Introduce the artwork, and be sure to include all technical information: title, artist, year, material. Put these into sentences. Introduce your idea or analysis.2. First Section (2-3 paragraphs): Historical Context [Note: ALL information MUST be cited. This information should come from a museum, textbook, or other reliable source. ANY information that is not your own ideas MUST be cited.]Who is the artist? What is their background?What is the artwork? Why was it made?3. Second Section (2-3 paragraphs): Visual DescriptionThoroughly describe the object, using art historical terms. Be sure to include a description of its composition, scale, color, line, facture (the visible signs of how it was made). Form: what is the shape of the work? Subjects depicted (for example, a basket of fruit, or a portrait of a political figure)? Composition? Tiered? Pyramidal? Strong diagonals? Symmetrical? Few elements? Busy? Focus on foreground? Scale? How large is the work? How large are its elements? Are some elements or figures larger or smaller than the others to give them emphasis? Colors (vivid, muted, earth tones)? Line (bold, delicate, straight, curved, patterns)? Lighting (natural lighting, gradations of light and shade, stark contrast)? Textures (rugged, smooth, jeweled, inlaid)?This paragraph should be based ENTIRELY on what you individually see – there should be no outside research, except to determine the materials used. The goal is for you to look closely and describe what you see precisely.4. Third Section (3-6 paragraphs): InterpretationIn the last part of your paper, give an interpretation of the work:How specifically does it express ideas of the artist in visual terms? What other ideas do the visual elements and function of the work express to the viewer? What does it ‘say’? What was the meaning of the work at the time it was created? Do you think this work is important culturally and art historically? Why or why not?Draw from the authors and ideas of our class to form an analysis of the work in regards to performance art. 5. Conclusion ParagraphIn this paragraph, draw summary conclusions about the artwork, incorporating the major points of each of the sections above. Avoid grand claims; keep this grounded in the writing you have already done!

7-2 Discussion: The Relationship Between Social Sciences, Methodologies, and Data Types

In your initial post, consider patterns you found as you were looking at this information. What did you notice? What is the relationship between your field of study in social science and the methodologies and data types you found? If a particular methodology was selected over others, what might the impact on your field of study be? (Hint: Refer back to your answers in your Module Six journal entry.)Then, choose two peers who are studying a social science field different from yours. As you review your peers’ initial posts, answer at least two of the following questions as you compare patterns of methodology choices in their social science and yours:Do you see other limits in their social science that they did not identify?What might the impact of those limits be?How do the methodology and data types preferred by their social science compare to those preferred by yours? Are there overlaps? Major differences?What do you see as the impact of these preferences, and is there something that could be gained in their social science if they were to embrace some of the methodologies and data types used by your social science?

Why pre-Bitcoin cryptocurrencies failed?

You can be intuitive and presentable. Use text, image, illustration, table, whatever you feel suitable.Note: you don’t necessarily need to understand how cryptocurrencies work. That’s part of this course and we’ll study that later. Just gather useful information on the reasons behind the failure of earlier cryptocurrencies. This will give us a good background of why and how blockchain got developed for Bitcoin, which hasn’t failed yet.Look at slide 6,7 of the attach slides to know what is different from bitcoin, and compare it to crypto currencies that were created before bitcoin like eCash, B-money, Bit Gold, Hashcash and why they failed and Bitcoin didn’t. you can also view this link for the white paper of Bitcoin. https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

Collaborations and Research Networks

Watch these videos:ForestGEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02UTPPmiKyMNEON:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSD84bIkWDw 2. Visit these websites and browse protocols and data collection:  At each site, read more about one specific type of equipment or data collection methodology/protocol. You will discuss what you learn in your DQ post. Forest GEO:  https://forestgeo.si.edu/protocolsNEON:  https://www.neonscience.org/data-collection 3. Read about GLUE, the white clover Global Urban Evolution project:  https://globalurbanevoluti.wixsite.com/urbancloverprojectNote:  The evolution of white clover and the cyanogenesis trait have been affected by urban environments, and this is the subject of Rowan’s Clover CURE (Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience). In this course, you will propose a scientific experiment that aims to understand the ecological factors that drive urban adaptation in this species. Upon request, your instructor may provide white clover data that has been collected along the Glassboro to Philadelphia (rural to urban) gradient by students in many sections of Introduction to Ecology at Rowan as they collaborated in the CURE. 4. Watch this short video about Rowan’s Clover CURE:  https://youtu.be/fF1aTtO93mk 1. Briefly describe the data collection equipment/procedure that you read about on the NEON and ForestGEO websites. What type of ecologically-relevant data does it collect? 2. What is a scientific question that we might be able to answer by collecting the same data for many years at replicated national and global sites (like NEON or ForestGEO)?Think:  How are the scales different for NEON vs. ForestGEO datasets, and how might this limit the generalizability of the results?3. What is one ecological factor (biotic/abiotic) that differs between Glassboro and Philly? Think like you’re a clover plant. Be specific.  Don’t simply say “the presence of humans.”4. Considering all of the resources you explored in this DQ, why do you think it is necessary for scientists to collaborate, take extensive notes and make detailed experimental plans?

This paper just needs to answer the below questison. 250-300 words will be fine.

QUESTION
We live in a busy and fast world. Mental health is one of the national health priority areas. The issue is complex and has several causes.

1. Based on the reading (C)Donnelly, Burgess, Simonds, explain how each of the following theories view human sexuality: functionalism, conflict theory, and social constructionist theory. How do feminist theory and queer theory challenge the above theories? That is, how do feminist theory and queer theory approach human sexuality? Finally, what is intersectionality?

2. According to lecture but primarily the movie “Kinsey,” what was Kinsey’s background? That is, what was his training, what was he famous for studying before he started studying human sexuality? What prompted Kinsey to begin studying human sexuality? What was Kinsey’s research methodology, and how/why did he train his research team? What were Kinsey’s two publications, and what did they reveal about sex? How was each publication received by the general public? That is, how did people react to each of his books? Finally, based on lecture, explain what it means to practice good ethics when doing human sexuality research. Explain with examples from the reading (9)Brandt how the Tuskegee Syphilis Study committed huge ethical violations.
