Write a 500-600 word paper that explores the ways in which the humanities reflect changing concepts of nature and the individual in different historical periods. Each team should focus on the Late Middle Ages. Give a brief summary for each period of the important developments in the humanities that characterized the period. Select specific works to illustrate your view of the changes that have occurred, and present an explanation of how and why the concepts evolved in the way they did. Each team should focus on the Early, High, and Late Middle Ages. Givea brief summary for each period of the important developments in the humanities that characterized the period. Selectspecific works to illustrate your view of the changes that have occurred, and present an explanation of how and why the concepts evolved in the way they did. Makeconnections to at least three other eras discussed during the course and discuss the changes that are evident. Providea minimum of 2 sources. Formatyour paper according to APA standards.
Your written brief should address, for example, the following; you may adjust the questions to better concentrate on the change you and your troops may face: How has the military historically dealt with transition from combat to garrison? How long did it take to make that transition effective? Which leaders are integral in order for this transition to go smoothly? What are some of the issues that arise when dealing with change? How has your branch of service been addressing these issues? What type of leadership style works best with change? Describe why the components of the leadership style work. Give an example of a leader that has used this style effectively in the past. How would you suggest these issues be addressed based on prior knowledge and experience? Be specific on how to implement these strategies. For this activity, you will demonstrate your ability to express complex ideas with clarity and precision by composing an oral presentation based on your written brief and creating a PowerPoint presentation with audio to enhance the content of your brief. After you have created your PowerPoint presentation and are ready to record your audio, first write a script for your oral presentation that is between 4 and 5 minutes long length. Remember, if it’s on the slide, you have to talk about it.
1. Sometimes all it takes is a little exchange to get the energy needed! Lets imagine that your snail above has an exchanger that actually uses the gradient of Ca2+ flowing in and K+ out to pump Na+ out. Specifically, this exchanger transports 2 ions of Ca2+ in and 1 ion of K+ out in order to pump 2 molecules of Na+ out. It turns out that the ion concentrations are a little different in this organism too, with both the extracellular concentration of Ca2+ and Na+ being 100 times the intracellular concentrations of each. However, the concentrations of K+, the resting membrane potential, and peak potential during the action potential are equivalent to those seen in the squid. Given this information (and assuming that you are working in a dish at room temperature [22C], please answer the following questions. a. First, please derive the equation for the reversal potential for this exchanger. b. Given this, please tell me whether this exchanger is likely to reverse under normal physiological conditions. Please explain your answer.
Assignment: Apply one political theory and one social theory we have discussed in this class; Socartes, Marx, Machiavelli,Durkheim, to a practical workplace situation. Be sure to explain the theories, apply the theories, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of applying these theories. A practical workplace situation can be any scenario in which someone in a position of authority or leadership has to manage others and make decisions such as how to relate to them, how to ensure their productivity, and how to reward or compensate them. Alternatively, you could write about an employees decisions on how to relate to a manager or supervisor, or how to relate to fellow employees. Draw from your own experiences at work. I work as a library tech in a college library.
Personality and Communication Styles in the Workplace After reading Chapter 9, 10, and 11, create an evaluative report about your personal relationships and communication styles in the workplace. Include the following in the report: Describe your personality and communication style Provide examples of your interactions with at least three people whose personality and communication styles differ from yours and cause stress or difficulties at work Select at least three strategies to enhance your relationships with these three people for a more productive workplace environment Recommend at least three conflict resolution techniques to be used in future situations with these three people. The Paper: Must be at least three-to-four double-spaced pages in length (excluding the title page, reference page, etc.), and formatted according to APA style as outlined in your approved style guide including page layout, section heading format, citations, and references. Must include a cover page that includes: Name of paper Student’s name & Pseudonym Course name and number Instructors name Date submitted Must use APA style as outlined in the approved style guide to document all sources. Must include, on the final page, a Reference List that is completed according to APA style as outlined in the approved style guide Must include a minimum of two scholarly sources excluding your textbook.
1. Lets talk second messengers! After all, there would be MANY processes in dire straits without them! a. First, please list 4 second messengers that we have talked about in class and in doing so, please include a bit about one of pathways that each is a part of (so what is activated first). b. OK, so what comes next? What do these second messengers then activate? Short answer? They often target protein kinases and protein phosphatases. Given this, lets talk about themwhat is the difference between them? In your answer, please give me 2 examples of specific kinases that we talked about in class. And even though we did not name names, please also give me 2 examples of where phosphatases act (as we discussed in class). c. Why have second messengers? A primary reason? Signal amplification! Considering a general signal transduction pathway, please tell me 3 steps when amplification occurs Please explain your answer.
1. Oh no! In a lab looking at AMPA receptor function, your clueless lab partners have taken a gene construct that encodes this receptor and have started playing around with 3 major domains (extracellular, intracellular, and transmembrane), swapping 1 or more of them with genes encoding either NMDA or GABAA receptors. Unfortunately they cannot remember what they have done! Thankfully, they have you to help sort this out. You express the construct in cells and then use patch clamping to test how the cells respond when you apply different compounds. (10 points) a. First, please tell me how you would determine the origin of the N-terminal extracellular domain? b. OK, so what about the transmembrane domain? How would you determine its origin (in other words, which receptor provided that domain)?
