State and Local Government

Written Assignment #1

Since the passage of the 15th Amendment, various states have used their powers under Article I of the Constitution to impair the ability of minority groups to vote. The potential for states to use electoral laws for voter suppression remains controversial within contemporary American politics, as numerous states have recently enacted questionably restrictive forms of voter identification requirements. For this written assignment, you will conduct research on state voter identification laws and assess their overall impact on voting rights.

To complete this paper assignment, you must do the following: Select a state whose legislature has enacted changes to their voter identification laws since 2011 (see source list). Identify and briefly explain the changes to the voter identification laws in the state you selected. Discuss support for and opposition to the legislative changes in the state you selected, as well as any subsequent legal threats or challenges. Locate and draw upon at leasttwo suitable sources for each ‘side.’ Give your evaluation of these legislative changes. Consider the following questions:
Do the changes in your case seem likely to lead to voter suppression? Does your case suggest a need for greater federal oversight (or regulation) of state
voting laws?

Formatting and Submission Guidelines   Your paper should be approx. 1500 words in length (double spaced, 12pt font, 1”
margins).   Citations must be formatted in APA, MLA, or Chicago reference style.   Your paper will be electronically submitted via the appropriate D2L dropbox. Submit
your paper in .doc, .rtf, or .pdf file formats.   All papers will be screened by Turnitin plagiarism detection software

I strongly recommend starting at either of these two sites for lists and brief explanations of recent voting law changes.

www.ncsl.org/research/elections- and-campaigns/voter-id-history.aspx

Once you have selected your state,Google Scholar is an excellent place to start a general search; searching here will return primarily news and academic sources, with less various junk than a regular search.

Be picky with your research. For purposes of this assignment, sources that do not clearly advocate or explain positions for or against the laws in question or cannot be attributed to an individual person or civic organization are not likely to be very useful, and should be avoided.

Good Sources for Research

News articles and editorials
You should be able to readily attribute the source of the advocacy from this type of source. Articles from relevant newsmagazines would be preferable to newspapers. You should try to avoid articles that are overly short or lacking in detail.

Statements from elected officials Members of Congress / state officials frequently write letters or essays that identify their position regarding legislation. These would be an excellent source for this project.

Position papers from relevant interest groups / non-governmental organizations
Many organizations have weighed in on this topic. While you may not be able to find a singular author, being able to attribute the advocacy to an organization is good enough.

Questionable Sources for Research

Wikipedia / other encyclopedia These sources usually contain accurate information, but cannot be attributed to a specific author, and do not necessarily contain editorial content.

Q&A sites (e.g. Yahoo! Answers, Google Buzz)
The content of these sites should not be assumed to be accurate, and cannot be attributed to specific authors.

NO PLAGIARISM!!!

Discussion – Government Bureaucracies

Discussion – Government Bureaucracies.   The Constitution created a government to take on important responsibilities, which necessitated the creation of departments, bureaus, and agencies (the bureaucracy).  Consider your own experiences and reflect on the textbook to offer a strength and a weakness of a federal bureaucracy entity as it exists today.  Be specific with your examples.  Consider the following questions in your post:   What is the goal of the government entity?  What causes it to succeed or fail?  What changes might you make so that it is more successful? 
Directions

What is a strength of a bureaucracy you have encountered or learned about?  What is a weakness or bad experience you have encountered or learned about?
You’ll need to write at least two “meaty” paragraphs, one paragraph for the strength, and one paragraph for the weakness. That makes two. 🙂 Please make sure to spell check and proof read. Grammar matters.
Each of your examples should be briefly explained with a few sentences that form a complete paragraph. Bullet point lists do not work here. You must use the textbook materials but please refer to current event media sources to add context to your examples.  You need to properly cite all of your resources using a scholarly resource method, like Turabian, MLA, APA, or Chicago.

Complete my online class for the rest of the semester. Please take your time and read the instructions of the syllabus that I attached carefully. There are 4 sessions left to do in the semester. I am willing to pay $60 for each session, which would be a total of $240. I already did two assignments in which I both received a C+. I need the quality of the work to be very good and that you listen to the directions asked carefully. I would also give you access to see what I did in the previous assignments and then I will show you my professor’s feedback. Getting a good grade in this class is really important to me so the quality of the discussions and papers has to be high.

International Relations

International Relations. Your paper (10 pages)must engage how the themes expressed in Crisis Economics relate to the larger debates on financial globalization. The themes you will emphasize and examine will not only require a persuasive introduction defending your emphasis on a particular theme(s) but research outside the seminar readings to facilitate your thesis.

Please answer the following:

Explain how a variety of actors and processes (both domestic and global) coalescing within the United States facilitated a financial contagion that eventually spread across the globe. Also, are such processes endemic to capitalism to the extent that Marxists rightly predict capitalism’s implosion? Can Austrian (Hayekian) or Keynesian prescriptions help mollify structural deficiencies of capitalism? If yes, chose either Austrian or Keynesian school to support your argument.

To help frame your thesis please consider the following: What is the larger debate that is being addressed by Roubini’s book? Is this time different? What are alternative views? With whom does the author agree and disagree? What is your personal view on the better side of the debate?

Grading Criteria: Is your research question answered? Is there a argument presented in the first 10 lines and defended throughout the essay? Clarity, organization, structure (good outline, good transitions). Integration of class material, facts, and readings to back up the argument.

340 WK2 DB2. Prepare:  In this discussion post you will be discussing the role of women in the use and management of water resources. The required readings this week will provide you with a background on climate and how hanges to the hydrological system and the availability of freshwater impacts human health. The following summary will give you a good starting place for answering your discussion post; however, this is a complex issue and you will need to have a detailed understanding of the key factors and consequences of water scarcity before moving into how it disproportionally affects women. This information is also relevant to discussing land degradation and desertification next week.

Although water may appear abundant on Earth, only 2.5% of all water resources are fresh water. However, 70% of that freshwater is frozen in icecaps of Antarctica and Greenland leaving only 30% (0.7% of total water resources) for human consumption (Water, Climate Institute). Of this 30% of water available for consumption, 87% is used for agricultural purposes (Water, Climate Institute). Given these statistics it is easy to see how changes to the hydrological cycle can greatly contribute to water scarcity and impact human health.

As you learned last week climate change is associated with the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere; this affects the hydrological cycle in many ways including changes in precipitation and draught patterns, melting glacial ice, water quality, and increased coastal inundated and wetland loss from sea level rise (Water, Climate Institute). There are also many human factors that contribute to water scarcity including population growth, urbanization, and higher levels of consumption. These changes to the hydrological systems and ultimately the amount of freshwater available for human consumption puts pressure on food systems and creates unpredictable and extreme weather patterns (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (ncdc.noass). As you will see in the movie, India Water Crisis, these weather patterns can lead to flooding which can cause death and destruction to homes, cities, and agricultural crops.

The required report, Gender, Health, and Climate Change, will help you gain a better understanding of how women are often key water users and water managers in their community. For example, droughts and soil erosion disenfranchises farmers in Africa, the majority of who are female. It also impacts hygiene and sanitation which affects maternal health, women’s economic productivity, and girl’s education (Women and Climate Change Factsheet). You will use this information to create a discussion post on how women are vulnerable to the effects of climate change, but also how they are often agents of change in their communities. Women constitute the majority of the world’s poor and often depend on natural resources for their livelihoods. Their expertise in using and managing natural and household resources is used in climate change mitigation, disaster reduction and adaptation strategies (Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, 2015).

First, read the following required resources Arthurton, R., Barker, S., Rast, W., Huber, M., Alder, J., Chilton, J., … Zöckler, C. (2007). Water. In United Nations Environment Programme (Publisher), Global Environment Outlook 4: Environment for development (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (pp.81-114).

Retrieved from http://www.who.int/globalchange/GenderClimateChangeHealthfinal.pdf

Then, watch the following video India water crisis [Video file]. (2013). In Films On Demand. Retrieved February 22, 2016, from fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=100753&xtid=93803 Courtney, L., Gasek, P. (Writers), & Courtney, L., Notrnboom,, B., Vermeulen, K., Altekruse, J.

Retrieved from https://fod.infobase.com/OnDemandEmbed.aspx?Token=93803&aid=18596&Plt=FOD&loid=0&w=640&h=480&ref=

Reflect: As you read the two articles and watch the video consider the following: How have human activities such as population growth and increased urbanization affected global water scarcity? How has global climate change contributed to decreases in freshwater resources? What are the impacts of climate change on humans along the Ganges River? How are women differentially impacted by changes in the hydrological system and water scarcity? What are examples of extreme weather patterns you have noticed in your community of the United States? 

Write: Women as Water Users and Water Managers in Communities

The World Health Organization’s provides numerous case-studies on managing water resources for health on their website: Water, health, and ecosystem: directory of resources. http://www.who.int/heli/risks/water/waterdirectory/en/index1.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. These case studies explore innovative policies and practices that are being implemented around the world.

For this discussion post you will need to find one case study listed on the website and examine how women are not only vulnerable to changes in the hydrological system and water scarcity but how they are also effective agents of change in their communities. In your response, summarize the key issues related to water resources and health discussed in the case study. Then discuss the role of women as stewards of natural and household resources and their role in climate change mitigation and/or adaptation to changing environmental and health situations in their communities.

Guided Response: Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts in no less than 100 words by Day 7.
