Week 4: Fluids and Beverages

Actions for Week 4: Fluids and Beverages                           

After reading Chapter 7 (Sections 7.1-7.7; paying special attention to sections 7.6 & 7.7) let’s discuss fluids/beverages. What are the top three fluids or beverages you consume on a regular basis  (examples: water, juice, milk, coffee, tea, beer, wine, hard liquor, soda/cola, sports drink, energy drink)? Be specific, if you say juice, what kind of juice? What kind of milk? How much and how often do you drink them? What are at least three pros and three cons for each of them? After reading the learning materials regarding fluid intake, what do you plan to continue regarding your regular fluid intake and what do you plan to change (if anything)?

outline for a term paper

MSE 227 Term Paper Outline

What is it? – 

A 1 page paper that demonstrates you have:

a topic,

the structure (organization)

very brief information for the paper sections, and

the specific sources (references)

What is its purpose? –
•    The outline is to show that you have started working on your paper.
•    That you know what you will discuss (sections/subtopics) and where you can find this information (sources and complete references).
•    It is important that you learn how to research and how to find relevant technical information for your paper.
•    The topic you select must be listed on the Moodle site and first PowerPoint (introduction to the course). You will not receive credit if topic is from a previous semester and has specifically been removed from the term paper list.
•    I must be able to locate your sources based on listed references. References must be properly formatted for the outline and final paper.

Below is an example of the basic structure and length for the outline.

You have to provide detailed information such as what is your topic, very briefly what will be discussed in each section, and specific references, properly formatted.

This is a technical report; provide relevant content, omit the use of “I” and “we”.
Start early. Don’t wait until the last minute.

ANT 202 Human Origins and Prehistory WK3-D2

 Field Note Collaborations for Week 3 


Field notes are a very important part of anthropological research.  Anthropologists use their field notes to make records about what they  are seeing and thinking while conducting research. For your  collaboration you are being asked to make your own field notes, based on  the assigned course materials. As you read the assigned material or  watch an assigned video for this week, download the Weekly Study Field Notes (Links to an external site.)  document and fill out a new set of field notes in which you are  expected to write down important concepts, parts of your reading that  you might have questions about, or even content that you find surprising  or interesting. Just like the notes that an anthropologist makes in the  field, your notes must be clear and easy to read because you will be  uploading and sharing them with your peers in the collaboration.

Guided Response: Save your file in the following format: StudentName-Field_Notes.docx. Attach your Field Notes Worksheet to your initial posting in the discussion forum. (View the Attaching Documents to Discussions video (Links to an external site.) to learn how to do this).



INSTRUCTIONS :   Develop a policy paper based on the scenario presented below.  The product should be a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 pages (excluding cover page, appendices, charts, and references), double spaced, conforming to APA standards.


NOTE: The facts in this scenario are hypothetical.   While the bayou region of Louisiana is a real place with geographic characteristics as described, the population, health system, and other particulars are hypothetical for purposes of this paper.




As a mid-career health policy administrator, you have recently been hired as the Health Policy Coordinator for the Bayou Region of Louisiana.


The Bayou Region of Louisiana (BR) contains some 12,600 square miles with a population of just 265,000 residents.   The institutional health care system contains one regional medical center, 5 small community hospitals, a regional health center, and a contracted behavioral health provider group.   There are physician medical clinics in 14 towns, but most of the BR is remote, composed of small villages, semi-swamp, or reservation land for several indigenous groups.   (You do not manage this health system, but these are the regional facilities in the area).


In the BR, 100% of the population would be considered rural by Federal standards, and only 23 % live in towns of 20,000 or more.   73% of residents come from families with at least one full-time worker.   In the BR, the residents who do not live in towns tend to be more seasonally employed, in part-time work, or self-employed, with a low likelihood of employer provided insurance.   Historically, of the uninsured who are poor, half (50%) of those are from families with full-time workers.   One-fourth of the uninsured are between the ages of 45 and 64, and 26% report being in fair or poor health.


In addition, recent surveys of the behavioral health system, clinics, and tribal health center report significant rates of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and substance abuse / dependence among BR residents.   There is concern that these problems are related to high rates of suicide and domestic violence.


Finally, other reports from social service agencies report that there is a significant population in the BR that is effectively homeless, living seasonally (or sometimes year-round) in campers, tents, or out of automobiles, moving between campgrounds or camping areas in the state park grounds.   This population includes families with children in some cases.


The Director of the Louisiana State Health Department has requested that you prepare a policy briefing discussing the delivery of Health Care Services to the BR residents.   The paper should accomplish the following:

 Discuss the problem of underserved populations and subgroups, including characteristics of those groups and barriers to delivery. Examine the structure of the delivery system and how this helps or hinders health delivery. Discuss the impact of ACA. Make clear recommendations as appropriate for meeting the health delivery challenges of the BR.


Please prepare a well written, well organized, and professionally structured policy paper as requested.

Age of Oil

Age of OilAs you know, our world is heavily dependent on oil. In Chapter 6 of Contemporary Environmental Issues, you have read that there is concern about the possibility of reaching a peak in oil production. Describe at least two alternatives to oil that are currently available and discuss the barriers that keep these alternatives from replacing oil as our primary means of energy? Additionally, utilizing at least two scholarly or reputable resources and your textbook, discuss the role that government plays in ensuring a transition to such alternatives in a post peak-oil world?

Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Utilize at least two scholarly or reputable resources and your textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources in APA format.
