What might cause drought risks to be higher or lower than basic scarcity of water?

Using the example of hurricanes, support the statement (from page 84) that “most hazards fall in between natural and anthropogenic.”
To what degree are your perceptions of risk similar to, or different from, those of the culture around you? Support your answer with some specific examples.
Residents and governments of Europe have been much more critical of genetically modified crops and foods than have residents and governments of the United States. To what degree is this a cultural difference? (Bonus: Supplement your answer using political economy.)
Why do toxic-waste dumps usually represent examples of environmental injustice? (Think: Who chooses to live near a toxic-waste dump?)

5Examine the list of precautions and risks on the label of an over-the-counter insecticide or herbicide (check one out at your local home and garden shop if you do not have any at home). How would this list differ in the absence of governmental regulations? To what degree do you believe this information impacts consumer and user decisions? Why?

6Visit the World Resources Institute “Aqueduct” page, where risks of water stress are mapped in an interactive digital atlas (http://insights.wri.org/aqueduct/atlas). Explore the global maps they provide there. Spcifically compare two different global maps: 1) the map of “Baseline Water Stress” (a map of the degree to which freshwater availability is an ongoing concern) and 2) the map of “Three Year Socioeconomic Drought” (a map of areas where available freshwater supplies are insufficient to support normal water withdrawals over a three-year period). To what degree is the risk of socioeconomic drought a close match to basic underlying water stress and scarcity? Where is the risk of drought less than underlying stress and where is it equal to or greater than basic stress? What might account for the differences you see here? What might cause drought risks to be higher or lower than basic scarcity of water? What might this tell you about environmental risks more generally? To what degree are they determined by basic environmental conditions and to what degree are they influenced by human factors?

What role does fire play in other ecosystems, including grasslands, shrublands, deserts, or rangeland management?

 
The U.S. Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) network is a group of research sites supported by the National Science Foundation. The 26 network sites include diverse ecosystems and shared research results for the purpose of sustainably managing the nation’s biological resources. The network includes universities and the USDA Rangeland Research Unit, the USDA Forest Service Pawnee National Grassland, and the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station.
Select one of the following grasslands or desert ecosystems:

The Jordan Basin LTER
Konza Prairie LTER
Sevilleta LTER
Shortgrass Steppe LTER

How does institutional discrimination operate?

 
Discussion 1
How does institutional discrimination operate? What are examples of institutional discrimination from your workplace or other institutions with which you are involved?
Include specific examples, from our text or life experience.

 Discussion 2
Pay equity is an issue with every group we have discussed over the past weeks. The State of Connecticut outlawed a question in interviews for employment that addresses previous pay. The idea of this ban refers to the fact that previous pay questions lead to less pay across the board for some minority groups, particularly women. If women (or any minority group member) starts at a low salary level because of discrimination in the past, the question about current salary will allow the new employer to pay the person less. 
Discrimination based on previous pay is a situation that is not strictly related to race, gender or ethnicity.In your states, Class, are there employment regulations that address this pay issue?

During the election season of 2016, there was much talk about foreigners taking American jobs. I heard an interview the other night during which an older retired man said that to a reporter. Yet, the facts don’t back that information up. Another recent survey also reported that many White Americans believe they are discriminated against. While I try to respect information like this, I found it so hard to believe. It was a legitimate poll, by the Roger Wood Johnson Foundation. Very few of the people interviewed for this survey said they had actually experienced discrimination (less than 20% of those interviewed). We see this, in social science, as dissonance – when people believe something even without any truth to it.
84% of these same people believed that minorities were discriminated against in America. 
What are your thoughts, Class, about this recent information?

Migrant workers send much of the cash they earn back to their home countries. As you can see by the graph included in the link below, the numbers vary greatly. I thought I’d include a global view (which differs from the view of just the U.S.) for comparison purposes. What are the numbers like across the U.S., Class? Do they compare with the global view? For example, Mexico receives remittances that far outnumber some of the global numbers. Be sure to use legitimate sites when you post the response

I have come across a type of discrimination at work that doesn’t deal with race, gender or ethic background but deals with the type of education one has. Many of my patients refuse to see a nurse practitioner because they believe they don’t do an equal job as a doctor. Nurse practitioners are allowed to do what doctors do which is access the patient, prescribe medication and testing. However, patients discriminate against the type of credentials a person has.

I have lived most of life in New York and in every application that I’ve ever filled out the salary question was always there. There are actually 3 questions they ask. In your previous employment what was your start salary, what was your salary when you left the place of employment and what salary are you looking to make. I presently live in Connecticut and I did not see those questions when I applied. Instead, salary is based on experience and equity.

Institutional discrimination operates by discriminating someone because of their race, ethnic group, or gender. Some examples of institutional discrimination from my workplace would be not including someone to join a group , or go out to eat because their race is different. I personally have not seen a lot of discrimination in my workplace, because I tend to come to work, and do my job, and get along with almost everyone. I have heard stories of people that have experienced it though, or maybe they felt that they were being discriminated because of their gender, sex, or ethnic group.
