hypertension, and high blood pressure

At this early stage of action research as you prepare to search for credible sources of information to help you build an action research proposal, discuss which viewpoint on these two perspectives you lean toward and why.

When researching increased activity, hypertension, and high blood pressure this learner is leaning towards reviewing related literature and refining research questions, while addressing assumptions. Mills (2014) asserts that variability in human behavior may complicate the usage of scientific tools that are used to draw conclusions, but those tools actually assist in determining meaningful analysis. As such, previous studies, reports, and inquiry will definitively enhance the quality of findings. Further, the review of related literature will help dispel such erroneous assumptions as the ideas that blood pressure and heart rate are always linked, blood pressure and heart rate have “normal” target numbers, and low pulse or blood pressure always suggests a problem; which are all false (Cleveland Clinic, 2017). Having a good grasp of research parameters allows for a more focused evaluation of the data. This is helpful to distinguish information that adds to the knowledge base.

How do you intend to use what you learned concerning best practices for research from the chapter and the web-based resources to help you search effectively and efficiently?

Essay on Medieval Europe and Japan

Essay on Medieval Europe and Japan

ou will first be expected to analyze eight documents that deal with religious and economic influences on medieval Europe and Japan. Then you will choose at least four of these documents to discuss in your work in an attempt to defend your thesis. A thesis is an academic term used to state your claim or prove a point.
Your thesis will directly answer the question:
“In what ways did religion and economics influence the development of medieval Europe and Japan?”
Your body paragraphs will support the thesis that you have developed.
Before you complete the assessment, you will be provided with tips that will help you understand how to analyze sources and use them to respond to a prompt.
How to Analyze a Document
The following four steps will help you analyze each document like a historical detective. This skill will help you to complete your document-based-question, or DBQ, project.
Step One: What do you already know about the subject of the document?
First of all, you should find out how much you already know about the subject of a document. Jot down as many notes as you can on the topic. For example, if a document is an excerpt of the Justinian Code, you should list what you have previously learned about this code.
Step Two: What do you notice about the document?
Before answering the questions, look over each document. What do you notice about it? For example, with an excerpt of the Justinian Code, read it over and list your thoughts about the excerpt. The same approach should be used for a document that is a picture or a graphic. Think about who the intended audience was. Is there bias in the document? When was it written? Is it a primary or a secondary source? All of these questions will help you to develop a conclusion.
Step Three: Answer the document question.
The great part about a document-based-question, or DBQ, is that there is rarely a “correct” answer. In a DBQ, you are trying to logically provide a point by using the evidence provided to you. You will be forming an educated opinion based on your analysis of the documents and what you have learned about the topic.
Step Four: How did answering the document questions help you generate ideas to respond to the prompt?
After you have answered your question, write down what you have learned. Also write down any opinions you have formed about the document that might help you write your essay.
Introduction
Start the first paragraph with an opening line that catches the reader’s attention. It could be a quotation or an interesting fact about your subject. Next add a sentence or two with background information to really set the stage. This should be followed by a thesis statement, which conveys the main claim you will make in the essay. Then briefly state the three main points that you will use to support the thesis.
Body Paragraphs
The body paragraphs should open with a transitional phrase that connects with the previous paragraph. Then state the points that support your thesis. These points should be backed by one or more pieces of evidence. Use your analysis of the documents that you evaluated as evidence.
Conclusion
This paragraph should restate your thesis and briefly summarize how you proved that your thesis is valid. The last sentence of the conclusion should contain a powerful last thought that will stick with your reader.

Urban Groundshifts

Urban Groundshifts

URBAN GROUNDSHIFTS
? Urban Groundshifts I: A new global order, a new economy
? Urban Groundshifts II: A new society, a new personal life
? Urban Groundshifts III: An urban species
In World Risk Society, Ulrich Beck (1999, 2) argues that “a new kind of economy, a new kind of global order, a new kind of society and a new kind of personal life are coming into being, all of which differ from earlier phases of social development.” Given the breadth, depth and speed of these interconnected transformations, it is tempting to think that we are living through an era of unprecedented change. And yet noted writer Henry Mintzberg once wryly observed that it is the great conceit of people in every era to believe that they are living through times of chaos and flux, the likes of which have never been experienced before(!)
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
(1) What is ‘globalisation’? What do we mean when we say that contemporary globalisation is multidimensional?
(2) Why is globalisation occurring? Does contemporary globalisation represent a novel condition? (3) Ulrick Beck (1999), in World Risk Society, has described contemporary globalisation as “organised irresponsibility.” In which ways is globalisation “organised”? In which ways is it “irresponsible”?
(4) What is a ‘knowledge-based economy’?
(5) One of the fundamental trends in the economy over recent decades has been the accelerating rate of innovation and change. The transition towards a global economy is often cited as a key reason for this trend. Why is this? Can you explain the link between the two?
(6) Many of the innovations and innovative companies that have profoundly shaped our lives in recent years have emanated from the brains, creativity and passion of young people. (Consider for instance, that the founders of Microsoft, Apple, Netscape, Google and eBay were all either teenagers or twenty somethings.) Indeed, David Forrest (2001) has gone so far as to describe the 1990’s internet and e-commerce revolution as “a generational experiment in changing the world.”4 Why is it, do you think, that young people have become key consumers and producers in the knowledge-based creative economy? What are the implications of this trend for communities aiming to prosper in the global knowledge-based era?
1) Sandercock (1998) identifies three major socio-cultural trends reshaping societies and cities. What are these? Can you identify ways that these factors are changing cities and city policy making?
(2) Fred Block (in O’Donnell and Hancock, 2000, 13) argues that in the post-war decades, most Australians adhered to what has been described as a ‘linear life course’. What exactly is a ‘linear life course’? Why do you think there was so much uniformity around the ‘linear life course’ during this era?
(3) Social researchers have highlighted the shift from linear to ‘individualised’ and ‘de-traditionalised’ life courses. What do they mean by this?
(1) We examined many interconnected economic, demographic and socio-cultural changes that are transforming the world. Reflecting on these changes, do you think that we are living through an era of unprecedented change, or would this just be generational conceit (Mintzberg)?
(2) Occurring alongside these changes (and closely linked with them), we have become an urban species. Given the scale and velocity of current urbanisation, we face profound challenges in trying to create urban places that are sustainable and that offer life chances. And yet Saunders (2010) and Glaeser (2011) view this urbanisation favourably. Why is this?
(3) What are some of the key challenges facing cities and city policy makers as a consequence of the economic, demographic and socio-cultural changes explored? What are some of the key challenges highlighted in Beatley’s (2004)?
