You must look at 5 presentations and post questions or comments for your classmates (“Great work!” Is not a comment that will earn you points). You have until Sunday at 11:59 PM to comment.

PowerPoint Presentation, 65 points: You will need to create a PowerPoint Presentation on your assigned public policy question of no less than 10 slides, plus an additional slide for your works cited (minimum total of 11 slides). A thorough and engaging presentation should include pictures, graphs and videos that will help explain the public policy made subject of your presentation. Should you choose to do your presentation on a public policy other than the one assigned to you, you will receive a deduction of 25 points from your presentation grade.

Each public policy question Dr. Hargis gives you will include a main subject and multiple sub-questions (see next page for questions). You must address (at the VERY least) every question and sub-question assigned. Along with the specific questions asked of you, you will need to provide the following (points will be deducted if you do not address these):

  1. A general explanation of the main subject of your public policy;
  2. Texas Republican perspective of the public policy;
  3. Texas Democratic perspective of the public policy;
  4. At least one bill in the most current legislative session that address this public policy (explain the bill and how it addresses the public policy issue);
  5. Pictures, graphs, videos and other items that will help “teach” your fellow classmates about the public policy; and
  6. End the presentation with your personal opinion regarding the public policy

Note: Your presentation will be graded for completeness and accuracy in “teaching” the public policy to your classmates, including all the sub-questions and the items, as well as how the information is presented. Quoted material needs to make sense, otherwise: DO NOT QUOTE. Your task is to take a subject policy and teach your fellow classmates about it. Plagiarism does not teach anything. Please make sure your color scheme is easy to read, that your key points stand out, and that you keep your audience (your fellow classmates) engaged. You must post your presentation to Canvas by WEDNESDAY by 11:59 PM central standard time. You must post your presentations as a PowerPoint or PDF file to the discussion board as an attachment when the discussion board opens for you. Late presentations will receive an automatic 10-point deduction.

Works Cited, 10 points: On the last slide of your PowerPoint Presentation, you need to list the sources that you used – you must use Chicago Manual Style (CMS). You must have a minimum of four sources. Your sources must be scholarly. You may not use Wiki sites or blogs. Refrain from getting information only from politician web pages as they are biased. If you include information from a news affiliate, you must include information from the ideological opposite news affiliate (I use the Fairness Doctrine when grading).

Comments, 25 points: The remaining 25 points will come from comments you post regarding other students’ presentations. You must look at five (5) presentations and post questions or comments for the students. Each presentation you comment on is worth up to 5 point for a maximum of 25 points, but please feel free to review all of the presentations. I reward exceptional interaction with up to 15 extra credit points.

Please make your comments constructive and helpful for other students. Your comments may concern the information presented or how the information is presented; for example, color schemes or animations, anything you enjoyed about their presentation or think could be improved. If you have counter research you would like to present, feel free to post it (but do so in a respectful manner). Include thought provoking questions or comments that can further the discussion. Please be courteous and mindful of your comments. Comments that do not follow the rules of netiquette will not be given points and may be reported to the Dean of Students.

Hydrocodone

Hydrocodone is an opioid drug also known as Vicodin, Norco, or Lortab. It is used to relieve prolonged severe pain that cannot be treated with other treatments or medications. In the USA it can only be legally used as a prescription from a doctor. Hydrocodone is not meant to treat any disorders but rather provide temporary relief to severe physical pain. It may also be used to treat a cough but usually isn’t prescribed for that reason. A typical dose of hydrocodone varies depending on the age of patient and severity of pain. The capsules are a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen or ibuprofen and the amount of hydrocodone per capsule typically prescribed are 5mg, 7.5mg, and 10mg. Doctors will advise taking 1-2 capsules every 4-6 hours as needed. Hydrocodone relieves pain by acting on the mu-opioid receptors (MORs) followed by the delta opioid receptors (DORs). It inhibits pain signaling in the spinal cord and brain by preventing release of neurotransmitters and activation of neurons by glutamate. The euphoric effect is caused by GABA-inhibitory neurons attaching to their mu receptors. This process increases the amount of dopamine produced, resulting in a pleasurable feeling. The drug reaches its peak 1 hour after oral ingestion, and the effects will begin to wear off 4-6 hours after first dose. The amount of time hydrocodone stays in your system depends on the person’s age, physical health, metabolism, and hydration. Generally speaking a single dosage stays in your system for 1-5 days. Like most other drugs, hydrocodone leaves your system through renal excretion, meaning it is eliminated in urine.
People taking hydrocodone as prescribed experience relief from any physical pain they have. Others may take this drug illegally for the euphoric effect and the sense of well-being. Cognition is affected by causing sedation and a “brain fog” feeling while motor performances are impaired as well. The most common side effects of this drug are nausea, drowsiness, itchiness, and dry mouth. Possible adverse reactions include headaches, frequent urination, tinnitus, insomnia, agitation, confusion, irregular heartbeat, hives, and difficulty breathing.Risk of addiction to hydrocodone is extremely high and is the second most abused drug in the US. People will often continue taking the prescription when no longer in pain to experience the euphoric feeling and may have a very difficult time quitting the drug. Withdrawal symptoms are severe although much worse if a person quits cold turkey. Symptoms of withdrawal from opioids include physical pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fever, nausea and vomiting, and general discomfort.In conclusion, hydrocodone is a helpful drug if taken correctly and under the supervision of a doctor. It is best to stop using as soon as possible to avoid addiction and other harmful effects.

The drug I chose is Adderall. The generic name for Adderall is dextroamphetamine-amphetamine, but it can also be called amphetamine salts. Adderall is an amphetamine that stimulates the brain. Amphetamines increase neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. This increases concentration and decreases fatigue. Adderall is most commonly used to treat ADHD by increasing attention and behavioral control. Adderall is also used to treat narcolepsy to promote wakefulness through increased norepinephrine. Adderall can only be obtained through a prescription.

The typical dose of Adderall depends on whether the medication is immediate or extended-release. Both the immediate and extended-release come in pill form. The dosage for an immediate release is 5 mg and it is taken once or twice a day. An immediate release dosage can be increased by 5 mg weekly until it is effective. The dosage for an extended-release ranges from 5 to 100 mg, but the average is 20 mg a day. An extended-release dose is taken once a day, usually in the morning, and the effects last until the evening. Adderall can stay in the body for 24-48 hours before being broken down by the liver. Adderall leaves the body through urine.

There are many side effects to Adderall. The most common side effects are appetite loss, restlessness, rapid heartbeat, and dry mouth. Most people who take Adderall experience a couple of mild side effects. Those side effects normally disappear after a week or two of using Adderall. The side effects I used to experience while taking Adderall were loss of appetite and dry mouth. Sometimes, individuals can experience heart problems and psychotic symptoms. Individuals can even die from heart problems caused by Adderall.

Adderall tends to make people more concentrated, energized, and motivated. Adderall can create a sense of euphoria in people taking higher doses. It can be described as sliding into “the zone” of intense focus while feeling passively happy. However, these psychological effects are the main reasons why Adderall gets abused. Many people, especially students, take Adderall to increase focus for studying and test-taking. Adderall addiction can start from several weeks to several months after the abuse has started. Repeated use of Adderall when one does not have ADHD can lead to developing dependence to feel “the zone” or avoid withdrawals. Withdrawal symptoms of Adderall include irritability, low moods, and lethargy. Repeated use also causes the brain to produce less dopamine, which causes people to have constant low moods.

I’m working on a english multi-part question and need an explanation to help me study.

1. Students will complete the FITT Principle of Exercise Lab 4.2 on pages 77-81. One activity must be walking or jogging. Once completed submit in the assignment box the three activities you choose and their caloric cost based on your body weight and intensity. Determine the number of calories you expend in walking for one week.

Example: 5.6 calories per minute X 30 Minutes of walking = 168 X 5 exercise sessions = 840 calories expedited weekly

2. PreviousOnce you have completed the predicted max assignment and established training load create a personal exercise program for your self by following the FITT formula guidelines. Choose 12 strength training exercises for your personal workout program. Use the resistance training method available to you and submit your type written program including exercises, workout weight, sets and reps ect. Submit this in the assignment submission box. and submit it into the assignment submission box. You can use an online program but it must be tailored to your needs and refect your training loads, sets and reps

.TARGET HEART RATE FORMULA

Read all of this before attempting to complete the assignment.
Determine your training target heart by completing pages 113-114 in the Lab book, (“Target Heart Rates”) or use this link to determine your training heart zone. http://www.briancalkins.com/HeartRate.htm (Links to an external site.) Submit your target heart rate training zone results as an attachment file.
1. To get your resting heart rate take your pulse first thing in the morning before you get out of bed and start moving around.
2. Decide on an intensity level of beginner, intermediate or advanced. Use those numbers in the formula for the lower % and Upper % spaces.
3. Divide the totals by six to get a ten second heart rate count to use to monitor your training levels. Walkers should try to push your self to get into the training zone.
Walkers will be at the lower end and runners will be in middle to upper number. IE: 24 -26 beats per ten seconds. This is your exercise pulse, “training heart rate” number. Use this number to determine if you are working hard enough during exercise.
***Please note that if taking a medicine for high blood pressure find out from your physician how it will affect your heart rate during exercise. A beta blocker medicine will not allow your heart rate to rise over a certain level no matter how hard you are working. Thus you will need to use a perceived exertion formula for monitoring intensity. Check with your physician to determine what type of medicine you are taking and how to exercise safely.
This link will take you to an article on perceived exertion: http://www.cdc.gov/physicalactivity/everyone/measu…

We read that there are seven contemporary approaches (theories) in psychology; namely:

  1. Biological
  2. Behavioral
  3. Psychodynamic
  4. Humanistic
  5. Cognitive
  6. Evolutionary
  7. Sociocultural
  • Of the seven, pick two (2).  Explain the two perspectives in ten lines each. 
  • Give a background of each of the two theorist’s perspectives you’ve selected (10 or more lines each).
  • Provide evidence of research that supported each of the two perspectives (10 or more lines each).
    How does each of the two selected perspectives explain “drug use” (10 lines for each analysis). For example, how does the biological perspective explain “using drugs” compared to the behaviorist perspective of “using drugs”.

Lend particular emphasis on “clarity”, “accuracy”, and “depth”.  I am looking for ‘analysis’ – not ‘commentary’.  Check out the sample provided Assignment#1-Perspectives sample(2).doc download.
