As humans make new scientific discoveries, they are able to develop additional technologies. For example, historically people used the bark and leaves from the willow tree to treat fevers and pains. This was a traditional medicine that people shared with one another via word of mouth. As technology advanced, the materials from the willow tree could be analyzed in a lab and the components could be studied to see which natural chemicals were responsible for reducing the fevers and pain. Research showed that the willow tree contained a form of salicylic acid that gave it its’ healing powers. This scientific research led to the development of the aspirin we use today which is now mass produced (and that you have probably taken at some point in your lifetime).
You depend on many technologies throughout your day that make your modern life possible. In this assignment you will look at some of these technologies and the scientific discoveries that made them possible. You will evaluate both the negative and positive impacts of these discoveries. You will also broaden your scope to look at how different cultures with different levels of access to technology approach the same problem – health care.
Part I Science in your personal and professional life
Think about your day from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep.
List four technologies that you rely on and would find it difficult to get through your day or night without. Discuss any negative impacts these technologies have on your life, society, and the environment.
Think about your day from the time you wake up to when you go to sleep. Describe the one scientific discovery that you think is the most important for making modern life possible.
List as many negative and positive impacts you can think of that this scientific discovery and the technologies that it allowed to be developed may have. Evaluate and discuss if the positives outweigh the negatives overall, or whether the negatives outweigh the positives.
Part II Science and technology in a multicultural world
Many research programs around the world focus on the discovery of cures to ailments from cancer to mental illness. Modern society invests a great deal of money, and time while pushing the boundaries of modern technology to develop new cures and improve existing treatments.
Review the Unit 9 Assignment Resources.
Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to the westernized high-tech research approach to medical treatment.
Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to using traditional medicine as an approach to medical treatment.
Are there benefits to having multicultural approaches to medical treatment? Explain your answer.
Could these two cultural approaches both be improved by drawing upon the other? Why or why not?
Discuss any challenges there may be in combining these two different cultural approaches to treatment that have a very different level of reliance on scientific research and technology.

Intelligence Collection and Processing and Relation to the State
Craft a 1-page memo. Make sure to include the following points in the memo:
Explain how legal barriers may or may not prohibit information sharing at the different levels of government.
Include decision-making products as they relate to your chosen Key Assignment topic.
Review the Key Assignment selected strategy and determine what (if any) barriers there may be to information sharing.
Determine whether or not any barriers to information sharing are identified.
Determine whether or not an implementation plan addresses those identified barriers.
Determine how the strategy that you have selected fits into the overall information-sharing global structure.
Review your selected strategy, conduct an assessment of the primary policies within the strategy (or the goals and objectives), and provide a detailed assessment of the pros and cons of each. Consider the intelligence cycle and the processing of information as well as interagency coordination and information sharing.
Complete a PowerPoint presentation of 8–10 slides, and include the following:
Assess the primary policies of the selected Key Assignment strategy.
Assess the pros and cons of each policy, taking into consideration the intelligence cycle and interagency coordination.
Provide any recommendations for improvements to the overarching goals and objectives or primary polices of the strategy.
Provide recommendations for implementation.
Submit a 1–2 page executive summary of your findings.
Include a cover slide and a reference slide.
Please submit a draft of your Key Assignment, drawing from your work in previous weeks and 2-3 new pages.
Provide a written analysis of specific intelligence and information-sharing strategy. Your draft should examine the strategy of an agency, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), or any national strategy that involves intelligence and information sharing, such as intelligence-led policing. Your draft should be 15–20 pages in length and should provide in-depth analysis to determine whether or not the current strategy meets the intelligence and information sharing needs for homeland security (HLS), and make recommendations for improvement.
The analysis will examine factors such as, but not limited to the following:
A brief description of the strategy to include the agency responsible for the strategy and the history and evolution of the document
An analysis of the agency’s past and current structure and capabilities
Identification of information-sharing barriers and an explanation of how and why they are classified as barriers
A description of the specific policies within the strategy
Identification of legal entities and legal barriers
A description of whether or not there are ethical and privacy considerations
The intelligence cycle

Social Science Question
Political Science Assignment Help This assessment is part of the capstone project, write each question and then write the answer, APA style
Capstone statement: The more ACEs an individual has experienced, the higher their risk of lasting health impacts. Does the physician understand that patients with higher ACEs score struggle?
Macro-Level Systems Perspective (3-5 pages) (SLO 2-4)
Using the Systems Assessment Review of Macro Forces and Interventions
What services currently exist in the community to address the identified need?
Are there currently any policies or legislation that are related to the needs of the target population?
Has a community needs assessment or agency needs assessment been conducted to identify needs? If not, what is the evidence that need exists?
What larger systems issues influence the well-being of this client population or community? This could include unemployment, gentrification/lack of affordable housing, economy, lack of educational resources, etc.
Students should make a case for why this is a concern and discuss the human rights, environmental justice, or social justice, or economic justice implications.
Systems Assessment How has the target group been treated by larger systems/issues of oppression and discrimination?
What impact has current and historical policies and practices had on the target population?
Take a few moments to think about one of the clients with whom you have interacted in the last week. Using Figure 1, Bronfrennbrener’s Ecological Systems Theory:
Identify two to three examples for each system that may impact that client.
Identify one or two systems that are currently having the greatest impact on the client, and explain why.

Pick and address the intervention and Explanation of which challenge(s) the intervention addresses
Exercise on identifying dispersion in a variable
Below are the raw frequencies for two ordinal variables: a measure of individuals’ levels of social trust
(part A), and a measure of opinions about a requirement that would regulate automobile manufacturers
(part B). The social trust variable, which is based on the extent to which individuals think that people can
be trusted, has four values: low, medium-low, medium-high, and high trust. The automobile
manufacturers variable is based on how strongly respondents favor or oppose requiring car manufacturers
to make cars and trucks that use less gasoline. This variable is coded by five values: strongly favor
requirement, favor, neither favor nor oppose, oppose, or strongly oppose such a requirement.
For each variable: (i) Construct a frequency distribution, including frequencies, percentages, and
cumulative percentages. (ii) Sketch a bar chart. (iii) Identify the mode. (iv) Identify the median. (v) State
whether the variable has high dispersion or low dispersion. (vi) Explain how you know.
1. Raw frequencies for the social trust variable: low trust, 437; medium-low, 334; medium-high,
264; high trust, 273.
2. Raw frequencies for the car manufacturer variable: strongly favor requirement, 645; favor, 197;
neither favor nor oppose, 52; oppose, 14; strongly oppose, 9.
