The benefits that tourism brings to your location.

Part B: Situation Analysis & Future Plans

Using the outline, research, and introduction you prepared for Part A, prepare a report for your minister that examines the following. You can use the headings provided below as an organization guideline for formatting your paper.

Introduction and Overview of Tourism Include content from Part A.

The Impact of Tourism

•       The benefits that tourism brings to your location.

•       The barriers to tourism acceptance at your location.

•       The impact of tourism on your location’s culture.

Tourism Management

Natural resources

1.     Infrastructure

2.     Suprastructure

3.     Transportation system

4.     Hospitality of the host

•       Note: If you have selected a location that you have personal experience with, your own experiences are a great starting point for research, but this report should be based on research and evidence. For example, don’t just say that the transportation systems seemed sufficient from when you were there. Do some research and reference your sources to support your statements.

•       Where you believe your location fits on the life cycle of a destination; justify or explain why you chose a particular stage in the life cycle.

Tourism Planning and Marketing

•       An analysis of the tourism planning process (i.e. has your location gone through a tourism planning process)? If so, what steps were followed? What key dimensions were incorporated in planning (i.e. environmental, social, and economic)? If no planning has taken place, discuss how this has impacted this tourism destination.

 Organize bones three different ways.

Step 1 Organize bones three different ways.

Think about the organization of the bones in the human body and outline three different ways in which the skeletal system is organized. Use a visual diagram or chart to present your three organizational schemes. Be detailed and very clear in the presentation of your ideas.

Step 2 Create learning tools for ten bones.

Select ten bones of the body. Create a learning tool or strategy for each bone that would help you or another student to learn the name and location of each bone.

Step 3 Write a paragraph.

Write a brief paragraph that explains how the skeletal system is involved in homeostasis of the entire body. Provide one example of what can happen to homeostasis when a component of the skeletal system malfunctions.

Evaluate the results of your self-efficacy self-assessment.

Question 1: Evaluate the results of your self-efficacy self-assessment. How do your results relate to your interpersonal strengths and weaknesses you have observed in yourself previously?

Question 2: Which elements of Chapter 5 Taking Responsibility for Our Feelings, did you find most useful in relation to caring self-management? Please cite the specific passages and give examples of how you might use this information in everyday life.

Question 3: Develop a plan to implement one of the practices for the remainder of the course. You will repeat your self-assessments at the end, and write an essay on your experience in the last lesson. Share your plan here.

What moral guidelines for using that kind of healthcare technology

Instructions Develop, in detail,  a situation in which a health care worker might be confronted with ethical problems related to patients and prescription drug use OR patients in a state of poverty.

  • Your scenario must be original to you and this assignment. It cannot be from the discussion boards in this class or any other previous forum.
  • Articulate (and then assess) the ethical solutions that can found using “care” (care-based ethics) and “rights” ethics to those problems.
  • Assessment must ask if the solutions are flawed, practicable, persuasive, etc.
  • What health care technology is involved in the situation? What moral guidelines for using that kind of healthcare technology should be used there? Explore such guidelines also using utilitarianism, Kantian deontology, ethical egoism, or social contract ethics.
  • Say how social technologies such as blogs, crowdfunding, online encyclopedias can be used in either case. What moral guidelines for using that kind of healthcare technology should be used there? Develop such guidelines also using utilitarianism, Kantian deontology, ethical egoism, or social contract ethics.

Describe the significance for the epidemiology

what were your impressions regarding the scope of epidemiology? Based on the material presented in this chapter, what topics are covered by epidemiology? That is, to what extent does epidemiology focus exclusively on the study of infectious diseases or on other types of diseases and conditions?

How would the clinical and epidemiologic descriptions of disease differ, and how would they be similar? Relate epidemiology to the term population medicine.

To what extent does epidemiology rely on medical disciplines for its content, and to what extent does it draw on other disciplines? Explain the statement that epidemiology is interdisciplinary.

Describe the significance for the epidemiology of the following historical developments:

associating the environment with disease causality

use of vital statistics

use of natural experiments

identification of specific agents of disease

Explain what is meant by the following components of the definition of epidemiology:

determinants

distribution

morbidity and mortality

What hypothesis are the authors testing in this paper

Answer these questions below based on the article attached :

Questions

1. What hypothesis are the authors testing in this paper?

2. Describe the sampling design. What was the sample unit and what was its size. How were samples chosen and how many replicates were there?

3. Describe the spatial patterns that the authors observed in terms of elevation and patchiness.

4. The authors use graphical representations of their field data to assert that the distributions of Conocephalum and Fissidens are controlled by flood frequency. Explain the relationships between flood frequency, elevation, and species distributions as shown in Figures 1 and 3.

5. The authors contend that the patchiness of bare substrate and bryophyte diversity is related to flood magnitude. Explain the relationships between disturbance magnitude, mean patchiness, and species diversity as shown in Figures 4 and 6.

6. The authors contend that the spatial patterns that they observed are associated with flood disturbance. List two other potential influences on these patterns that the authors evaluated.

What three factors did the authors investigate in this study

 

Answer these questions based on the article attached below:

Questions

1. What three factors did the authors investigate in this study?

2. Summarize the design used for the two Salicornia experiments. Describe the predictor variables, including their treatment levels, response variables, and number of replicates used in each experiment. Explain how randomization was incorporated into the study. Provide a visual diagram of the experimental design.

3. The authors state that as marsh elevation increases, stress from flooding decreases, while stress from salinity increases. Did their results support this assertion? Which figures (number and letter) present the results for flooding (soil waterlogging) and salinity (soil water potential)?

4. The authors state that one potential problem with the transplant experiment is that transplanting itself may have an adverse effect. Did transplanting affect mortality? If yes, provide documentation from the paper. Did transplanting affect growth? If yes, provide documentation from the paper.

5. What evidence (cite relevant figures—number and letter) supports the author’s contention that competition with Salicornia limits Arthrocnemum in the high Salicornia zone? What evidence (cite relevant figures—number and letter) supports their contention that competition with Arthrocnemum limits Salicornia in the Arthrocnemum zone?

6. Do the authors support their contention that multiple factors, both physical stresses and interspecific competition, influence the zonation patterns observed in the salt mars

calculate the total absorption in this room in each octave band.

You can also find the same artist’s entire Before the Storm album released under the name Thomasin Grace or Hera Laineyat various music providers (such as Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music) by going to the following link; note that this is completely optional and not related to the assignment.

The Assignment

Write at least 150 words in total addressing the following concepts:

  1. What does the song say about dark energy?  Give at least one specific quote.
  2. Is it consistent with what you learned in Unit 4 Part 2 about dark energy? Refer to the Encyclopedia Link
  3. What is the relationship between gravity and dark energy according to the song lyrics, and is it accurate?
  4. In what way does dark energy relate to the way the song writer is feeling about her life?

Based on the geometric measurements provided and the acoustical data measured, calculate the total absorption in this room in each octave band.

To do this, you will need to calculate the volume of the BPC. It is not a simple shoebox shape like the other rooms we have looked at, so this will require some effort. You will need to divide the floor into rectangles and triangles to find the area.

Once you know the volume, you can calculate total absorption by solving the Sabine equation for A instead of the usual T60. A = 0.16(V/T60)

Use the T60 data measured in the demonstrations. You may pick any of the data sets (sweep, MLS, balloon) for your calculations.

In the end, you should have a total absorption, A, for each octave ban
