonstrates that you have developed a solid theory of the suspect and that you understand the crime that was committed, as well as the victims associated with the crime and any additional information. Specifically, you must accurately define the connections that exist among your crime scene analysis, victim information, and key findings to develop your profile. The goal is to provide the FBI with the knowledge you have to help the agents solve the crime. Your presentation should include a summary that explains the crime, crime scene, and victim(s). The summary is intended to provide details that lead to your analysis; therefore, they should reflect scholarship and application of the theories learned.

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.

Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)

Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT
