Cybercrime

For this week you can start writing your literature review sections.  You will use all of your current sources, and you should write each section and complete the section before moving on to the next. This will make up the largest part of your entire project
Be detailed, concise and clear. Do not use filler words and make sure each paragraph flows into the next. Based on the number of sources, you should be able to present a lot of good material.
Make sure you clearly LABEL each section.
Make sure every statement of fact is cited, no exceptions it has to be done
No opinion or thoughts of your own should appear in these sections; it is pure research, no analysis
You do not have to wait for other areas of the project to be approved; these will be in the same general area as your chosen topic, so it is all very relevant.

Heroin epidemic

MLA STYLE double spaced. Formal tone.
Needs 6 different scholarly sources and they all need to be cited at least 3 times. That’s a total of  18 citations in the text. The citations need attribution. The paper needs a solution at the end of it. It’s considered a solution analysis research paper. With the beginning being exclusively informative about the problem of the heroin epidemic. The middle informing about the people involved and what is being done about the problem currently. Then the end what can be done about it. I want the end to talk about how addicts are treated like criminals and not like sick n people. They need to be sent to rehab instead of to jail. That’s the solution.

Congress and political

Americans often say that they just want Congress to “get things done,” and yet Congress was designed by the Framers to move slowly. And, when it comes to executive orders, which can move policy quickly, people have a tendency to like them when they like the president and dislike them when they don’t like the president. After completing Lesson 12, write an essay that answers all of the following prompt points:
What are executive orders? In what ways are they different than Congressional legislation?
What are the constitutional arguments for the legality of executive orders?
What are the constitutional arguments against the legality of executive orders?
In what ways might the swiftness of executive actions be good, and in what ways might
that same swiftness be problematic?
Last of all and briefly, explain how you feel about the executive orders made by
Presidents Trump and Obama, and why.
Write informative facts first; keep opinion statements to a minimum and towards the end. Be sure to back up all opinion statements with supporting factual evidence.

Concepts of a disaster

Analyze important concepts of the readings: “What is a Disaster” by Perry & Quarantelli (eds.).Provide an introduction that gives the background of the resource that you are reviewing.

– Discuss why is it difficult to define the concept of disaster?  Is it a moving target?

– Analyze and discuss the role of culture and the design of civilization on the way disasters are perceived.

– Define ‘reality’ and ‘construct’.  Analyze and discuss if there is such a thing as reality? Why or why not?

– Assess and discuss the role of ‘respondent’ in academic discussions.  What role does a respondent play, and what value does he/she add?

Green housing gas emission reduction

Low Carbon and Renewable Energy Sustainability in a Town/City

The storyline:

You take a keen interest in community affairs in a city where you live or a city of your choice. In recent years, you have also become increasingly concerned with sustainability issues, and you would like to see local people actively involved in the promotion of greater environmental responsibility.

You are supposed to develop a scheme that could in your view achieve a significant reduction in the greenhouse gas emissions from energy use by residential, industries and transportation in that city. You believe your plan to be realistic, feasible and cost-effective.

You have spoken informally about it to the local district Councillor, who is sympathetic but slightly sceptical. She has asked you to present a report on the scheme for consideration.

Your scheme

    The scheme is concerned with energy consumption at the level of the individual household, i.e. the energy used directly by the residents and industries for heat and power energy.
    The aim of the scheme is to reduce total carbon emissions resulting from residential and industry in the city of your choice to achieve carbon neutrality in the city in the next 10 years.
    To allow a range of options, you have included at least two scenarios from a combination of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies applied in power generation and industrial processes, using renewable energy systems (e.g., solar, wind, geothermal) and end-user energy efficiency improvement (e.g., Micro-CHP systems, renewable combined with conventional, etc.) for reducing energy consumption and obtaining energy from sustainable sources.
    Carbon saving in transportation and using high-efficiency energy storage technologies will improve the completeness of your scenarios.
    In these scenarios please present the implementation timeline, as well as the technical and operational challenges and possible risks.

(The proposal that householders could simply buy their electricity from existing green energy suppliers should not form your scheme!)

    You need to calculate/estimate the total electrical and heat energy required for the town and the current CO2 emission and compare your suggested scenarios to offer the best option in terms of carbon saving and financial advantages.
    For your selected city use the available statistics for the numbers of houses and residential apartments and industries.
    Carbon saving scenarios in city transportation will add an extra advantage to your report.

The following report might be of help: http://www.ukerc.ac.uk/publications/an-investigation-into-future-energy-system-risks-an-industry-perspective.html (Links to an external site.)

Your report

    Your report must include clear descriptions of the area, population and housing that will be affected by the scheme.
    An estimate of the present annual CO2 emissions will be required. These are the emissions produced by the present power plants providing electricity of the town and energy-consuming activities at the household level. You will need to explain your assumptions about the consumption and the present energy supply systems.
    Your report should include a description of each proposed measure in the scheme, an estimate of the likely cost, discussion of the advantages and disadvantages, and your reasons for recommending it. The two types of measure reducing consumption or changing to sustainable sources will probably require rather different approaches in supporting your recommendations. Energy-saving measures are likely to affect individuals or households most directly, whereas changes in centralised energy sources may involve more general issues.
    You may include as many measures as you wish as long as your scheme complies with the description above but bear in mind the 3000-word limit on your report. You may use appendices if necessary. You will need to strike a balance between the number of proposals and the detail you can provide on each one.
    You may wish to refer briefly to options other than those you have proposed, and the reasons for rejecting them.
    Bearing in mind the principal aim of the scheme, an assessment of the reduction in CO2 emissions resulting from each measure is essential. You may wish to consider the need to find a balance between meeting the 100% carbon reduction target (carbon neutrality) and other factors that might limit the extent of the changes.
    Your final report should include a title page, table of content, abstract, introduction and literature review, description of the scope, scenarios and evaluation of presented solutions (e.g., technical, financial, etc.) completing with discussion and concluding remarks, future works and references.

Your readers

The Councillors will have a great deal of local knowledge, but are likely to vary in their technical knowledge, and may not have given much thought to energy systems until now. It would be sensible to regard them as reasonably intelligent people who could be expected to understand the broad technical and financial reasons for your recommendations but will not want to struggle with excessive detail.

Their common concerns are likely to be about matters such as the financial implications, the response of the electorate, effects on the local environment and employment. However, they will also have a wider perspective and will be interested in ideas which can show them as forward-thinking and responsive.

Public Policy

This is the instruction:” For this assignment, you will write an op-ed on any social policy issue you would like (it is strongly suggested, but not required, that this be on the same subject as your final project). The piece should be no longer than 750 words and written for a general audience.”

I haven’t chosen any topic, feel free to choose your topic but please write about US public policy. Please do not write more than 750 words and make citations if there’s any. Thank you very much.

This is the course’s description, “Social policy is about identifying social problems and understanding the causes of those problems. More specifically, social policy analyzes the decisions that government makes, looking at who gets what and why. How do we create a more fair and inclusive society? What is the role of social services in improving well-being? How do we protect the most vulnerable among us?

In the first week, we will think about social policy broadly (aka the welfare state). Over the following four weeks, we will focus specifically on different topics within child and family policychildcare, pre-kindergarten, poverty alleviation for families, and the afterschool hours. We will be aided by Rhode Island experts representing four major actors when it comes to social policy: government bureaucrats, appointees/staff of the executive branch officials, nonprofits, and elected members of the legislative branch. In the final week, we will think about how these same social problems and issues are handled internationally.”
