Choose one topic from the Following:

1. How do you feel about aborting a fetus because it is found to have some genetic or physical defect? Do you agree with the authors that a woman who chooses to abort a fetus rather than to give birth to a disabled child is accepting society?s negative views about people with disabilities? Are there other reasons that a woman might make such a choice (e.g., she may fear that having a child with disabilities will place too great a strain on her economic and emotional resources)?    As an alternative to focusing on abortion as the issue, it would be interesting to steer toward a discussion about supporting people?s decisions to have children with disabilities and what that might look like so they don?t feel that they are required to have an abortion.Click here to receive assistance in this and other related assignments


2.   Read the following paragraph and then answer the questions that follow it:

           Because women?s work is never done and is underpaid, unpaid, boring or repetitious and we?re the first to get the sack and what we look like is more important than what we do and if we get raped it?s our fault and if we get bashed we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we?re nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we?re nymphs and if we don?t we?re frigid and if we love women it?s because we can?t get a ?real? man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we?re neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect community care for children we?re selfish and if we stand up for our rights we?re aggressive and ?unfeminine? and if we don?t we?re typical weak females and if we want to get married we?re out to trap a man and if we don?t we?re unnatural and because we still can?t get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can?t cope or don?t want a pregnancy we?re made to feel guilty about abortion and … for lots and lots of other reasons we are part of the women?s liberation movement.  (Author Unknown)

     Questions:
     A. How do you feel about the passage?
     B. Do you agree and/or disagree with it?
     C. Could a similar passage be written about men? Why or why not?
 

3.  What do you think will happen regarding same-sex marriage laws in the future? Will same-sex marriage be banned or will acceptance continue to grow? Why do we as a societyfeel the need to define some behavior or people as deviant? Does it serve any purpose for us as a society to do so?

Choose ONE topic from the Following:

Option 1  Studying Poverty to Find Solutions 

Esther Duflo?s 13 minute TED talk (www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/esther_duflo_social_experiments_to_fight_poverty.html) documents a scientific approach to ending poverty. Alleviating poverty is more guesswork than science, and lack of data on aid?s impact raises questions about how to provide it. But Clark Medal winner Esther Duflo says it?s possible to know which development efforts help and which hurt?by testing solutions with randomized trials.  Design your own study of how to bring a bit more prosperity or educational opportunity to the poor in either a storm-ravaged neighborhood in Texas, Louisiana or Florida; an inner city neighborhood in Chicago or Omaha; or a number of rural counties in Kentucky, Mississippi or Nebraska.  Use Duflo’s descriptions as a model and refer back to the notes on research methods in Module 1.

Option 2  Is it an honor or just fun and games?

Please follow this link to an article by Ward Churchill about using Native American mascots:http://www.dickshovel.com/crimes.html  (right click on the link and open it in a new window)  Once you have read the article, please answer the following:

 A.   Should sports teams use Native Americans as mascots?

B.  Are some of the names more offensive than others? Which ones? Why?

C.  Why would many Native Americans protest the use of their religious and/or cultural symbols as sports mascots and sports rituals?

D. Why do teams and their fans sometimes refuse to change the mascots?

E.  What is your perspective on this issue?  Explain.

Option 3   Race Implicit Association Test

Take the Race Implicit Association Test (https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/selectatest.html) and read the supporting material to get a sense of the impact of living in a racially segregated society. Write a paper analyzing why the test asks you to work fast and what the connection might be between this test and institutional racism. Click here to receive assistance in this and other related assignments

Option 4  What Scientists Know about Race

Listen to the Radiolab episode about race (www.radiolab.org/2008/dec/15/) and explore the website. In your paper, summarize the main points that scientists know about race.  Identify some of the new information you learned from listening to this NPR program.

A resume? provides a summary of your skills, abilities, and achievements. It may also include a description of the type of job you desire.

Tips for a Better Resume

This came from Heloise published in the Omaha World Herarld.  Couldn’t have said it better myself. 

It is important to make a good impression when applying for a job in person or through your resume. Potential employers may look at your resume for only 15 ? 20 seconds; it is the first ? and many time the only ? impression! Here are some hints for composing a resume if you are just entering the job market:

·         To sound more professional, don?t overuse the words ?I,? ?my,? etc.

·         Have all the information on how you can be reached at the top of the document.

·         There are three types of resumes: chronological, functional and a combination of the two. Do some research to decide which is best for you and the industry you are applying for. Use action verbs like ?directed,? ?collected,? ?assisted,? ?negotiated,? ?devised,? ?generated,? etc.

·         Write in short bullet points, and use as much space on the paper as possible.

Journal Reflection Paper
When we were first assigned a project of journaling for the semester, I figured I would have a bit of difficulty completing the project. I have never been the most open person when it comes to expressing or chronicling emotions and thoughts; I have always dealt with problems internally and as such found that the process of writing down some thoughts daily would be very tedious and unfulfilling. Since I was 16 years old, I have in some way, shape or form dealt with the combination of anxiety and depression. In fact, for most of the initial years of these feelings, I had difficulty in even expressing the ways that anxiety and depression were affecting me—I tended to ignore all feelings I had back in that period and instead chose to self-medicate daily through the repeated use of marijuana. That all changed two years ago when I began seeing a therapist regularly and have since found a more productive way of dealing with emotional and mental disturbances. Yet, this created an additional problem for this journaling project as I have become accustomed to speaking weekly to my therapist and use those session as my form of “release.” As such, I found it to be repetitive to chronicle my thoughts and feelings because I have settled into a routine of when and how I address the mental challenges that I experience throughout my week. These challenges definitely impeded my initial ability to keep a journal and as such, I was unable to write anything down for the first two weeks of the project.
