Case General Education and Learning Styles Assignment Overview Dazed and Confused
|Details:||In this course we have seen that the current financial system’s main activity has been to extract rent from the rest of the economy, instead of allocating capital to the economy where it’s needed. The impact on society and the environment has been disastrous. The system has encouraged short-term behaviour and has caused inequality and debt, as well as environmental damage. Education in finance and economics have supported the predominance of the current paradigm, imprinting in people a short-term mindset that is conducive to self interest and profit maximising behaviour. This is unsustainable. We need new ways of financing, consuming, doing business, relating with nature and with each other. Which leads to why I’m teaching this course. However, this course is not really about finance. It is about questioning. What is sustainability? What’s the purpose of the financial system and has it served us well? Has it served the productive economy, the environment, society? How is money created and why do we have regular crises? What is the role of ethics, leadership and collaboration? Which new business models and structures have emerged and what can we learn from nature? How can technology contribute to sustainability? Which leads us to our final paper: What are the values which should be embedded in the financial system? How can you contribute to the transition to a more sustainable system? ‘bonus question’: you can include any remark / feedback about the course and how it has affected your vision of finance…or not.

Analysis Assignment: Putting Things Together
The principles of unity and variety apply to all music, regardless of compositional style or historical period.
Now that you are familiar with the concepts in the first section of the course (Basic Musical Concepts), and you have seen how they work on different pieces of music, try your hand, mouse, and ears at how they operate in a music selection that you may not have heard yet.
To do this, I will ask you to look at the piece below.
DO NOT SUBMIT A LIST (Nobody likes to read lists). Instead, take the time to write an engaging, well-written response that covers the points listed below.
playAssignment #3 Audio
Your analysis should include:
The number of different musical ideas in the piece (for example, can we say that there are two ideas A and B? Or is there only one?)
For major sections, are there any significant subdivisions?
The timings (start and stop times) of the different sections of the piece. (Hint: Listen for changes in musical ideas and timbre, for example, points when different instruments come in or give way to others.)
The question of unity is particularly important in this piece. There is a great variety of melody presented here, raising the question: what holds the piece together?
How unity and variety are exemplified in those sections through the use of:
Although there are sections that feature one instrument over others, whether you think this is a piece for a solo performer or for an ensemble.
Is there any improvisation in this piece? Or is it entirely improvised? In either case, how can you tell? And how does this determination affect your identification of the style?
A list of the characteristics of the musical style closest to the one this piece exemplifies. (Hint: Look at the last lecture in the first section of the course)
Define any characteristics that you list and, most importantly, identify specific instances of the use of these characteristics in the piece itself, including timings and details.
Whether you think this piece serves (or could serve) a specific purpose.
Whether or not it has any specific connotation(s) for you.

Research Proposal Instructions
Prompt: In 2,000-2,500 words, create a research proposal for your research topic that includes an abstract, introduction, literature review, methodology, rationale, conclusion, and references (the last of which not counting towards the word count) in that order.
1. You may use first person, but not second person. Only use first person when absolutely necessary to talk about the fact that you are proposing research. Some sections like the literature review should not have any at all, but you will likely need it in the methodology.
2. Your grammar, spelling, and punctuation should be flawless. Visit the Liberty University writing centers if you want extra help: https://www.liberty.edu/academics/casas/academicsuccess/index.cfm?PID=38382
3. You must use APA formatting.
4. When proposing that you will be doing an action if your proposal is accepted (like in your methodology), speak in the future tense.
5. Use Level 1 APA headings to differentiate between main sections where appropriate.
6. Your abstract should be a general, 150-250 word summary of what sections and topics are contained in your research proposal; avoid arguing or going into detail there.
7. Remember to look over the comments your instructor has made on your other related assignments and be sure to update sections of your research proposal for this assignment. Learn from past mistakes and successes.
1. Keep your audience in mind throughout. While your professor will grade your essay, remember that your audience will likely be someone who can grant money to support your research. Assume that person, committee, or organization is somewhat interested in your research topic. How can you show them that your plan to study it is a good one that deserves financial support? It will be easier to convince them if you can show you’ve done your research, your reasons for studying this topic lines up with theirs, and your plan to study it will be effective.
2. Remember that the introduction of your literature review is not the same as the introduction overall—the overall introduction usually focuses on the topic and segues into introducing the research hypothesis or question, which is typically the last sentence of the introduction.
3. In your conclusion, summarize your main ideas and emphasize the importance and future helpfulness of what you are doing.
4. Once you have put together all the pieces, read through your proposal several times to make sure that tone, ideas, and arguments stay consistent throughout. You’ve sorted out the puzzle pieces, but you need to make sure they all fit.
Risk Assessment Project
The most significant written assignment in this course is the Risk Assessment Project. There are 2 deliverables with this assignment: Risk Assessment Proposal; and Risk Assessment Project. The first thing you need to do is pick a business or public organization that you want to focus on and the key to remember is that the risk assessment will focus on information systems. So, you want to pick an organization that handles sensitive and confidential data. Some good examples are healthcare or financial organizations and online eCommerce businesses. I have had students in the past pick organizations like NBA teams that make the assignment very difficult to write.
The assessment should follow a strong framework, like the one presented and explained in our OER NIST SP800-30r1. While you do not need to know the specific information systems architecture (hardware, software, communications) at the organization, you do need to be able to discuss what sensitive data they capture, store, manipulate, and transfer.
I have created and attached a template for the final Risk Assessment Project to assist with the process. We will continue to focus on this assignment, and feel free to ask any questions you may have using the Questions for the Instructor Discussion or via email.
The objective of this project is to develop a Risk Assessment Report for a company, government agency, or other organization. The analysis will be conducted using only publicly available information (that is, information obtainable on the Internet (using a browser), company reports, news reports, journal articles, etc.). The risk analysis should consider legitimate, known threats that pertain to the subject organization. Based on the information gathered, presumed vulnerabilities of the company or organization&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s computing and networking infrastructure will be identified. Then, based on the identified threats and vulnerabilities you will describe the risk profile for the subject organization and suggest recommendations to mitigate the risks. The students will demonstrate in the Research Paper project their ability to communicate clearly and acquisition, application and integration of knowledge skills. We will have rubrics to evaluate risk analysis subject matter competency and communications and knowledge competencies.
You will submit a brief proposal (page and half long, double-spaced) in session 4. The proposal should include description of the organization you are proposing to analyze, scope (e.g., entire organization, key business area, major system, etc.) for the risk assessment, research methods to be used and preliminary list of research information sources and references. Your instructor will provide feedback on the suitability of the proposed subject organization and the scope, as well as the suitability of the proposed research methods and information sources.
The final output is a paper 12 pages (double-spaced) long, exclusive of cover, title page, table of contents, endnotes and bibliography. The paper must use APA formatting and reference citations (i.e. Stone, 2019, para. 4) with the exception that tables and figures can be inserted at the appropriate location rather than added at the end. This report is due during the 11th week of the course.
Hopefully by now you have identified the organization and business sector you will be focusing your Risk Assessment Project on. As you are working thorough your risk assessment, it is very important to understand that this assignment is focused on Cyber Risk Analysis, not business processes. Risk analysis can be viewed through either the IT/Cyber lens or the business lens. The difference is that the business focus is the bottom line of operations, in other words how will risk effect profit?
The Cyber Risk Analysis is focused on how will risk effect our information assurance? So, as you use the NIST documentation to format your Risk Assessment, be sure to focus on IT resources, and address the questions of how can the organization be hacked? and what is the potential cost of not fixing vulnerabilities? Both questions are focused on the vulnerabilities and threats to information systems you identify. In other words, the report should not focus on other businesses processes, like finance, accounting, manufacturing, sales, etc.
Your steps should be to identify a specific organization (e.g., Mayo Clinic), identify the sector (e.g., healthcare), use the information from the NIST guidelines to identify information systems (much of this is assumed to be a guess), and justify the risk assessment based on known breaches of other organizations in this sector (e.g., Medical Records Service Pays $100,000 to Settle HIPAA Breach).
**** The final output is a paper 12 pages (double-spaced) long, exclusive of cover, title page, table of contents, endnotes and bibliography.

Discussion post of American history
Prompt: This week’s reading demonstrates how slavery became a race-based system. This certainly provides us an example of the importance of laws and customs working together to create social norms and definitions since these laws worked to define Africans and African Americans as inferior. What do you think of all of all this? Use the documents to explain your thoughts. In addition to today’s laws and customs, what else is used to create today’s social norms and definitions (besides laws)? Reflect on these questions in a couple of paragraphs.
For your discussion, first view a video about Confucius put together by Dr. Bryan W. Van Norden, a professor of Chinese Philosophy. Following, review the “Selections from the Confucian Analects: On Filial Piety and Humaneness” you have already read, as well as the additional selection here. Throughout China’s imperial era, Confucius was often cited by scholar-officials as support for their arguments – regarding, for instance, how a person should handle a problem with a personal relationship or what kind of policies the emperor should adopt. For your discussion, select at least three passages from Confucius, explain what you think they mean, why Confucius was propounding these ideas in his own time, and explain why they might still be relevant today. If you don’t think any are relevant, then choose three and explain why they aren’t relevant.

American history discussion
Prompt: This week’s reading focused on the life of Puritans in colonial America. Some critics have, over the years, argued that you can still see elements of Puritan life, thoughts, and ideas in America today. American society has often been described as one that clings to its puritanical roots. You see this in various descriptions of current issues and events. For instance, here is a 2017 article recently describing the Baseball Hall of Fame as puritanical, another article from 2012 argues that Puritan ideals and morality are still very much with us today, and another article from 2016 argues that today’s prison system has Puritanical goals. Whether we agree with all of these connections or not is up for debate, but what is interesting is seeing these continued connections to Puritans and Puritan ideas. You can read these articles if you wish, but are not required to in order to answer the following questions for this assignment: First, using this week’s primary sources, what did you think of Puritan life? Which elements of Puritan society is America clinging to today (think big-picture ideas and themes as obviously there are no actual witch trials today)? What is puritanical about American society today? Use the assigned documents from this week to reflect on these questions in a couple of paragraphs.
Research the following: 1.) Spanish Exploration 2.) French Exploration 3.) Dutch Exploration. What motivated each group to explore and colonize the New World? How were their motivations similar, how were they different? ? How did Mercantilism and Joint Stock companies motivate these nations to engage in exploration? How were they similar in the way that they treated the Native Americans? How were they different in regards to how they treated the Native Americans.

Click on the following link and look at Macklemore’s lyrics to his song “Can’t Hold Us.” (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Even though his song is not about the Revolutionary War, some of the lyrics in this song (though not all of them) reflect ideas and issues people grappled with at this time. The music video (found in week 4) for this song also reflects and touches upon ideas found in the documents. Consult the following documents assigned this week: Thomas Paine; Samuel Seabury; John Wesley; Letter from a Farmer; Samuel Adams Pick three of the documents listed above. What would each of these individuals say about Macklemore’s song lyrics and music video? Who would agree with some of the lyrics (and which lyrics are you talking about)? Who would disagree with some of the lyrics? Why? Use their words to answer these questions. Note: This is all about interpretation. In order to understand connections between this song and the documents, you need to fully understand the meaning of the documents and the song. Don’t look for individual words or statements; rather, you should look for parallels, overlap, and/or opposition. Think big picture! I realize this is a different reflection. Just go with it and see what you come up with. Get creative and make some interesting connections. Looking forward to reading your ideas.
You are to write a current event paper, approximately 750 words in length, consisting of a summary and analysis of a current event having to do with American government and/or politics. You must cite a minimum of five references (sources) in the paper and include a works cited page at the end of the assignment to provide full bibliographic information for each of the references that was cited in the text of the paper. Current event papers must be formatted according to MLA style, for papers with no title page (see the following link to access an online resource for MLA style: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/08/). In addition, please use Courier New 12 point as the paper’s font, and ensure the assignment is double-spaced. The current event paper should have the following elements: Provide a thorough, but brief, summary of the political issue. An understanding of the issue should be developed by reading the articles uncovered during research for the assignment. The information provided in the summary will lay the foundation for you to react and respond to (analyze) the political issue. Be sure to properly cite within the text (according to MLA style) any information that you obtained from one of your sources. Citations must be provided, even for paraphrased information. Present your perspective on the political issue. Think critically about the topic discussed in the articles and clearly express your thoughts about it in writing. Consider eight standards for critical thinking (Paul and Elder, 2103): clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic, and fairness. Ask questions, such as How can I validate the accuracy of my statement? How is this information relevant? How does my conclusion address the complexities of the issue? What is another interpretation or viewpoint of the issue? Does my conclusion follow from the data and/or statements I have provided?
Actual Thoughts of the African Warrior
I’m going to put the instructions my Professor gave me. I’ve had a horrible cold and I think I’m dying but its ok. Please have the book or find it somewhere so you can quote things from it! Book: Nzinga, African Warrior Queen This book is a work of historical fiction, meaning that most of the main characters really lived, and most of the events detailed really took place. And like most secondary sources on history, the author interprets this history, or makes an argument about it. After completing the book, read the “Author’s Notes” (beginning p. 289). In your analysis, do not summarize the book, except where necessary to explain your points (I have read the book). Instead, explain the author’s interpretation or argument. Why does the author think the events of the book unfolded as they did? Why does the author think this history matters? [These are the “Why?” and “So what?” questions central to historical thinking.] How convincing do you find his argument, and why? Are there things the author might have done to make the argument stronger? From the section of “Author’s Notes,” what do we know about the author? Why did he write this book? What difficulties did he face in writing it, and how well did he address those challenges? Finally, as a work of historical fiction, the author needs to inform, argue AND keep the reader interested. How well or poorly does the author balance these things? If there are things that might have been done better, explain your thinking. Please note here I am not asking whether you “liked” or “ did not like” the book. I also do not ask about “themes,” “symbolism” or other things that would be relevant in an English assignment.
Following the last slide in the “Equality” presentation – write your business letter to your MLA. You must have the name of your appropriate MLA (party and address not important) and the date.

Font will be 11 or 12, single spacing, length – 1 page.
What was it like to live in the city of Rome in the Age of Augustus (27 BCE – 14 CE)? While a number of Roman historians tell us the political history of the period, examining the age of Augustus through objects that the Romans themselves encountered at the time, such as coins, statues, public buildings, and inscriptions, allows us to get as close as we possibly can to seeing Augustan Rome with Roman eyes. In the process, working with material culture, rather than more traditional written sources, enables us to experience history as both an art and a science. For this assignment, please select one of the following roles: Augustus Augustus’ wife, Livia A Roman Senator A poor Roman male citizen, who is a resident of the city of Rome A Roman citizen from a far-away province, who is visiting Rome for the first time A foreign diplomat who is not a Roman citizen, and is visiting Rome for the first time Using at least three of the different types of sources below (e.g., one coin, one statue, and one building), write at least one well-developed paragraph, describing your impressions of Augustan Rome through the eyes of your chosen role. Be sure to respond to at least two classmates’ posts.

M2 Discussion The Arab-Israeli conflict is steeped in historical roots. As a result, there are numerous issues affecting the conflict. Below are three contentious topics which have been heavily covered in the media. Choose at least TWO of the topics below and discuss in a thorough manner using citations. Secondly, respond to at least two of your classmates postings with in-depth comments. Your response should be in the form of furthering their points and or ask questions that will allow for a well rounded discussion. Be sure to refer to the book and readings when posting in the discussion forum. 1) Begin by considering and discussing what part the UN played/plays in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

You are also required to respond to at least two postings of others in the course. Israeli settlements Relying on the resources as well as other legitimate sources discuss some of the historic and ongoing issues of the Israeli housing settlements in Palestinian territory.

Israel security fence along west bank. the brutality of boundaries by conskeptical, on Flickr Creative Commons Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic License by conskepticalOpens in a new window Israel security fence along West Bank. What do you see as having been achieved through Israel’s construction of a security fence or wall between Israel and the West Bank? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the security fence? Western influence & media in the Arab-Israel conflict It’s long been argued that western support for Israel and the media’s coverage of the conflict has served to affect and shape events in the conflict. For example, it’s been stated by American foreign policy makers that support for Israel will usually be determined by US public support towards sympathy and attitudes towards Jews (“Still Special? The U.S.-Israel Relationship, 1998). In recent years, Palestinians have challenged the West by stating that the media coverage is affecting such perceptions and have been fighting back to promote their side of the story via their own PR campaigns and media slants. Using examples, discuss: What do you think of this importance of the role of the West in this conflict and why does the media play such a heavy role? How does the media affect public support for the Israeli’s or the Palestinians & to what degree? Are media depictions accurate? How can we inform ourselves to insure we have accurate information?
How did women react to the language of freedom and liberty being used to support the American Revolution
Topic : How did women react to the language of freedom and liberty being used to support the American Revolution? Be sure to include in your response Abigail Adams’s opinions that appear in the Voices of Freedom. Discussion 1 Around the American Revolution women did not have much opportunity. While they had more opportunity than women in Europe did they also needed more education. There was a struggle that women endured for their freedom and liberty. Abigail Adam was an evolutionary woman when it came to opportunity for women. She taught herself to read since education for girls was very limited. She couldn’t understand how people could have a passion for liberty yet deprive fellow citizens of theirs. She felt as though women needed full freedom although her freedom was much different than modern freedom. She believed a woman’s primary responsibility was to her family but she also believed a husband should not have absolute power over his wife. I wonder how prosperous women would be today if they had the same opportunities men had during that era? Discussion 2 Mrs. Abigail Adam was a very influential and bold woman during the revolutionary time. She taught herself to read during the time where education was limited for women. Her husband John Adams was president during this time which it stated that he relied on her opinion and advice very much during his time in office. At this time of freedom being denied to many including women, Mrs. Adams was an advocate for women’s rights. Adam’s wanted equal rights, she stated how could the passion for Liberty be so strong and equal when those that received liberty could deprive others of their liberty. Not all people supported the freedom of slaves, servants, religious groups and women. The struggle remained but with Adams she felt it was a time where women and other Americans that were denied freedom, a time to enjoy the same freedom as others. A time to rest and a time to reap the goodness of what the world is offering. Adam wants her husband to remember the women during this time, to be generous and favorable to them. For education to be offered, employment opportunities, to be given the opportunity of education before marriage, equal share in liberty, ability to dance and so much more. For the women to have a stand when it came to their husbands. For the husbands to not have complete control of their wives. Deborah Sampson displayed courage and bravery as she dressed as a man and enlisted and battled as a man in the Continental army and was later awarded the soldiers pensions. Women wanted to be able to have education or employment opportunities just as well as any man and clearly, they weren’t afraid to fight for it. If you were a women in that time frame, do you think you could of done what Deborah Sampson did? – You must write a discussion of at least 100 words or more for the topic presented. Also, you must end your first post with a question. – You must write at least 75 words each for the two discussion questions below.

Andrew Jackson then presents a vision of American Democracy which may or may not agree with Jefferson. As if this was not enough, we are subsequently introduced to the incredibly complex institutions of Southern society (namely slavery) and the efforts of various social reformers of the mid-nineteenth century to perfect this nation.

All of these topics are important to telling the story of America’s evolution from fledgling Republic to continental Empire.

this is for the M3 Discussion and for the M3 assignment which I did on its own assignment M3 Discussion Discussion on Terrorism vs. Acts of Violence and Language Please be sure to read the Content Guide on Terrorism for definitions and explanations and to prepare for the discussion Reading Qur’an by TAHA KREWI, on Flickr Creative Commons Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic License by TAHA KREWIOpens in a new window Critically discuss how “terrorism” is viewed and perceived and discuss how “acts of violence” are perceived. You are welcome to develop this conversation with examples. Why is terrorism primarily discussed in the context of international acts of violence? Why is this term not used as frequently in the US for domestic acts of violence? How do media participate in this language and consequently influence the view of other groups outside the US? How is citizen journalism changing the dynamics of new reporting? The point here is to have a conversation about what we perceive as terrorism and begin deconstructing the “language” used. Please be sure to view the Content Guide on Terrorism for definitions and explanations. Support your points with newspaper articles, credible websites and videos (with citations) and current event information.

As depression struck the new nation in the mid-1780s, new questions arose about the nature of American democracy. Many conservatives believed that the answer lay in a stronger national government. Most radicals believed it was up to the states to relieve the financial burden of the people. These sentiments fostered a movement for a new constitution. Political differences soon stimulated the creation of political parties. Compare and contrast the Articles of Confederation with the new Constitution of 1787. What were the strengths and weaknesses of the Articles vis-à-vis the Constitution? Give specific instances that demonstrate the weakness of the Articles (such as the Western problem). Then analyze the drafting of the Constitution, using specific details to show how the various states (slave vs. free, east vs. west) compromised in order to effectively draft a constitution. Pay particular attention to Roger Sherman’s plan, the Great Compromise, which broke a stalemate that could have been fatal to the development of the new Constitution. Finally, compare and contrast the debate over ratification between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists. Make sure you cite specific examples from the Federalist Papers to support the Federalist position and contrast it with leading proponents of the opposition (such as John Hancock). Analyze how the debate over a bill of rights illustrates the differences between the two parties. Evaluate the relative success of the Bill of Rights in achieving an effective balance between national and states’ interests. This paper must not be less than three double-spaced pages in length (not including the References page) and utilize no less than four academic quality sources. Margins should be no more than one inch (right and left) and the essay should be composed in an appropriate font and size. Sources must be documented and cited using APA format.

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand
The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part. Analyze how the forces of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war. Then analyze the events that drew the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events that led to America’s entrance into the war.

What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the 1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations.

What sort of impact may they have had on local communities? Compare these images to the first document. 3. Why was highway development seen as so important after World War II? In what ways could highways facilitate the growth of suburbs and new commercial development 4. What tactics were used to forestall minorities from moving into white neighborhoods and the new suburbs? To what degree were non-whites able to move away from older and segregated neighborhoods? 5. Who, and in what ways, did most highway development benefit? Can you make any connections regarding housing development, road construction, and exclusionary housing policies?

Discussion, Among historians, there have generally been two main interpretations of the Revolution. The first, as espoused by scholars like Gordon Wood, argues that the revolution is “the most important event in American history.” In their view, the Revolution was a watershed moment that completely transformed American society. Meanwhile, scholars like Bernard Bailyn have argued that the ideological origins of the revolution were actually based on much older ideas, and the American Revolution thus didn’t herald in a new era nor was it a transformative moment. Please write at least one paragraph explaining which interpretation of the Revolution you find more convincing. Provide support/evidence for your choice. Due today May 3, 2018 @ 11:00 PM (eastern time).
No writing required as I already did in my weekly post. Need help in Organizing it in to 8 pages. My group is Scientists. Attached is my weekly post. You can just copy and past but use transitions and organize them to match one thing to talk about as required from Instructor requirement below. ———————————————————————– Your final paper will be a case study of how a single group (men, women, scientists, philosophers, leaders, etc.) over the course of history (from ancient time through the 20th century) were influenced by the changes in technology or advances in knowledge. In other words, you will trace the story of your chosen group over time, illustrating how they were influenced and impacted by technological changes or advances in knowledge.In 8-10 pages (not including the title page and bibliography) write a succinct, grammatically correct, well supported paper that begins with a strong thesis statement (your principal argument) and traces the changes that occurred to your chosen group over time. You may include the content from your weekly posts but you MAY NOT cut and paste your posts into the paper. Synthesize them into descriptive paragraphs. Make sure you use strong transitions; sentences that carry one thought into the next and show a connection or correlation. I am not looking for a litany of disjointed statements that simply list changes your chosen group experienced but rather a narrative that traces the evolution of your group over time. Be sure to discuss the technologies or advances in knowledge that most impacted them and perhaps how those same changes acted differently on other groups. Your paper must be formatted in Chicago Turabian format, include a cover page and bibliography, and use footnotes.
U.S. History to 1870 In 1787, a former Continental Army officer named Daniel Shays led an armed rebellion in Massachusetts against the newly formed American republic. Men from several western counties, many of them Revolutionary war veterans from leading families, violently opposed the high taxes levied by the legislature to pay war debts. It was an ironic turn of events. In the 1760s, the British – looking for ways to pay their debt for the Seven Years War – decided to tax the colonists to increase British revenue. As we know, this led to the American Revolution. In the 1780s, the colonists were now in control of their own government, and – looking for ways to pay their debt from the American revolution and the new republic – settled on taxing the colonists. Colonists in western counties argued that they weren’t represented in the eastern-dominated legislature, and they rebelled. Shays rebellion would end relatively quickly, but what is interesting is that they viewed the new American government in the same light as the old British one. They called it “tyrannical,” and claimed “whenever any encroachments are made either upon the liberties or properties of the people, if redress cannot be had without, it is virtue in them to disturb government.” In this blog post, address this history in at least 2 paragraphs in your response to the following prompt: Was the Revolution truly a revolution, or simply a shift of power from one ruling class to another? Address Shay’s Rebellion and relevant evidence. Articulate a specific position (perspective, thesis/hypothesis) imaginatively, taking into account the complexities of an issue. Fully integrate alternate, divergent, or contradictory perspectives or ideas. Assignment DUE Saturday, May 5, 2018 @ 10:00 PM (Eastern Time).

How the war began
One of the things we always discuss in my face-to-face classes with regards to the Spanish-American War is how the war began. The explosion of the battleship Maine was the catalyst for the US going to war in Spain and thus acquiring an empire. However, while Spain was blamed for the explosion of the ship, it was not actually at fault. My question to you all is whether it matters? Do the reasons for going for war actually matter or do the ends justify the means? Most people do not question nowadays how we have Puerto Rico, or Guam, or the leasing of Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, yet these changes were the result of the Spanish-American War. More men died of fever and disease than the actual war itself, and the US then found itself in a guerilla-style insurrection war in the Philippines. Again, do the ends justify the means? Or if the reasons for war are obfuscated, is the war in and of itself unjustified? I realize this is a complicated question. I am asking you to answer the very best you can. Remember, if you are looking to do well you want to demonstrate you have read and understood the text. (Davidson, pages 431-438)
Please ensure to read directions and complete assignment on time and correctly. Due Monday, May 14, 2018 @ 9:00 AM (Eastern Time). The assignment is a Blog Post no longer than one page. One of the main focuses of this week’s readings was the development of political parties and political life and discourse of the Early Republic and Antebellum era, which is roughly the period from 1789 to 1860. Reason.tv has made “modern” attack ads by using direct quotes from John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. In public comments, political rivals frequently attacked not only their opponents credibility and policies, but their racial heritage, their manliness, their religious principles, and even their wives and families. After watching the link “Attack Ads in the Antebellum Era, In their Own Words” address the following prompt: What is the primary political legacy of the Early Republic and Antebellum era on contemporary American life? And in what ways are American political campaigns today different from that era, and in what ways are they similar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_zTN4BXvYI
In the 1960s, the civil rights movement was at its height. Congress passed the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act in 1964 and 1965, which first outlawed segregation in public places and dismantled laws that previously had prevented people from voting based on their race. Basically, these two laws finally buffered the 14th and 15th amendments, both of which were passed during Reconstruction. This information is covered in Chapter 29 in further detail. The United States was not the only place experiencing a civil rights movement. South Africa, Northern Ireland, India, etc. are just a few places going through the same thing. During graduate school, I lived in Northern Ireland for a semester. It is a province of the United Kingdom that for many years sustained a long-term conflict between the majority Protestant population and the minority Catholic populace. Catholics often complained that they were discriminated against in jobs, education, housing, and unfairly targeted by police. Does that sound familiar to Americans? It should. Stick with me here, because I have a point, but I need to explain a few things to get there. This conflict between Catholics and Protestants went on for years. Conflict is a nice word for war, because that is essentially what it was. For the better part of 30 years, 3,000 people were killed (in a place that is the size a few Chicago suburbs put together, so it’s a significant number) and generations were affected by violence. In the 1990s, though, most of the groups on both sides (not all) sought peace and a comprehensive peace agreement was agreed upon by a huge landslide vote. Part of the peace agreement addressed a long-standing grievance about Catholics not trusting the police force that was overwhelmingly (95%) Protestant. Catholics simply did not join. In the years that followed the agreement, the police force, which had been highly militarized during the conflict (understandably so) began to appear less militarized and more like a community type of police, and heavily recruited Catholics and other minorities to join the force. Since then the force is much more reflective of the populace. It must be noted that not everyone sits around and sings kumbaya
now. However, sometimes you have to fake it till you make it, and real progress has been made. (My master’s thesis was on this conflict so I am writing simply from memory and knowledge of events.) So here is the bridge: Clearly in this country we are experiencing a similar gulf between minority citizens and police. Depending on the color of your skin, the neighborhood you live in, your socio-economic status, our perception of law enforcement seems to vary based on our differed experiences. While our police forces tend to be more diverse than that of Northern Ireland, they are still not always reflective of the neighborhoods they patrol. (Please note I am not necessarily arguing that they must be; I am simply stating what exists.) In this discussion board, therefore, I would like you to engage in an exchange of dialogue about race, policing and community relations. What are the demographics of your local town/neighborhood? (I am not asking you to look at the census, but just simply comment on what you see.) Would you describe your community as diverse, and along with that, I suppose you need to describe what you perceive as diversity. What is the socio-economic status (if you feel comfortable talking about it) of your community? Furthermore, discuss your perception of police in your neighborhood and in general. How would you characterize your interactions with police in your local community? How much do you think those interactions have affected how you view the issues of law enforcement and community relations in a wider context? President Obama, on his way out of office, opined that we are not as divided as we appear. Do you agree with this statement? Or has the progress since the 1960s been more superficial in nature and we remain deeply segregated and racially divided? I would like for us to engage in dialogue on this topic in a way that allows us to share our viewpoints, whatever they may be. This is controversial in nature, but these are the very topics deserving discussion, and if we cannot do it in an academic setting, then where and when can we? I am very much looking forward to reading your responses.
