Place Matters Discussion [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 2, 3]

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read Chapters 3, 4, and 6, and also watch the Unnatural Causes: Place Matters Links to an external site. The goal of this video and discussion is to introduce more real-world examples of determinants and demonstrate how strong of an impact they can have on a person’s quality of life. This is a two-part discussion that requires you to develop a table highlighting two positive and two negative neighborhood features, and then take that information and place it on a grid that can be built upon by your classmates. Specific directions can be found below.

Part 1: Brainstorm Neighborhood Features

Determine if you currently live in a rural, suburban, or urban neighborhood. Brainstorm neighborhood features that could have positive or negative impacts on health in your neighborhood. Features may influence health directly or indirectly (for example, health benefits associated with local parks are exercise and community interaction).

Part 2: Create Your Neighborhood Features Grid

Choose four neighborhood features and at least one positive and one negative health impact for each neighborhood feature you have selected (four health impacts total).

In this discussion, after reviewing the example table shown below, add the neighborhood features table to your posting to create your own grid as noted in Part 2. Highlight four neighborhood features with each feature having at least one positive and one negative attribute noted.

NOTE: It is easiest to copy and paste the example table and then replace the sample content with your own.

Again, ensure that you do not repeat neighborhood features if they have already been mentioned by your classmates as this will impact your score. Similar to Week 1, it is somewhat like a competition, as those who post early have the broadest selection of factors.

After you have added the neighborhood features and health impacts you identified to the appropriate table cell, post your grid to the discussion forum for your classmates to view.

Neighborhood Features TableNEIGHBORHOOD FEATURES TABLE (Rural/Suburban)NEIGHBORHOOD FEATURESPOTENTIAL HEALTH IMPACTSExample: Plenty of ParksExercise; community interaction; low childhood obesity ratesUse of pesticides to minimize pests in public areasNEIGHBORHOOD FEATURES TABLE (Urban)NEIGHBORHOOD FEATURESPOTENTIAL HEALTH IMPACTSExample: Living near a major freeway or roadMore expedited access to urban amenities like gyms, health care, grocery diversityAsthma from vehicle pollution; noise disturbs sleep

Social Determinants of Health and Social Science Theories [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 2, 3, 4]

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read Chapters 3, 4, and 6 along with the Moving Upstream: HowLinks to an external site. Interventions That Address the Social Determinants of Health Can Improve Health and Reduce DisparitiesLinks to an external site. article.

In your discussion,

  • Identify two social determinants of health that you think have the greatest impact on the health of Americans.
    • Use scholarly and government research, including national-level data, to justify your choice. Data from .gov websites (e.g., Center for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institute of HealthLinks to an external site.) are acceptable.

In addition, choose one social science theory from those identified in the Week 2 Instructor Guidance then,

  • Describe the key constructs of the theory and use one or two specific examples to discuss how the theory is used in public health interventions to address the social determinant of health that you identified at both state and national levels.
  • Identify one real-world public health intervention that addresses the social determinant of health you identified in your community.
    • Use scholarly and government research to justify your recommendations.
    • Utilize the University of Arizona Global Campus Library resource to help determine what are considered Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible SourcesLinks to an external site..

Much of what one will learn in a writing class consists of strategies for improving reader-focused prose. This makes sense of course because writing is a communicative technology with practical applications in the contexts of civic engagement and business.That said, writing is also a “technology of self” and a “technology of  descriptive ethnography.” This aspect of writing is the focus of every literature and creative writing class. Let me expand a bit.Any material thing or network you use to re-present your social identity (like a mirror or a selfie/social network) is a “technology of self.” Many “city” people feel very odd indeed (at least at first) when they go backcountry hiking/camping and they are separated from their technologies of self.

How could this matter to you–as student taking this class? If you are going to do anything in your professional careers that involves managing people or promoting goods/services, it would be important to understand how writing works as a means of cultural production (specifically, self-articulation). Secondly, there’s the capacity of writing to be a “technology of descriptive ethnography.”  Ethnography is the study (and documenting) of people’s identities; it is a branch of anthropology, the study of cultures and cultural difference. Thus, ethnography is a form social research, or data gathering and interpretation. Here’s a brief descripton of ethnography from wikipedia:

As a form of inquiry, ethnography relies heavily on participant observation—on the researcher participating in the setting or with the people being studied, at least in some marginal role, and seeking to document, in detail, patterns of social interaction and the perspectives of participants, and to understand these in their local contexts.

One innovator in ethnography is Clifford Geertz, who made famous the phrase “thick description” when he described an ethnographic approach that paid attention to everyday events. Instead of just observing subjects, Geertz immersed himself in their everyday culture, conducting interviews, and invited subjects to create their own self-representations. Thick description as a tool of social research contends that to understand individual lives requires background information on the webs of social relationships and emotional minutiae that operate in the background of any behavior. Thick description can be contrasted with thin description, which is a superficial account and does not explore the underlying meanings.PROMPT: Given, my explanations of writing as a tool, a technology, of self and ethnographic thick description, where do you see in “Heart Museum” Chew-Bose providing an account of her life is that is not simply a narrative, but rather a complicated (indeed, at times, swirling) self-ethnography? To help you get started thinking of this question, consider first how she MIGHT have simply provided a narrative about her life. Instead, she strings together a series of poetic reflections and vignettes of family and friends and her efforts to write. Chew-Bose risks “losing” a reader who does not want to want to enter the welter of her thoughts and memories–that is obvious. But what does she gain by writing in the “mosaic” or “impressionistic” way?

For this assignment, you will research and compare international and U.S. accounting standards. This will enable you to see

how the different reporting methods affect business and how product costs are affected by international business.

The learning objectives of this report are as follows:

1. Compare and contrast basic U.S. and international financial accounting standards.

2. Explain how key international factors affect business reporting.

3. Identify key compliance and regulatory requirements.

Using the Unit IV Research Report Template, prepare a four- to five-page written report with at least three scholarly sources

covering the items listed below.


Part 1: Select financial statements for two related (e.g., computer manufactures, pharmaceutical companies, cell phone

companies, etc.) businesses; one that uses U.S. accounting reporting and the other that uses international accounting

reporting. Identify the following items:

Provide the name, location, and accounting standards used for each business.

Compare and contrast three major differences you see in the way the financial data is presented on the financial


Identify which set of financial statements you think is the easiest to understand and provides you with most accurate cost

data as a manager. (Do not forget to look at the notes to the financial statements also.)

Part 2: Analyze and discuss three international factors you think would affect the cost of the products made at the

companies you selected and why.

Part 3: Discuss any compliance and/or regulatory issues you think would be involved in the companies you have selected

as they relate to the cost of the products made. For example, are there strict regulations on product pricing, tariffs imposed

on raw materials needed to make the products, or strict regulations on the wages paid to workers?

Conclusion and Recommendations

Discussion Questions: 1) In your own words, construct an overview of the critical information sector you choose for this discussion. 

2) Examine at least three of the following:

  • Unique aspects as they relate to national security
  • Risks/threats/hazards/vulnerabilities related to national security
  • Potential countermeasures/mitigations related to the continuity of operations
  • Minimizing disruption and improving first responder safety
  • Cross-sector dependencies/interdependencies 

3) Give your opinion on how either a physical attack, a cyber event, or a natural disaster could impact critical infrastructure.



1.This has truly been a busing week, and it is not over yet. I look forward to your comments and feedback.

The critical infrastructure sectors are composed of 16 sectors. The water and wastewater sector play a vital role in the success of sectors such as the Chemical Sector, which uses water to produce materials such as microchips, broadband devices, and solar panels; the Commercial Facilities Sector uses water in cooling plates; Communications relies on electricity which relies on hydropower, which is produced by water, Dams Sector and levees are used to manage water, the Energy Sector uses water for cooling plant systems, Food and Agriculture Sector use water in product productions and farming, Information Technology Sector uses water in a variety of way.

These 16 sectors are called out in Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21) as being vital to the United States and its citizens, and they should be provided support to ensure their operations, security, and resiliency to minimize any long-term disruption that could cause harm to human life, supply chain, economic secure or national security. This is the role and effort that the SRMAs put forth.

The water and wastewater sector have several interdependences that rely on its services, such as electricity, healthcare, IT services, and transportation, and dependencies, such as the chemical sector that provides chemicals to water treatment facilities that are used to manage the quality of the water or used to treat the wastewater. If any or all were interrupted by natural weather events such as hurricanes or manmade incidents such as nation-state-directed cyber-attacks for an extended period, it could have debilitating effects within the sectors, consequences in other sectors, and psychological impacts on the population.

The mitigation and other measures to minimize the effects of natural and manmade incidents is an effort that has been taken on by the SRMAs, the Government Coordinating Council (GCC), private sector owners and operators, and the Sector Coordinating Counsel, as well as a few other advisory committees and efforts. The goal is to increase the amount of information sharing and, at the same time, allow for the American system of free enterprise to flourish.  

The Emergency Services Sector (ESS) is one of the few sectors that deals with incidents firsthand and on a daily basis. All incidents originate at the local level, making it critical to keep first responders informed, well-equipped, and prepared to deal with any incidents they may encounter. This sector receives support from DHS Science and Technology (S&T) and DHS Information and Analysis (I&A). The ability to learn from emerging threats within the United States or over-the-horizon threats seen first overseas is critical to ensuring the safety of first responders.

The continued effort and expertise the private sector owners and operators bring to the table to help the government better understand their needs before and during an incident. They are vital to incident notification, response, and swift recovery from any incident that might have to be faced.


2.Unique aspects related to national security can vary due to evolving threats and geopolitical dynamics. There are several common unique aspects that are relevant to national security considerations like cultural diversity, location, cyber security, economic interdependence, border security, nuclear weapons, treaties, asymmetric threats. Technological improvements and intelligence. National security considerations are shaped by its unique combination of these and other factors. Effective national security strategies require a comprehensive understanding of these aspects and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and emerging threats.

Risks, threats, hazards, and vulnerabilities related to national security encompass a wide range of potential challenges that can impact a country’s stability and well-being. Risks in the context of national security refer to potential events or developments that could have adverse effects on a country’s security. These risks can be both internal and external and may include economic risks, political risks, environmental risks, and more.

Threats are specific entities or conditions that pose a direct danger to a country’s national security. They can be state or non-state actors and can take various forms, such as military threats, cyber threats, terrorism, or espionage. Threats often involve hostile intent or actions. Examples of threats include rival nations, terrorist organizations, and cyber criminals.

Hazards typically refer to natural or environmental events that can cause significant harm to a country’s population, infrastructure, or resources. While not always malicious, hazards can have profound national security implications. Examples of hazards include natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, pandemics, and environmental pollution.

Vulnerabilities are weaknesses that can be exploited by threats to undermine national security. These vulnerabilities can be found in a country’s infrastructure, institutions, or policies. Identifying and addressing vulnerabilities is crucial to reducing the impact of potential threats and hazards. Examples of vulnerabilities include outdated critical infrastructure, inadequate cyber security measures, and ineffective border controls.

Minimizing disruption and improving first responded safety are critical aspects of national security, especially during emergencies, disasters, and crisis situations. Some ways to achieve this objective are preparedness and training, technology and equipment, talking to the community, infrastructure resilience and information sharing, risk assessment and mitigation, resource allocation, and public alerts.
