chinese philosophy

Write 800-1,000 words answering the following questions based on the week’s reading.

1. What is the main philosophical point in the following passage? Explain your reasoning.
Everything has its “that,” everything has its “this.” From the point of view of “that” you cannot see it, but through understanding you can know it. So I say, “that” comes out of “this” and “this” depends on “that” – which is to say that “this” and “that” give birth to each other. But where there is birth there must be death; where there is death there must be birth. Where there is acceptability there must be unacceptability; where there is unacceptability there must be acceptability. Where there is recognition of right there must be recognition of wrong; where there is recognition of wrong there must be recognition of right. Therefore the sage does not proceed in such a way, but illuminates all in the light of Heaven.6 He too recognizes a “this,” but a “this” which is also “that,” a “that” which is also “this.” His “that” has both a right and a wrong in it; his “this” too has both a right and a wrong in it. So, in fact, does he still have a “this” and “that”? Or does he in fact no longer have a “this” and “that”? A state in which “this” and “that” no longer find their opposites is called the hinge of the Way. When the hinge is fitted into the socket, it can respond endlessly. Its right then is a single endlessness and its wrong too is a single endlessness. So, I say, the best thing to use is clarity.

To use an attribute to show that attributes are not attributes is not as good as using a non-attribute to show that attributes are not attributes. To use a horse to show that a horse is not a horse is not as good as using a non-horse to show that a horse is not a horse,7 Heaven and earth are one attribute; the ten thousand things are one horse.

What is acceptable we call acceptable; what is unacceptable we call unacceptable. A road is made by people walking on it; things are so because they are called so. What makes them so? Making them so makes them so. What makes them not so? Making them not so makes them not so. Things all must have that which is so; things all must have that which is acceptable. There is nothing that is not so, nothing that is not acceptable.

For this reason, whether you point to a little stalk or a great pillar, a leper or the beautiful Hsi-shih, things ribald and shady or things grotesque and strange, the Way makes them all into one. Their dividedness is their completeness; their completeness is their impairment. No thing is either complete or impaired, but all are made into one again. Only the man of far reaching vision knows how to make them into one. So he has no use [for categories], but relegates all to the constant. The constant is the useful; the useful is the passable; the passable is the successful; and with success, all is accomplished. He relies upon this alone, relies upon it and does not know he is doing so. This is called the Way.

But to wear out your brain trying to make things into one without realizing that they are all the same – this is called “three in the morning.” What do I mean by “three in the morning”? When the monkey trainer was handing out acorns, he said, “You get three in the morning and four at night.” This made all the monkeys furious. “Well, then,” he said, “you get four in the morning and three at night.” The monkeys were all delighted. There was no change in the reality behind the words, and yet the monkeys responded with joy and anger. Let them, if they want to. So the sage harmonizes with both right and wrong and rests in Heaven the Equalizer. This is called walking two roads.

2. Give an interpretation of this passage – perhaps the most famous in Zhuangzi. What is the philosophical point he is making?
Once Chuang Chou dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Chuang Chou. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Chuang Chou. But he didn’t know if he was Chuang Chou who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Chuang Chou. Between Chuang Chou and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things.

3. What is Schwitzgebel’s argument in section ii. of his paper? What is his conclusion in this section? Do you agree or disagree? Why?

4. What is Schwitzgebel’s interpretation of oneness in Zhuangzi in section v? How does this compare to the view of oneness in the Daodejing? 

5. Schwitzgebel claims that there are always three versions of Zhuangzi – a radical version “death is the same as life,”, a moderate version “it’s better to live a long life but people make too big a fuss about it,” and a skeptical version “maybe death is better than life.” The idea is that Zhuangzi is not coherent in his views. What is a view that you are not coherent about? What are the three versions of your view?

6. Do you think coherence is a good thing for a philosophical view? Why? Do you view the incoherence in Zhuangzi as a strength or a weakness?

7. Do you think you are the philosopher dreaming you are a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming you are a philosopher? Does the answer matter?

here is other resource for the essay. and you have to read section two for it :

Introduction to sociology

Step One

Mass media has a great effect on society, especially on teens and young adults. How has the use of mass media played a significant role in shaping our thoughts
Step Two

Our lives are shaped by several social factors, such as:

The time period in which we live
Our social location and neighborhood
Our social class, gender, and race
Your second task is to list the demographics discussed in the article. Are specific nationalities targeted? What is the average age of those affected? What is that significance of these elements?

Step Three

Your third task is to relay the regions of the world this issue is taking place. Where, geographically, does the article suggest this issue is sooner taking place? If the article discusses the United States and the problem exists everywhere in the US, is there a kind of geographical location associated with the discussion, specifically, sections of a given state, neighborhoods, etc.

HIV/AIDS math modeling paper

I need to have a report written based on the article HIV/AIDS. Please do not plagarize and cite all resources. This is really important. I attached a sample_report which corresponds to krill:whale article to show how the formatting should look. So subtitles should be include like (Introduction, the model, analysis, discussions and conclusions). You do not have to do all models in HIV/AIDS article. You can pick one or two models in chapter 4 or chapter 5 of the article, as long as the report is at most 10 pages. The report has to be 8-9 pages, including a resource page.

Write a short autobiography

I have filled-in some of my basicinformation to help you write this autobiography. Please provide more details as you see fit.

Write a short autobiography (~3 paragraphs total) of your past and present reading & writing experiences, using the questions below to guide you. The purpose of this autobiography is to have you start to reflect on your own learning process and skills and for me to know you better as a person and a student.  I will also evaluate your writing in order to begin to determine how I can help you individually.

(Paragraph 1): Start by telling me a little about the person you are now:
    What is something that you are good at or deeply enjoy doing? 
I am good at setting goals and accomplishing them I enjoy doing this because I feel better as a person and even when I struggle finishing the goal set gives me motivation and purpose.
    What are your educational goals?
I have been a community college student since 2017 and I am planning to graduate 2021 with a Business Administration transfer degree. When I transfer to University, I plan to have concentration in human resource management.

    How would you describe your own learning style? What works for you and what doesnt work for you? (If youre not sure, you can write that too.)
My learning style consist of lots of note taking, thorough reading and following with a good amount of study time. If I am unsure or need clarification, Ill ask the instructor or seek peer support.
Body (Paragraph 2): Take me through your development in reading & writing:
    Describe a positive memory of reading and/or writing from prior courses. (If you cant think of a positive memory, but do have a negative memory that you feel comfortable sharing, please do.)
A negative memory is when I took EWRT 1 last quarter on campus the instructor was absent a lot and dealing with medical issues that three weeks before the course was coming to a close we got a new instructor and we had to take our mid term and final with her with no properness as the original instructor was absent and didnt share the same teaching style.
    Which reading/writing courses have you taken at college?  Did anything change from your earlier experiences? Why do you think it changed? Did you find the reading & writing in your college classes difficult or easy? As you now look ahead to EWRT 2, in what areas of writing would you like support?
Ive taken EWRT 1 and passed this class with an A but I feel I could have benefited more with a different instructor who was able to meet at all scheduled class times and followed a lesson plan. My EWRIT 1 instructor seemed aloof and very forgetful. Reading and writing courses are not difficult. However, are very time consuming and if not planned correctly I could fall behind. 
End (Paragraph 3): Tell me about your experience with online education and leave me with some final thoughts:
    Have you taken any online classes before? If so, what were they?
Ive taken many more but these are the recent.

    How was your experience with fully online education (if you’ve taken them before)?
When I started community college, I had a newborn and took online classes for the first two years. I started attending classes on campus last quarter and I enjoyed it much more than the online format. I was hoping to finish my classes on campus but nowwithCOVIS-19 we are all now taking our classes online. I would say I am grateful to have experience with online classes prior to the COVID-19. 
    Describe any positive experiences and any challenges you faced.
A positive experience I had was last quarter and my first on campus class I was my discouraged on the first day of my environmental studies class because the teacher would explain things very quickly and I wasnt confident I could successfully pass the class. I spoke with the teacher and she reassured me to stay in the class and she will work with me to help me with all my needs. She was an amazing teacher and I passed her class with an A. I really appreciate her support and confidence in me this experience was a positive one because it taught me to believe in myself and that if we are uncomfortable then we are learning.
    From your reading of my syllabus, what do you imagine to be the most challenging thing(s) about successfully completing the requirements? What are your plans to overcome the challenge(s)? Be as specific as you can.
Some of the challenges I face are scheduling the workload a routine. Since I am quarantined with my two-year-old I have to schedule my class study time around their sleep routine and I plan to do this to the best of my ability. 
    Is there anything else you feel I should know about you as we start working together? What do you hope to get out of this class?
I hope to get out of this class: Apply critical thinking skills to writing and complex readings. Demonstrate academic (analytical, argumentative) writing based on reading of complex texts. Demonstrate analysis, comparison, synthesis, and documentation of independent research.

dining philophisor

Use threads to implement three versions of the Dining Philosophers problem. One of the programs must be free from both deadlock and starvation. One of them should be vulnerable to deadlock, and the last should be vulnerable to starvation.
Finally, you will write a report explaining your implementation and addressing the following questions:
