For this assignment, you are to ponder some reflection questions before listening to the lecture component. These questions aim to stimulate your thinking and focus your concentration on the topics to be explored in the lecture, as a means of provoking you into thinking philosophically while you attentively listen to the lecture. There will be multiple topics, but do not respond to them all. Rather, pick one topic to respond to that catches your attention or that you otherwise find intriguing. After you have selected your topic, spend 10 minutes pondering the topic’s questions and recording your thoughts. The reason for there being multiple questions within a topic is to assist with developing a response that has depth. For this assignment, do not be concerned about the number of thoughts you have on the topic. Rather, you should be concerned with the quality of your thoughts. In assessing your response, the teaching team will look to see how clearly and precisely you articulate your beliefs and how deeply you explain the reasoning for and assumptions underlying your beliefs. Here are the topics for you to consider:
Topic #1: Different religions and spiritual traditions make vastly different claims about spiritual truth and the practices necessary to achieve spiritual goals. For example, Christianity and Hinduism make substantively different claims about the nature of reality and how to achieve spiritual liberation. Even within Christianity, different denominations and sects disagree about the nature of God and the path to salvation. As a result, how can we know which religion, sect, or tradition is right? What criteria can we use to determine who is telling the truth? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position.
Topic #2: Does your sense of causation (cause-and-effect) influence your understanding of how pain and suffering come about in your life? Put another way, does your sense of how events in your life are caused relate to your understanding of how pain and suffering arise in your experiences? How so? Further, does this link between causation of life’s events and the experience of pain and suffering provide an understanding of how you might reduce the frequency of pain and suffering in your life? Why or why not? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position.
Topic #3: When engaging in mundane daily tasks, such as eating, walking, breathing, or brushing your teeth, how often do you engage in them with full awareness and concentration? For example, when walking, how often do you catch yourself being aware of each step you take, each part of your foot touching the ground? Do you think it would improve the quality of your life if your mind were to be fully engaged in each task and activity as you undertake it each day? Why or why not? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position.
There will be a total of 12 reflections; the two lowest scores will be dropped when calculating the final grade. This results in 10 reflections, each being worth 4% of your final grade. 6 reflections will be graded as credit/no credit and 6 reflections will be graded according to the rubric. You will not know in advance which reflections will be graded credit/no credit and which reflections will be graded with the rubric; as such, reflections should be completed with the expectation that the rubric could be used.

Introduction/background (approximately 300 words)
This part of the paper should contain a short history of the topic you have chosen. This may include the origins of the name, early observations of the phenomenon, and/or important people who contributed most significantly to what is known. You could also briefly discuss what interested you about your chosen topic.
State of the science (approximately 300 words)
In this section I expect a description of the important biological aspects of the topic. How does it work? Describe the mechanism of the disease and/or the key aspects of the biology/physiology/ecology being discussed.
Future directions (approximately 300 words)
Finally, discuss the limitations of what is known about the topic and/or what scientists are trying to find out or develop. Examples would include aspects of biology or physiology that are not understood and things being done to deal with a problem/disease.
Referencing (not part of the 1000 words!)
Your paper must have references! Citations in the body of the paper should adequately represent statements made in the paper (NO LESS THAN 6 REFERENCES. USE THE STYLE DESCRIBED BELOW).
They should be numbered and shown in the Reference Section at the end of the paper in the order that it appeared

“Tarnita’s Termites, Pacific Lampreys, and Large Brains”
This week our discussion is focused on animal evolution. For your primary post, respond to one of the following three topics. Also, please reply to at least one fellow student on any topic.
Topic 1 : Population Distribution of Termites in a Savanna. Watch the video (1) describing Corina Tarnita’s research on the spacing of termite mounds in savanna ecosystems, and then address the following: (a) What were Tarnita’s findings about the spacing of termite mounds? (b) What does Tarnita think is the main factor that governs the spatial distribution of the termite mounds? (c) How do the termite mounds benefit other organisms on the savanna?
URGENT!! need to be finished in 2-3 hrs.
don’t follow the due date I post cuz the system doesn’t allow due date in the same day with post question.
I really need help completing an assignment that is extremely passed due. This assignment was due on Sunday 02/18/18. I accepted a bid from a tutor that wasnt serious about providing help.

1. In the population growth model, dN/dt is a measure of ——————–.
2. In the population growth model, what is the effect of equal rates of birth and death?
3. In a growing population, in the population growth model, as the population (N) gets close to the carrying capacity (K), the rate of population growth (dN/dt)
4. In Predator-Prey Model 1, as the predator population continues to increases, the prey population will eventually begin to ____.
5. In Predator-Prey Model 1, why are the predator and prey growth curves out of phase?
6. In Predator-Prey Model 1, what causes the peaks in the prey population (i.e., what causes the prey population to stop increasing in size and start decreasing in size)?
7. When the predator population is above the prey isocline, the prey population is:
8. When the predator population is below the prey isocline, the prey population is:
9. Given that the Predator-Prey Model 2 combines aspects of the Population Growth model and the Predator-Prey 1 model, can you determine what is causing the fluctuations? Can you figure out what causes the populations to eventually stabilize at zero population growth?
10. In Predator-Prey Model 2, when a prey population dramatically decreases, the predator population will subsequently _______.

Natural History, the magazine of the American Museum of Natural History, has commissioned you to write an essay in the tradition of Stephen Jay Goulds column, This View of Life, relating evolutionary theory to an aspect of art, literature, history, philosophy or contemporary culture. The column, published monthly up through January, 2001, was based on musings of an evolutionary biologist who found analogies between evolutionary processes and diverse aspects of human culture.
For example, in one essay, A Biological Homage to Mickey Mouse, Gould likened the evolution of Mickey in drawings, to a reverse developmental process where the later, most highly-evolved drawings of Mickey had the most infantile proportions, and the earliest drawings had the most adult proportions. The essay addressed how evolutionary principles are unconsciously interwoven in art.
Your task is to brain-storm a commonality between art, literature, history, or philosophy with biology, and write an interpretive essay, suited for a museum-going audience with limited scientific background. Reading one of Goulds essays will provide a model for this assignment.
-develop analogy between something biological and something contemporary (evolutionary theory or some other constant)
-how the compare and contrast over time ( i want to use something from psychology or philosophy)
For this extra credit assignment, students will read short essays from the book, This Idea Must Die: Scientific Theories that are Blocking Progress edited by John Brockman in 2014.
Each year, Edge.com, a forum for thought advancement, poses a new question to exceptional scholars from various disciplines. In 2014, Laurie Santos, a professor of psychology at Yale University, posed the question, What scientific idea is ready for retirement? The prompt spurred 175 essays written by scholars ranging in expertise in fields such as anthropology, statistics, biology, computer science, philosophy and countless more. Below are 6 selected essays.
For this assignment, you may choose up to 4 essays to read and respond to. While the maximum number of essays you may respond to is 4, you may choose to only respond to 1, 2, or 3. In your responses, make sure you include what idea the author argues must die, why the idea must die, and how this idea is relevant to the field of biological anthropology by citing specific examples you have learned about in course material.
