1. Does the notion of the “Mandate of Heaven” fulfill the purposes of the Socratic noble lie effectively? (reply 150 words)
Ruilin Hu:
(reply / comment peer 100 words)Although the “Mandate of Heaven” might have been a preferable Socratic noble lie for the rulers of ancient China, this theory lacks explanations of specific questions I seek answers for in my personal and professional life. For example, the Confucian “Mandate of Heaven” focuses on the possibility of overthrowing a terrible ruler who failed to care for the people (Chan 93). Precisely because it fabricates the noble lie from a broad perspective, Confucius’s philosophy summarizes the noble lie by requiring people to follow the will of Heaven (45). I have to admit that this concept of Heaven’s appointment might be a comforting thought in peaceful times, during which I do not have to make difficult decisions constantly. However, it failed to provide practical guidance to ordinary individuals on what to do during such a revolution. Since I have hardly waited for external directions in my life, and I do not “read between the lines” of everyday activities, I will feel baffled if I try to follow the “Mandate of Heaven” in chaotic times.Poli 131 – The Chinese revolution
Question :
1. Why do you think Chinese intellectuals would have been attracted to Marxism in the early 20th century, despite China’s “backwardness””? What problems would they have encountered in applying it to China? ( reply 150 words )
Jing Zou ( comment / reply 150 words )I think that Chinese intellectuals in the 20th century would be attracted to Marxism in several ways. The first is that Marxism brought enlightened ideas to Chinese intellectuals; for example, the New Culture Movement. In these movements, Marxism was converted into a guiding ideology in the capacity of being a foreign idea. Second, the demand of the working class that Marxism espoused historical materialism; and advocated a society in which labor and capitalism developed together. In the 20th century China, Marxism became the immediate need of the working class; it naturally became the demand of the people in practice. When foreign cultures flowed in when a country needed a dominant ideology; and just in time for the country’s development, they attracted intellectuals and became the main direction of development. They encounter difficulties in applying it to China, such as trying to change the traditional thinking of the people; thus accepting the new guiding ideology. Or, to understand the true meaning of Marxism and the changes it can bring to Chinese society.

PUB logic model

A logic model is a systematic and visual representation for showing the relationship between program resources, activities, outputs, and outcomes the program hopes to achieve. The main components of a logic model are inputs (resources), activities (interventions or strategies), outputs (evidence of activities; products), and outcomes (results or effects for short-term, intermediate, and long-term outcomes).
Use the “Logic Model” template to complete this assignment.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, APA Style 7th Edition.

Currently there is significant controversy, often along partisan lines, over government policy in dealing with Covid. The U.S. government

Currently there is significant controversy, often along partisan lines, over government policy in dealing with Covid. The U.S. government under President Biden has ordered larger companies to require their employees to have Covid vaccination or weekly testing. This was done in the interest of public health as an attempt to prevent the spread of Covid and to protect workers at their jobs by reducing as much as possible additional deaths and hospitalizations. Some states adopted policies that would penalize companies unless they provide broad exemptions, that might make the regulations less effective for public health purposes. Their position was that the Federal government does not have the power to mandate these policies because they interfere with citizens’ liberties and beliefs, and ultimately their right to make their own choices on the vaccine. The Supreme Court recently decided that the U.S. Government rules requiring bigger companies to mandate vaccinations or testing violated the constitution and therefore could not be implemented. This points out differences of view that can arise as a result of the Federal nature of our political system, where certain powers are reserved for the Federal government and certain powers are reserved to the states. So there are two interrelated questions in this topic to address, along with your reasoning and references:

The policy itself – should there be government vaccine/testing regulations on companies that require their employees to follow these procedures? Why or why not?
To what extent would you agree or disagree that this policy would violate the U.S. Constitution (and why?). Here you may consider whether or not there is a constitutional basis for this Federal policy? Again, provide explanation and references
This article (Links to an external site.)provides some background on the Federal/State issue, and this one (Links to an external site.) discusses the Supreme Court decision. Feel free to look into additional sources.

The outline assignment for your final paper involves turning in 3 things: 1) the topic you have chosen for

The outline assignment for your final paper involves turning in 3 things:

1) the topic you have chosen for your paper (it should be chosen from topics listed in the FINAL PAPER instructions, and not the same as the FIRST PAPER);

2) an outline that follows the structure given in instructions for your paper (see FINAL PAPER instructions) but which you will apply more specifically to your own topic. This should be a simple outline with just two section (Intro and Political History) and each section having maybe 3 subsections listed;

3) five references in correct reference format for resources (articles, books, etc;) that you have found that you will use in your paper, including the following information in correct order: author’s name (last name first); article title; article source (the name of publication such as magazine, journal, newspaper, etc.); issue number , pages and date. For example – “Doe, John. Funny Story. Newsweek. 10, 2, p12-16, June 10, 2050.

.

The outline will provide the basic points which you think are important to include in your paper, and on which you will go into more detail, in the final paper. It is a plan for the paper, that presents the basic, key components of what will be your paper. The outline format should look something like the example below, but see the FINAL PAPER instructions for the sorts of things to include in the different sections. And be sure that material you include in your outline is clearly relevant to your topic. The Outline needs to cover only the first two sections of the paper. It would be worth checking the Outline rubric on the links page, which I will fill out and return as feedback. The outline itself should be brief and need not be more than 8 -16 lines. The key thing is to find important relevant factors that you will write about in your paper. The structure of outline will look like the following (you don’t need to include policy recommendations section):

OUTLINE FORMAT.

I. Introduction (background information);
a) background information part 1
b) background information part 2
c.) (every paper should include “Different perspectives” on your issue
II. Political History
a) ….
b) ….

c) ….

The outline assignment is meant to get you started on the final paper and to give me the opportunity to make sure that you are going in the right direction with this assignment.

Evaluating nutrition news in media

Most of the nutrition information consumers read is not in the form of formal academic papers and research. Rather, we typically depend on websites to obtain nutrition information. When reading information on websites, remember the following criteria for discerning if the site is valid:Who sponsors the website?
Are names and credentials disclosed?
Is an editorial board identified?
Does the site contain links to other credible informational websites?
Even better, does it reference peer-reviewed journal articles? If so, do those journal articles actually back up the claims being made on the website?
How often is the website updated?
Are you being sold something at this website?
Does the website charge a fee?

For this discussion, please do the following:

Choose one of the articles/website to review. Diet Review: Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss (Links to an external site.) OR Keto Diet for Beginners
ho wrote the article and what is their nutrition background?
What scientific question is the article trying to answer?
What background information is provided on the topic? Is it backed by research that is linked in the article?
Is study design mentioned? If so, what was the study design that supported this article?
What conclusions were made?
What is the main point of view of the article?
Overall, what is your impression of the accuracy of this nutrition information, based on your assessment of the previous questions? Remain objective here and really try to determine whether or not this is a valid article and the reason you believe it to be so, or not.
