Cultural Landscapes in Google Earth

To complete these exercises, you will need to use a computer equipped with Google Earth software (available as a free download). You will be examining and describing cultural landscapes. You will utilize screenshots from Google Earth that you have annotated along with images of the locations. Narratives that you will compose will analyze and explain the cultural landscapes, using the multimedia materials as supporting evidence. Your first assignment consists of finding a unique cultural landscape in Google Earth. Larger scale images (more detail/smaller area) work best. When you find a cultural landscape that you will use, simply go to Edit, Copy Image in Google Earth and then Paste it into Word. Each primary image should be about 2/3 of a page. Be certain you include the latitude and longitude (Edit, Copy View Location).For your narrative, please use standard one inch margins, calibri or arial typeface, and 10 or 12 point, sin-spaced font. Each narrative should be approximately one-half to one page of double-spaced text. Draw on your lectures, texts, dynamic study modules, and homework to construct thoughtful, detailed narratives.Explore one location. Annotate your primary Google Earth satellite image with letter labels and symbols. Annotation is a required component of this assignment. Failure to provide adequate annotation will result in a greatly diminished score. (I strongly encourage you to view the rubrics for the course assignments).Then supplement your aerial view with ground based images of the features you highlighted/annotated on the aerial image. You are welcome to use “street-view”imagery from Google Earth or Google Maps for these supplementary images. Additionally, you can use images from other sources, such as online encyclopedias. Be sure you cite every image you use.In your analysis of your location, be certain to incorporate and develop a minimum of two cultural geography theories, themes, or concepts (e.g., the interplay of place and space; the gravity model of spatial interaction; the delineation of formal versus vernacular regions; models of urban development; Central Place Theory) and how they apply to the cultural landscape(s) you are discussing. Utilize appropriate terminology from the course to illustrate the theme(s)/concept(s) and be certain that you are explicitly clear in regard to which theories/themes/concepts you are incorporating. From a “big picture” perspective, think about and incorporate your thoughts on human-environment interaction in your analysis and explanation of these cultural landscapes.Attached is the sample paper.

03/01/2017 American Experience

Assignment 2: Presidential ElectionDespite commonly held beliefs about the popularity of presidents, presidents are elected by the Electoral College. This uniquely American institution consists of representatives of each state who cast the final ballots that actually elect the president. The total number of electors for each state is equal to the number of senators and representatives from that state in the U.S. Congress. The District of Columbia is accorded three electoral votes bringing the total number of votes to 538. Thus, the magic number for winning the presidency is 270 votes.Research the most recent presidential election using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet and write a paper on the topic. Include the following in your paper:Identify the major issues of concern to voters and compare how each presidential candidate addressed those issues.Summarize information relevant to the issues and the election.Evaluate the validity of each candidate’s arguments.Cite your sources and prepare a title and reference page according to APA standards.Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format (excluding title and reference pages). Apply APA standards for writing style to your work. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.By Wednesday, March 1, 2017, deliver your assignment to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

Research Paper for Geography

GEOG 1301 RESEARCH PAPER Each student will compare and contrast the physical geography of a pair of assigned nations. This writing assignment is designed to provide students with a more in-depth understanding of prominent physical geography features in two different assigned nations.  Additionally, the assignment will provide a more thorough understanding of human/nature interaction, along with environmental issues, within these nations. The nation pairs are listed below this assignment. Writing about nations other than the ones assigned to you will result in a 30% reduction of your score.The paper needs to be at least 4 full pages of writing total. It needs to all be turned in as one single essay paper, complete with introduction and conclusion paragraphs and a thesis statement.  See Page 3 for the list of questions to answer for the paper.Format: Papers are to be double-spaced, 12-font with 1-inch margins. No cover page is required. Have your name written at the top of the first page, with a title and page numbers. Your paper needs to be organized in paragraph form, including an intro and a conclusion.  The intro paragraph needs to have a specific thesis statement that gives an overview of your analysis of the material in its entirety (This is best written AFTER doing all the research and writing for the paper).Any photographs, maps, tables, etc., need to be attached at the end of the paper only, and they do not count as part of the length of the paper. If you want to attach a cover page, it will also not count towards the paper length.The amount of writing on each of your two countries should be roughly equal in length.Grammar, Spelling:It is expected that these papers are free of excessive grammatical and spelling errors. Sources, Bibliography: You must have at least 5 academic/scholarly sources total and list them in a bibliography at the end of each paper.  Use MLA or Chicago Manual of Style which you can Google to find websites with examples of this format. All sources MUST be cited in the body of your paper (see “In-Text Citations” below) AND listed in a bibliography, otherwise you will receive a score of ZERO for the paper and potentially an F for the entire course! Copying and pasting over 20% of your paper from another source, without providing citations, is an automatic F. Only 2 of the scholarly sources can be encyclopedias. Once you have 3 more scholarly sources (from books, etc), you can add additional encyclopedia articles if you wish. Scholarly sources include: Journal articles from college library or college library website. Books from researchers (at college library). Most encyclopedias (not Wikipedia). “Dot-gov” websites. Non-scholarly sources include: News articles. Pop culture websites, magazines, or other forms of mass media. Recommended starting points: – World Factbook from CIA.GOV (an online encyclopedia)-          Academic Search Complete (a journal database)-          JSTOR  (a journal database)In-Text Citations:Parenthetical citations are to be placed at the end of EACH sentence where you received a quote, an idea, or a statistic from one of your sources.No more than 10% of this assignment should be quoted word-for-word (even if in quotation marks). To avoid plagiarism (copying another’s writing without giving credit), you will need to provide citations within the body of your paper.  A good rule of thumb is that if you have at least a couple citations in each paragraph, you will probably not be accused of plagiarizing (unless you often quote word-for-word without quotation marks). However, you will still lose points if you do not cite ALL of the sentences which need citations. Examples of in-text parenthetical citations: Ways to Avoid an Automatic ZERO: -Use parenthetical citations as needed inside the body of your paper. -Do not copy multiple paragraphs from other sources without citing.-Remember to include a Bibliography page at the end of your paper. The 4 parts of the course paper:Part 1: Lithosphere- For each country, what is one major geologic feature (can include mountains, desert, plains, coast, etc)? – Briefly describe these features, how they came to look like how they do today.- How are humans using these features (tourism, nature reserve, sacred lands, extracting resources, etc)?- Does human use of these features create concern for the future of these features, or the wildlife found on them? If so, explain how. – Print pictures of the geologic features, or maps showing where these features are located, and attach them to the back of the paper. Part 2: Atmosphere- For each country, describe the year-round climate found in the majority of the country (climate maps will help with this). If there is a wide variety of climate types in one country, just pick one city and describe its climate. Be sure to include information about temperature, precipitation, and seasonal changes in both, such as the extremes of the temperature and precipitation differences. – Has climate change already impacted these nations (whether the people or the natural environment)? How so?- What is one major concern for each country in the future related to climate change? What is being done about it? Part 3: Hydrosphere- What is one major body of water found within, or adjacent to, each of your assigned nations? Describe them, and give a brief description of where they are found.- How are humans using these features (fishing, tourism, wildlife etc)?- Does human use of these features create concern for the future of these features or the living organisms found within them? If so, explain how. Part 4: Biosphere / Environmental Sustainability Challenges:-What are 2 environmental sustainability issues (deforestation, urbanization, poaching, etc.) in each of your nations, aside from climate change itself? This can also involve environmental problems humans face, such as pollution or water scarcity. – Why do these problems exist? – Sustainable development involves balancing the environment, the economy, and society to achieve the best long-term benefits for all. What type of sustainable development programs/efforts exist to improve your nations’ environmental problems? Your answer can include actions being taken by either your assigned nations or other nations providing assistance. Two nations for Research Paper are:  Afghanistan and Uzbekistan.
