Question 1597 Race and Ethnicity
With nearly seven billion people on the planet, the world offers a fascinating array of human characteristics. Race refers to the inherited physical characteristics that distinguish one group from another. These distinguishing characteristics include a variety of complexions, colors, and shapes.
Although there have been significant strides in the understanding of race and racial equality, two myths of race are still common. One is the perception that some races are superior to others; the other is that “pure” races exist. The idea of race remains a very real and powerful force throughout the world, shaping basic relationships between people in the United States and elsewhere. Select one set of questions to respond to: Racial, Ethnic, and Minority Groups
1a)Why do you think the term “minority” has persisted when the word “subordinate” is more descriptive?
1b)How do you describe your ethnicity? Do you include your family’s country of origin? Do you consider yourself multiethnic? How does your ethnicity compare to that of the people you spend most of your time with? Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination
2a) How does racial steering contribute to institutionalized racism?
2b)Give an example of stereotyping that you see in everyday life. Explain what would need to happen for this to be eliminated. Theories of Race and Ethnicity 3a)Give three examples of white privilege. Do you know people who have experienced this? From what perspective?
3b)What is the worst example of culture of prejudice you can think of? What are your reasons for thinking it is the worst? Intergroup Relationships
4a)Do you believe immigration laws should foster an approach of pluralism, assimilation, or amalgamation? Which perspective do you think is most supported by current U.S. immigration policies?
4b)Which intergroup relation do you think is the most beneficial to the subordinate group? To society as a whole? Why? Race and Ethnicity in the United States
5a)In your opinion, which group had the easiest time coming to this country? Which group had the hardest time? Why?
5b)Which group has made the most socioeconomic gains? Why do you think that group has had more success than others?

Question 1599 Sociology in the news
Due Today at 10pm * I need a copy of the source so a online article needs to be used and pasted within the paper *
She is using Turnitin to check for Plagiarism ——————————— Sociology In The News Paper Format (example) Rachel A. Koons 1 Sociology In The News Paper #1 October 4, 2017 http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/03/health/abortion-access-disparities-study/index.html
Title of Article Review Begin paper here…. ————————- Sociology In The News Essays (SITN’s) Each student will
write two Sociology in the News (SITN) essays. Each essay is to be turned in by the due dates listed on your Weekly Schedule. Please read the following information/instructions before writing and submitting your SITN essays. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions regarding this writing assignment.
**What are Sociology in the News Essays?** Most of what you’ll find in the news headlines deal with potentially Sociological topics—the same topics you discuss with friends at the coffee shop, with your family around the dinner table, or in the breakroom at work. What sets Sociology apart from most breakroom conversations is not the topics themselves, but the perspective that Sociologists bring to them….. The purpose of these essays is to develop the ability to look at everyday events and debates with a Sociological eye—that is, to unpack the taken-for-granted ways of thinking about the world that usually frame our discussions about current events, and look for ways to understand them more deeply as Sociological issues. **You will write two SITN essays this semester. For each one:
1) Choose a recent article from a regional or national news source that deals with a topic that interests you, or that you think might interest a sociologist. (Good sources include The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Missoulian, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, U.S. News & World Report, ABC News, Fox News, Christian Science Monitor, BBC.com, CNN.com, NPR.com, any Sociological current journal, and etc.) **The article should be no more than a few years old if possible…
2) Photocopy, clip, copy and paste, or print your article, and turn it in with your essay. Or you may provide the web link at the bottom of your paper.
3) In 2-4 pages, discuss the sociological ramifications of your article. In so
doing, you will want to set your paper up using the following 3 steps: step 1: in your own words, introduce your article and summarize its major points (1-2 paragraphs). step 2: describe, in detail, how the article relates to either a theory, concept or sociological idea from your textbook (1-2 paragraphs). step 3: discuss at least two questions sociologists might ask about the article’s content, and state briefly how they might go about answering them. You will also need to include your own personal thoughts and opinions regarding the content of your article (1-2 paragraphs).
*Papers should be formatted using Times New Roman, 12-point font with 1-inch margins. Please see next page for paper setup. *
These papers will be graded as follows: full points: An outstanding, ground-breaking, perfectly polished and beautifully written essay that makes interesting and insightful points. (Essentially, an A or A-.) Partial points: A good essay (about a B+-B-). It is perhaps well-written, certainly free of spelling and stylistic
errors, but not especially original. Low points: A paper that was turned in on time, but is underdeveloped, riddled with errors, or both. (About a C.) You can figure out what happens below this….
Question 1600 Sociology

The narrator of “Intersex” asserts that gender differences in terms of aggressive versus passive behavior is rooted in biology then asserts that gender is “almost entirely” learned behaviors; while the casual viewer may miss this ideological contradiction, how could we, as social scientists, explain why the narrator confuses ideologies on gender and sex using what we have learned from Fausto-Sterling? Note the doctor in “Interex” who is being interviewed throughout the documentary, how do his comments on gender and sexual identities of the intersexed, that he vaguely says is “backed by studies,” seem absurd from the perspective of Fausto-Sterling?

DRIVEN ORGANIZATION. It is a local chapter of a national organization. We depend on volunteers for numerous activities: fund-raising, clerical tasks, service delivery, etc. One particular valuable volunteer had great computer skills and was creating a database for the local chapter. Unbeknown to the director
or the staff, this person had used the computer and the organization’s logo and letterhead to solicit gifts, donations, event passes, and who knows what else from all over the area for her own use. One company representative called to check out a solicitation from this person because it was different from previous organization contacts and it raised suspicions. POST YOUR ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS. Describe the Ethical Dilemma How might you use “ethical reasoning” in this situation? What action would you take, as an agency administrator, if you became aware of this situation? Identify which of the six (6) ethical principles that underlie codes or standards would apply to this situation

Question 1618 A Bloody Sunday in Brentwood
Understanding School Violence -1 PAGE ONLY – School is a place of growth before a person steps into the uncertainties of adulthood. However, for a few individuals school is a stressful, negative environment, which may result in them becoming violent. In terms of student victimization, the United States does not have the highest rate of violence compared with other nations. Although US schools are occasionally sites of horrific attacks, on a day-to-day basis, US public schools appear about as safe (or unsafe) as those in other nations. The impact of widespread coverage of these violent incidents is difficult to measure, but surveys of student and teacher concerns show a pervasive pattern of fear of
violence. School violence has been a topic of national concern throughout the past decade as the public has repeatedly witnessed horrifying shooting incidents in US public schools.
When studying violence in schools, it is important to consider both offenders and victims. Many studies have found a positive relationship between physical abuse and suicide. In light of these factors, it is important for you to understand the impact of violence in schools on victims, their families, and the public. Task: Use the textbook readings, the Argosy University online library, and any other outside sources to research school shootings and select a school-shooting incident. Submission Details: By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 250 wordS. Provide a summary of the school-shooting incident you selected. Describe any risk factors and warning signs that were present in the case prior to the violent act. Identify the security measures that, had they been implemented prior to the tragedy, might have either prevented or lessened the casualties. Give your reasoning.
A Bloody Sunday in Brentwood – 3 PAGES ONLY- Here’s What Happened . . . The chief of police in Centervale is becoming more concerned with victims’ rights. He worries that law enforcement officers do not have enough real-world opportunities to review cases of victimology. As practice, you and your fellow officers have been asked to evaluate the Nicole Simpson case from the time she first reported intimate violence by O. J. Simpson to the time of her death. Assess from a victimology standpoint and under the assumption that O. J. Simpson was the perpetrator of the murder. Here’s What You Need to Do . . . Using APA-formatted in-text citations and external sources that are referred to on a corresponding reference page, prepare a report on the Simpson case, evaluate what resources could have been used to prevent the murder, and then suggest improvements. Your report should include the following: In the recent decades, we have seen stalking laws, as well as intimate partner-violence laws, undergo vast improvements due to more awareness and education for those who make, enforce, and interpret laws.
Make a flowchart that identifies these critical stages in the laws for stalking and intimate violence. Research the laws, policies and procedures, and operational techniques pertaining to victims’ rights and victim protection. Compare and contrast your research with the processes found in the Simpson case. What can you recommend to law enforcement officers to prevent similar results in future cases? Analyze and interpret statistical data using basic research methods. Illustrate any correlations between stalking, intimate violence, and homicide. How can you compare your findings with the facts of the Simpson case? Apply the victimology or criminology theory, or theories that best fits this case. Express your reasoning for your comparison of comparison of the victimology v. criminological theory. Research lethality or danger assessments used by law enforcement agencies and victim advocacy centers. Describe what the assessments are used for. What facts can you select to show the lethality signs that were present before Nicole’s murder? Create your own lethality or
danger assessment containing at least five questions that you feel would be the most relevant questions to ask a victim in a dangerous intimate relationship in order to assist in determining the threat level of the partner. Describe your reasoning in your concluding remarks.
