What role did your family and friends play in helping you develop

Watch Sam Killerman’s TED Talk which breaks down the differences between sex, gender, and sexuality. Using the concepts discussed in this video, along with the material you read this week in the text book, write a two to three page reflection addressing the following components:

  • What is the difference between sex, gender, and sexuality?
  • Apply these three concepts to your own life.
  • How did you develop these three identities? What role did your family and friends play in helping you develop these identities?
  • How has your sex, gender, and/or sexuality impacted your life?

For this journal assignment you should integrate concepts from the week’s resources you reviewed, while also providing examples from your personal experiences that help support your ideas. Journal assignments provide you the opportunity to focus on exploring your own ideas rather than simply repeating the speaker’s ideas. You will be graded on whether you gave evidence that you watched the whole video carefully and that you thought about the material for yourself.

For this journal assignment you should integrate concepts from the week’s resources you reviewed, while also providing examples from your personal experiences that help support your ideas.

How do cultural factors influence our perception of sensory stimuli?

Reflect on the role of illusions in studying sensation and perception. Why do illusions occur, and what do they reveal about the workings of our sensory and perceptual systems? How can illusions help us understand the limitations and biases of our perceptions?


How do cultural factors influence our perception of sensory stimuli? Give examples of how cultural norms and values can shape our interpretation of sensory information.


To complete the discussion post for full credit, follow the instructions below: 

A minimum of one complete paragraph for your answer.

Note: a paragraph is a writing structure that requires a minimum of five complete sentences.

  1. Use APA 7th Citations and Formatting Examples
  2. The Discussion also requires a Comment or Reply to a classmate’s Discussion.

This Comment or Reply requires a minimum of three complete sentences.

  1. It is not only about the number of sentences, but the valid knowledge of the topic represented throughout the paragraph (Discussion) and/or the three sentences (Comment or Reply). “university student’s sentences” not “Mary is a girl or Tom is a boy” kind of sentences…

These three sentences should represent a valid knowledge of the other student’s Discussion.

  1. Note: Sentences just expressing your opinion and/or perception of your classmate’s Discussion, and/or complimenting your classmate do not count for points, i.e., “I love what you wrote about…”; “You did a great job…”; “I agree with you”…

Not complying with all the above requirements will decrease the score for the Discussion.

List the lobes of the brain and their function.

1. Name 3 nerves and their function.

2. List the lobes of the brain and their function.

Week 2 Chat Hour Playlist

Ask questions, reply, and provide feedback for the week prior to help us all grow a class. The standards for this section are as follows:

Respect others’ rights to hold opinions and beliefs that differ from your own. Challenge or criticize the idea, not the person.

Listen carefully to what others are saying even when you disagree with what is being said. Comments that you make (asking for clarification, sharing critiques, expanding on a point, etc.) should reflect that you have paid attention to the speaker’s comments.

Be courteous. Don’t interrupt or engage in private conversations while others are speaking.

Support your statements. Use evidence and provide a rationale for your points

Allow everyone the chance to talk. If you have much to say, try to hold back a bit; if you are hesitant to speak, look for opportunities to contribute to the discussion.

If you are offended by something or think someone else might be, speak up and don’t leave it for someone else to have to respond to it.

Does the organism utilize gills or lungs?

Anatomy Section

What does the organism look like? Describe the body shape, colors and size, length etc. Note any

unique features your species may have (fur, feathers, tail, etc.).

Physiology Section

Pick two systems (circulatory, respiratory, etc.) and tell how each works. For example, how many

chambers are there to the heart? What is the direction of blood flow. Does the organism utilize gills or

lungs? What are the vital functions and processes that keep the species alive?

Reproduction Section

When does the species reproduce (time of year)? Is fertilization an internal or external process? Are

there mating rituals, color changes, etc? How long is the gestational (developmental) period? How

many offspring are usually in the litter? How much care do the young require?

Role in the Ecosystem Section

Is it a predator or prey, or both? If a predator, tell what it eats. If prey, what eats it?

Evolution of Species Section

From what did your species arise and when? What modifications in form have occurred

(if any) since its evolution? (If you cannot find this information refer to Table 25-1

in the text)

Major threats to aquatic biomes

This week we will highlight some major threats to aquatic biomes. It is safe to say that one of the most rapidly growing threats to marine life (and to our life, for that matter) is plastic pollution. Plastic pollution is as concerning as it is recent; much more recent than climate change. Plastic only started to become popular in the 1960’s, meaning it has only been around for roughly 3 human generations. And yet, here we are facing the equivalent of dumping a plastic-filled garbage truck in our oceans every minute of every hour for an entire year! Whoa. The pollution has gotten so out of control that we end up finding articles such as thisLinks to an external site. Becoming more and more common in our daily news.

From an evolutionary perspective, this is such a recent issue that none of the 700+ species impacted by plastic pollution have had any time to distinguish it from food.

We need to get rid of this problem faster than its accumulation rate. But how? How do we deal with plastic pollution? I’d love to hear from you on that. Anything from personal “tips and tricks” on product replacement/reduction, to volunteering at your local beach, to global policy changes. Anything goes in our effort to directly and positively impact our marine world.

cooking or manufacture of the food

1. Write a detailed description of what you ate at your last meal that had at least one thing that had to be cooked. Categorize each food carbohydrate, lipids, protein and nucleic acids.  Remember that most foods have more than one of the biomolecules  Be detailed and must be original writing.  You can share a recipe if you would like.
2. Describe how water and pH could affect the food or drink in this meal, such as in the cooking process, or in the taste, or in the texture, or in preserving the food.
3. What would happen if these conditions were changed during cooking or manufacture of the food – if the pH was much higher or much lower, or the water was too much or too little?
4. Choose one nutrient in food and discuss its importance. It could be protein, lipids, carbohydrates, antioxidants, a vitamin, a mineral, or water.

Before you begin namedropping this polysyllabic term to impress others, begin by explaining its dynamics and why understanding it is critical to grasping cardiopulmonary physiology

The Alabama Physical Fitness Assessment

What is the conclusion of the following argument? Ordinary mountain sickness, a common condition among mountain climbers, and one from which most people can recover, is caused by the characteristic shortage of oxygen in the atmosphere at high altitudes. Cerebral edema, a rarer disruption of blood circulation in the brain that quickly becomes life-threatening if not correctly treated from its onset, can also be caused by a shortage of oxygen. Since the symptoms of cerebral edema resemble those of ordinary mountain sickness, cerebral edema can be especially hazardous at high altitudes.

When are additional transmission-based precautions required? Select one answer When a person with HIV is admitted to a residential care home When standard precautions cannot be performed When standard precautions alone are not sufficient to prevent the transmission of disease or germs When a person is admitted to a residential care home with a temperature
