...Together We Stand James Leach University of Phoenix HUM111 October 21, 2012 Together We Stand We the people of the west community think something went wrong with the building process of the development of the community. We have noticed a number of outbreaks of residents getting ill. The illness is not spread past the housing community. We are concerned for the residents health and well being. We would like assistance in this matter so we can resolve the problems before they get any worse. Residents all received medical attention from their doctors. The doctors all rules out anything cause by viruses that were happening around the community. The evaluations from all residents were all the same no common illnesses around the community matched the one of our community. The doctor did tell us the cause of the illnesses could be caused by a gas leak from a long term espouser to a gas leak. The residents of the community still wanted to ask is there any other way something else could be causing this? Could it be a faulty part the gas company used? The community then had a different plumber that installed gas products to check each of the houses and see if there was any faulty parts. Then they checked the system for leaks. The findings determined there was leaks throughout the community in several locations. The gas company who installed the gas products during construction seemed to be at fault for this.

...Together We Stand Outline HUM/111 July 1, 2012 Together We Stand Outline I. Introduction To whom it may concern, I am writing this to inform all residents living in or around Bayside that we have had many of our residents become ill with similar extensive symptoms. We have been doing thorough research to get down to the bottom of the problem, and have narrowed the illness down to a possible improper chemical disposal at a nearby company. We are doing everything in our legal power to get this unfortunate matter taken care of. II. Diagnosis The first thing I would do would be to contact those residents whom I know have been contracted with the illness, and ask them questions related to, where were they at the on-set of the illness? How long have they had said symptoms? Did anyone who may have been with them get sick as well? Were they exposed to anything unusual that may have gotten them sick? I would ask many questions that could help me get to the cause of the problem. a. Symptoms Here I would keep a book and log every symptom from every person I interviewed. This would allow me to find a possible pattern in related symptoms. I would also document ages and genders of residents who got the illness, so to see if there is a difference in children versus adult symptoms. b. Medications/Vaccines After evaluating ill residents’ symptoms, I would then ask them questions about what they have done to fight the illness. What medications have they tried?...

Where I Stand and Why

...Assignment 4 – Where I Stand and Why There are different attitudes and opinions to assimilation. In the text “Where I stand and Why” by LaToya Powel, some different attitudes to assimilation are expressed. The text is about LaToya and her family’s assimilation in New York City. She’s interviewing her grandfather who migrated to New York City from Lumberton, North Carolina, in 1957 to get a job and a better life for his family. Her grandfather, Franklin Powell, and his wife Shirley Ruth Powell assimilated because they were forced to it. All the work was in white America, and if they wanted a job they needed to adapt the culture. The only concern in his life was to work so he could get a better life for his family, and he didn’t think about the forced assimilation. He gave his children everything that the white people had so it would be easier for them to fit in because it meant a lot to him. English was also very important to him, and he got mad when his family didn’t speak correctly because to have a conversation with corporate white people would be the survival in this world. LaToya has another point of view on assimilation. She is against it, and she doesn’t think that anyone should conform others culture. Everybody has their own identity, and nobody should be forced to change themselves. She wants to retain who she is. The white society has a huge influence on the way African Americans are living. African Americans don’t have the same rights as the white. By way......

Where We Stand with Isis

...Where We Stand With ISIS This past weeks newspaper clipping informs us that defense chiefs from 22 nations met at an air base in Washington, D.C. on the matter of how ISIS is going to be a long term campaign, how every individual state will be able to cooperate, and what they can do to continue on delivering the humanitarian assistance of all the populations that have been affected. This article is a perfect example on foreign policy and how president Obama is acting on the actions of ISIS and what he has done to try and stop them. Just like we discussed in class, foreign policy is the process of decision-making and at this very moment Obama is starting to evaluate different options on decision-making. President Obama is in the starting point of the decision-making process, which is the rational model. The rational model consists of 4 main objectives: set goals, evaluate their importance, calculate the costs and benefits, and choose which action has the highest benefits and lowest cost. President Obama exemplifies this process by meeting with 22 defense chiefs on the matters of ISIS and also a senior military official stated, “"This meeting is to share our vision, discuss coordination and our common understanding of the way ahead." Again, the U.S. led coalition is still in the works of implementing a more thorough action on ISIS. The United States foreign policy towards ISIS is an example of relative power; the perceived amount of power one person or......

The United Kingdom of Great Briatain, is a group of countries that like to think they are independent. Despite this, the fact is they are merged to a much bigger picture of the European Union. The inclusion of the UK has drawn many positives over the years with the economy, easy holidays, simpler migration and more than anything help from the other large nations in the EU. People from areas outside of the EU like the USA or Asia, would have to get a visa issued to their passport before they can even have a holiday. For people holding passports for countries inside the EU, they can move freely with not much problem and get support in the countries they are travelling to. This was has been ok for many years but in recent times the joining of several smaller countries to the EU has brought an unprecedented influx of immigration to the shore of the UK that has quickly escalated into a national crisis. This is something that has only resulted in only minute positives, with the country now struggling to cope with the demand for jobs and housing causing a lot of anger amongst the people. The UK is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which are all considered highly developed courtiers in there own right. The region boasts structured democracies that has controlled and helped the area grow for decades to be one of the most......

...Together We Stand San Juan County, New Mexico, one of the last breaths taking natural oasis left in the United States, is now literally having many of its dearest citizens in our community, taking their last breaths, in addition to many unknown illnesses such as cancers, and tumors. Personally, I have been a resident here for the past forty years, while raising a family of four beautiful children, and a loving wife; until the tragic loss of my wife, in addition to the sudden death our two newborn grandchildren due to cardiovascular issues. At first, I did not realize the coincidence, but later realized that our family was not the only ones who lost family members, sharing many of the same symptoms, which led me to investigate possible cause and effects of the sudden increased number of deaths in our community. After, many hours of research and investigation, one major common denominator kept popping up, “gas drilling”. Yes, neighbors, gas are the invisible plague that has infected our community with unnecessary death and illness. You may ask the question, why gas? For the past five years, no one understood or recognized the changes within our community until recently. First, I examined the common symptoms such as tumors, eye and skin irritation, birth defects, thyroid disorders, to respiratory illness and emphysema; and realized that statistics for many cities including Daytona, Jena, Blue, and Stanton all experience a rapid decline of health amongst their residents.

Where Are We

...Ahmad Baiyasi Honors 1000 Dr. Buccellato 24 September 2014 Who Are We? Campus Martius Campus Martius Park is an important gathering area for downtown Detroit. The re-established commercial center is undergoing constant renovation, with added public attractions such as new street level cafes and public sculptures to help attract Detroiters to one of the most vibrant parts of the city. Zlati Meyer states that Campus Martius helps to essentially revitalize downtown Detroit both economically and socially by getting people outside to enjoy their city (Meyer). Known as the “Point of Origin", the park is one of Detroit’s premiere areas. The historical decay and eventful rise of Campus Martius demonstrate Detroit’s own struggle for restoration. From its historical significance, physical, and behavioral aspects Campus Martius illustrates the city of Detroit and its citizens, a hopeful and persistent group of people. Campus Martius, translated as “military ground” in Latin, was named after a 180-foot stockade in Marietta, Ohio. It served as a militia training area in the late 18th century (Campus Martius). The fire of 1805 severely damaged the city of Detroit, prompting Judge Augustus Woodward to remake the entire city on a grid plan similar to Washington, D.C (Martelle). He organized the street and park layouts, and elicited help from some of the most recognized Canadian surveyors. They established the “Point of Origin” located in present day Campus Martius. This point is now...

...that could have caused any damage. I had to think about what the records would be called and how they would conceal it. I found out that the gas company was the cause for why the community was starting to get sick. Although the gas company as at fault we may not want to stop using their services, but merely let them know that the practices of their company is hurting our community. I think if we get together and ask the right questions we will be able to figure out a solution for this problem. I’m pretty sure that the gas company doesn’t want to cause anyone any harm, so confronting them and letting them aware of the dangers they are causing should not be an issue. We need to take the cautious approach when trying to decide what action to take. We don’t want to cause any more illness but we also want to make sure that we don’t cause any unnecessary dangers with the solution. We need to figure out what medical procedures need to be done and the correct action to take when dealing with the gas. By doing this it can help make sure that this never happens again and if it does it is easily detected and taken care of. Our focus is to stop the problem by finding a solution and taking care of those who have already been sick. We want our community safe again and I’m pretty sure you do to. So lets put our heads together and think of ways to address this problem and fix it....
