The ancient mound is a very significant place for Native Americans. I think the destruction of this site wouldn’t be a great idea. Since the locals and nearby Native Americans see it as a spiritual place and a historic site it shouldn’t be destroyed. If the mayor is willing to spend 2.6 million on the project he can buy plenty of dirt to use as filling. It doesn’t have to come from that hill. I mean who knows whats in that hill. But in this situation if they decide to dig out the hill a historic site will be lost and a Walmart will be gained. Now if it isn’t destroyed the locals and Native Americans will have a historic site and maybe gain a memorial if archaeologists can find things beneath the surface.

My thoughts are the mound is a religious site for the Native American people. The founding fathers of our country have already taken so much from this culture. They have taken their land, placed them on reservations, and have treated them disrespectfully in so many ways, this would be just another blow.  I do not feel there is any gain to the destruction of this holy place.  Sam’s can get dirt from anywhere. Alabama has an abundance of it and Sam Walton can afford it. Native Americans can’t go down the street and find an ancient monument that easily. At this point, they can’t rule out that sacred burials have not been placed in the mound as well.

I selected the Eiffel Tower which was built in 1889 as the architectural structure that I am attracted to.  When I am viewing this structure, I think of it appearing in romantic settings that are found in many films. Although it was criticized in the beginning for its openness, I find that it is refreshing instead of the steel and concrete buildings that light cannot permeate. The most fascinating thing to me is that is was not constructed on site, instead it was prefabricated and then assembled by 150 workers in 17 months where it now stands. When one sees the Eiffel Tower, your mind automatically thinks of Paris.
Yes, I definitely think crafts have a part in the art world.  To create crafts one must have an artistic mind and convey that through their work.  As example, Miriam Schapiro’s, Wonderland, expresses beauty while still being a utilitarian piece of fabric as possibly a quilt.  She was able to use it as an outlet for her artistic expression.  It actually hangs in the Smithsonian Art Institute today.

I am attracted most to Moshe Safdie’s work, “Habitat.” The design of these houses I think is one of the neatest things. I have always thought these designs were neat and I am glad to see someone that is expressing it. Another reason that this is my favorite architectural work is how unique and close together the houses are. They were stacked on another so that the roof of one unit would provide a private deck for another.
I most definitely think crafts have a place in this world. Although crafts are an amazing kind of art, it also provides a fun way to create art. Crafts are many people’s favorite hobbies. It allows people to express there art in their own way without having to be the best at drawing. Crafts are made by several artists, but they can also be made by anybody that has the interest.

Evaluate ethical dilemmas in social work using an ethical decision-making framework

Social work is a values-based profession; as such, social workers are expected to adhere to professional ethical standards, which include a specific commitment to the “vulnerable and oppressed.” 
Ethics represent an integral part of competent social work practice, and entering this profession means that you agree to uphold and abide by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics. The NASW Code of Ethics is founded upon six core values from which the ethical standards are framed. The code outlines the ethical responsibilities social workers apply to 1) clients, 2) colleagues, 3) in practice settings, 4) as professionals, 5) to the social work profession, and 6) to the broader society. 
This week, you examine the NASW Code of Ethics and apply an ethical decision-making framework to a specific dilemma.
Learning Objectives
Students will:

Evaluate ethical dilemmas in social work using an ethical decision-making framework
Analyze influence of professional social work standards on ethical decision making
Apply social work concepts to social work practice scenarios

Discussion: Resolving Ethical Dilemmas
If there is a right and wrong answer, there is no ethical dilemma. An ethical dilemma occurs when one or more competing ethical principles must be considered and weighed against each other. 
Social workers serve individuals, families, and communities who experience complex problems for which there are rarely simple solutions, or right or wrong answers. As such, social workers use the NASW Code of Ethics to identify the various ethical principles and standards that will guide ethical decision making. 
In this Discussion, you apply social work ethics as you analyze an ethical dilemma. 
To prepare: Consider the ethical decision-making framework outlined in this week’s resources by Reamer (2002). Select one of the following options and engage in the first few steps of the ethical decision-making process, including consultation with colleagues through your response posts.
Option 1
As technology advances, so do the ways that social workers can connect with clients. Is it acceptable to look at a client’s activities on social media or seek information through an Internet search? Should a social worker allow clients to contact them by text or e-mail? How does a social worker’s personal social media presence influence the worker/client relationship? 
Option 2
Consider the presence of dual relationships in social work practice. What are examples of nonharmful and harmful dual relationships between clients and workers? How do social workers determine if dual relationships are harmful to a client?
Option 3
Your Instructor will post a social work ethical dilemma related to a current event.
By Day 3
Post:

Describe a specific ethical dilemma based on one of the options above. 
Describe the ethical issues in the option chosen.

Identify specific values or ethical standards that apply.

Identify who is likely to be affected by the ethical dilemma.
Describe potential courses of action.
Examine reasons in favor of or opposed to the course of action.

Basic components of a Proposal Letter

I would like to write a grant request letter. I have the assignment files uploaded and the the basic components of writing a grant request and whom it’s directed for. The hypothetical project we want to fund is a neighborhood sculpture garden. I need a minimum of one page (single space) in 10 hours please. 

Basic components of a Proposal Letter:

Private foundation proposals differ greatly from most federal proposals. While foundations often outline the general format that they prefer, there is more latitude regarding the structure of the narrative. Always frame your proposal to align as closely as possible to the funders programs’ stated mission, without going so far that you are compromising your research interests. 
Further, if there is a published  list of judges/reviewers available, as is usually the case for scientific applications, try to compose your proposal so that it piques the interest of one or more of the judges’ expertise.
1.  Abstract/Summary

The abstract is the most important component of the proposal. Spend time developing the best possible title. If the length is not mandated, it should be no longer than one half to one page maximum. 
Use bolded subheadings. Include highlights in the topic sentence in each section of the proposal. 
What will be done, by whom, how, over what period of time? What is the problem/need? Who will the outcomes benefit? 

2. Statement of Need

What is the issue that you are addressing and why does it matter?
Why is what you propose necessary? What is the void in Knowledge? 
Who benefits? Indicate the public good, not just the effect on campus. 
Why hasn’t this issue been addressed sufficiently in the past? Who else is working in this field, what have they done, and why isn’t that enough? Demonstrate your knowledge of the field.
Provide convincing evidence that what you are proposing does not duplicate other work. Replication of someone else’s work in a new environment or larger scale may be fundable.

3. Project Activity, Methodology and Outcomes

Why did you choose to address the issue in the manner that you have? Are there other approaches? If so, why aren’t they appropriate to the situation?
What are the specific activities involved? Who will do them? 
Present a timeline of activities. Tables and charts work best here. They crystallize data, break up pages of narrative, and convey extensive information well in a limited space.
What specific outcomes will be achieved? What will change? 
Why are you/your organization the best one to do what you propose to do? Is it an extension of successful, innovative work or a pilot project you already completed?

4. Evaluation

Essential piece that should be both quantitative and qualitative, if feasible. 
Outline clearly the methodology that you will use to assess the projects success.

5. Dissemination

Dissemination should be linked to your project goals and objectives. If you are trying to affect policy, your dissemination plan should target policy-makers, media, and affected populations.
Describe your communication strategy.
Be creative. Sending an article to a professional journal is only one of many options. Consider submitting op-ed pieces to newspapers and articles to more popular periodicals; work with University Relations to obtain newspaper coverage and interviews on local radio stations; engage in conference presentations, community outreach activities, presentations to policy-makers and community groups, such as the Chamber of Commerce; launch a web site or blog; convene work groups of your peers; create briefing papers, press releases, videos; and, list yourself on speakers bureaus.

6. Budget and Continuation Funding

Show your budget in table form and use a budget narrative to explain each item.
Only Include other sources of funding if the funder mandates it’s inclusion. UMass policy does not allow including in-kind or outside contributions unless it is required, as it adds administrative burden and costs.
Indicate how the project will be funded or be sustainable after the grant funds have run out.
The Office of Grants and Contract Administration (OGCA) makes available all university policies covering all legal, fiscal, human resources and intellectual property issues.
