How are attitudes and approaches to gender represented differently in diverse geographic regions within the United States (e.g. North-South; East Coast-Western territories)?

Essay needed for WS2010 Introduction to Women’s Studies

Purpose: The purpose of a cultural analysis essay (based on historical artifacts) is to demonstrate in writing your ability to think critically about specific historical evidence (primary sources), usually written artifacts such as literature, letters and other first person accounts, and legal/political documents or visual artifacts such as art, advertisements and other media.
Your writing should demonstrate your ability to understand and appreciate the selected historical artifacts in context and to apply major concepts and interpretive approaches from Women’s Studies to those artifacts.  The best essays will address the social and cultural dynamics that influenced or shaped the creation of the specific artifact(s).
A cultural analysis essay is not a book report; your writing should aim to provide analytical and interpretive thought that is not immediately evident in the historical artifacts themselves.
Instructions: Select one to four specific historical artifacts from our course textbook* and develop a focused cultural analysis based on one of the following five topics:
1. How does the intersection of gender and economic or social class inform the construction or creation of visual or written artifacts from a specific historical period?
2. How does the intersection of gender and ethnicity, “race,” or national origin inform the construction or creation of visual or written artifacts from a specific historical period?
3. How are attitudes and approaches to gender expressed differently across the generations? (Please select artifacts that are at least 50 years apart.)
4. How are attitudes and approaches to gender represented differently in diverse geographic regions within the United States (e.g. North-South; East Coast-Western territories)?
5. How have specific male historical figures contributed to and/or productively informed women’s rights movements in the United States and what does this reveal about the construction of gender in our culture?
*The blue framed pages at the end of each chapter offer the best starting point for identifying specific historical artifacts, although students may also select material from within the chapters so long as that material is a specific artifact and not general textbook passages. Specific artifacts most likely are: paintings, photographs, advertisements, letters, first person accounts, newspaper columns, poems, legal briefs, or political documents.
Expectations: Cultural Analysis Essays should be composed to college-level standards of grammar and organization; your essay should be well developed with supporting evidence from both the artifact(s) at the focus of your analysis and relevant scholarly sources.
Strong written analysis includes the following:
· A specific introduction that provides relevant, contextual background of the focus artifact or artifacts,
· A clear statement of the overall interpretation to be offered in the essay, such as through a purpose statement or thesis,
· A consistent interpretive focus on the features of the primary sources, the artifacts themselves: What do they express? What does this expression mean? How, specifically, is this expression conveyed? Why might the original author/creator have chosen to produce this specific artifact in this way (and for whom)?
· An awareness of both the intentional, obvious features of the artifacts and the unconscious, unintentional or culturally influenced aspects of the artifacts, such a biases or other historically-informed values and beliefs,
· A concluding analysis that suggests the larger significance of the artifact(s) for its originating context as well as our own time, and
· Precisely documented quotations or evidence from the primary sources (the artifacts) as well as secondary sources (research) via MLA format; at least two (but no more than five in an essay of this length) relevant secondary sources should be referenced.
Suggested length: 4-6 pages

Explain the scientific and technical concepts related to nuclear medicine.

 Nuclear medicine is a specialized branch of modern medicine that exploits the process of radioactivity for imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. Many imaging techniques inject small amounts of radioactive material into the body, which are then tracked by a sensing device specific to the type of radiation emitted from that material. Radiation has also been used to destroy diseased tissue, typically beyond the reach of standard surgical techniques.
Using the readings for this module, the online library resources, and the Internet, write a paper on nuclear medicine. Address the following:

Explain the scientific and technical concepts related to nuclear medicine. Consider the following questions when you construct your response:

What type of radiation is typically exploited in most nuclear medicine procedures?
How are patients prepared for nuclear medicine procedures?
What are the advantages and limitations of nuclear medicine?
What ailments are typically diagnosed and treated via nuclear medicine procedures?

Evaluate a minimum of three applications of nuclear medicine relating to any of the following topics:

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans
Gallium scans
Indium white blood cell scans
Iobenguane scans (MIBG)
Octreotide scans
Hybrid scanning techniques employing X-ray computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Nuclear medicine therapy using radiopharmaceuticals

Support your statements with examples. Provide a minimum of three scholarly references.
Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. 

What elements are involved in nuclear power production?

 The term nuclear power refers to the production of electrical energy via controlled nuclear reactions. These reactions generate heat that, in turn, creates steam that runs the generators to produce electricity. Approximately 1/8th of the electricity produced in the world is derived from nuclear power. In this assignment, you will analyze the use of nuclear power as an energy resource.
Respond to the following:

Discuss the scientific and technical concepts related to the use of nuclear power as an energy resource. Address the following in your response:

How is energy released in a nuclear reaction?
How are nuclear reactions controlled?
What elements are involved in nuclear power production?
What nuclear forces are involved?

Explain the advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy, detailing issues related to production, delivery, cost, radiation, air quality, and waste.
Identify a country whose electricity production infrastructure relies heavily on nuclear power. Compare and contrast the use of nuclear power in the United States with the use of nuclear power in this country. Provide examples of the use of nuclear power in Southern California.
Consider the three major nuclear accidents in the history of the industry: 3-Mile Island (USA), Chernobyl (Ukraine), and Fukushima Dai-Ichi (Japan). What lessons have been learned from these nuclear accidents that can be or have been used to make nuclear power safer?

Write your initial response in 2–3 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
