Critically analyze how  contemporary gender relationship is impacted by the representation of masculinity in the media?  Provide two examples to demonstrate your understanding of how this is achieved.

  • Critically and conceptually analyze the questions outlined below in writing.
  • Do not repeat the assignment question in your answer; proceed directly to answering the question. 
  • Use full, grammatically complete sentences.
  • Define the concepts you use.
  • Explore the issue using at least one detailed and concrete example (do not use examples used in the readings or examples discussed in lecture).
  • Aim to capture the complexity of each issue by discussing how it might impact different people in different ways.
  • Your answers should be written as much as possible in your own words, but for each answer, students must use a direct quote from a reading or film.
  • Each question must include a direct quote from one of the readings/films; that reading cannot be repeated for any other question.
  • For example, Giroux’s reading is quoted in Question 1,  students cannot again use this reading in Questions 2 or 3 – a new reading/film must be utilized.
  • If you quote from a reading, limit the number of times that you do so, and ensure that the quotations you include are no longer than two full lines of text each. Answers that overuse quotations will risk receiving a lower grade. 
  • When you quote or paraphrase (i.e., put in your own words) the ideas or other contents of a text, give the author credit by including their last name in a round bracket at the end of the quotation or section of your answer in which your paraphrase.

Exploring  new technologies, strong emergence and relevance of new drone technologies into civil airspace;  and the means  the means adopted by ICAO to create SARPs  and achieve compliance of its law/rules which delivers wide ranging benefits to passengers, shippers, airlines and allied air transport users.

Coursework (50% weighting)

  1. The global Air Traffic profile (picture) is rapidly changing with new markets, new technologies, new stakeholders and – more recently – new pressures.

Of particular note is strong emergence and relevance of new drone technologies into civil airspace that has significantly gathered pace and momentum. 

ICAO statutorily, and in collaboration with member states is driving the pursuit of initiatives that supports a proportionate, risk and performance-based regulatory framework to enable drone services to flourish and – most importantly – to provide a safe, secure and efficient operational environment for manned and unmanned aviation.

Drones promise many benefits, but their growth also presents many challenges to today’s manned aviation industry, if it is not managed and integrated in the most appropriate way.

Unmanned area vehicles (drones), are characterized by many criteria – drone types (Fixed wing, Multirotor), level of autonomy, energy sources, size and weight, among others.

A local investor who intends to venture into a new emerging technology area of Drones, picked up bits of information scantily though, but is desirous of more comprehensive dossier; ahead of reaching this major business decision, has consulted a group in your Course.

Taking cognizance of Civil UAVs (drones), and using an appropriate drone model, synthesize its features focusing on payloads and other applications in a very structured way, and give your recommendations to address the concerns of the investor; noting advantages of Drones over traditional manned aviation platforms, justify the huge investment in the technology that may be required.  

  • Global standards are the foundation upon which a safe, secure, efficient and integrated global air transport system has been built and has transformed air travel from a high risk adventure into a routine part of daily life.

The most obvious role for global standards is in safety, and improving safety is the biggest issue.

Global standards however, go beyond safety. Consistent application of global standards in the regulatory world can also add tremendous value. The member states of 193 countries that cooperate through ICAO are currently working toward their agreed global safety target of zero fatalities by 2030, in tandem with the strengthening of their regulatory capacities, while pursuing a range of programmes and targets relevant to current core areas of global aviation safety planning, oversight, and risk mitigation. 

Given your understanding of ICAO structural framework arising from the Chicago Convention, and ICAO principles to which ICAO Member States are conversant with non-prescriptive principles that are consistent with international agreements, Articulate to your audience (a group of financiers seeking investments in Aviation) , the means adopted  to create SARPs  and achieve compliance of its law/rules which delivers wide ranging benefits to Stakeholders, passengers, shippers, airlines and allied air transport users particularly, since (ICAO) does not have the force of Law.

WORLDVIEW

OVERVIEW
This assignment is designed to help you understand the term worldview, and how important it is to have a consistent, coherent, and adequate worldview as you interact with others. Everyone has a worldview, though none of us have a perfectly consistent worldview, especially in how we apply it to our decision-making. There are five worldview questions that can help you know your own worldview and the worldviews of others. The Biblical Worldview uses the Bible to help answer these questions (2 Timothy 3:16). However, it is one thing to know how the Biblical Worldview would answer a question, and quite another to use that worldview to answer practical, contemporary, questions (2 Timothy 3:17; 1 Corinthians 10:31).

INSTRUCTIONS
For this assignment you are to define the term worldview (75 – 100 words), answer the five worldview questions from a Biblical Worldview (400 – 500 words), and apply that Biblical Worldview to two of four practical questions from a list of options (100 – 150 words). You are writing a research paper, so this assignment should be written in paragraph format. Headers may be used to introduce each part.

•	Cover page – This is the first page to be included in your paper. (This should be formatted according to the style (APA, MLA, Turabian) that you will be using for this assignment. See the sample paper in the Writing Style Guide link for formatting instructions). If you are using APA, an Abstract is not required.
•	Content pages – These pages will contain your content and fulfill the requirements as listed below.
Note: Add the word count after each part.
Part 1 (75 – 100 words) What is a worldview? Define what the term “worldview” means. Use descriptive phrases to support your definition. Use and cite content from at least one or two sources in this part to define the term.
Part 2 (400 – 500 words) Articulate the biblical worldview’s answer (what is believed) for each of the following five questions*. Support your biblical content with scripture (Bible references). A minimum of two relevant biblical references needs to be used to support the content for each of the five questions below. Do not write out the verses as it takes up too much of your word count. Just state the biblical idea and cite the biblical text to support it. Use the Writing Style Guide sample paper for how to cite scripture. Each of the five questions must be answered in a separate paragraph.
The Question of Origin – (What is the origin of the universe etc.? How did humanity come into existence?)
The Question of Identity – (What does it mean to be human? Are humans more important than other living things?)
The Question of Meaning/Purpose – (What is humanity’s purpose?)
The Question of Morality – (What is meant by right and wrong? How is morality determined?)
The Question of Destiny – (What happens when a person dies?)

*An overview of these specific worldview questions can be found in chapter 4 of Finding Your Worldview: Thinking Christianly about the World.
Part 3 (100 – 150 words) Choose two of the following questions below and answer them from a biblical worldview belief system. (Use and cite scripture to support your biblical content.)
How might/should a biblical worldview influence the way you…
1.	…think about and treat a person who doesn’t hold your beliefs?
2.	…vote in local or national elections?
3.	…act toward a family member who is hard to get along with and is unkind?
4.	…decide what to do when asked to do something unethical at work?

•	Bibliography/References/Works Cited page
a.	In addition to the in-text citations, a Bibliography/Reference or Works Cited page must be included.
b.	A minimum of three different sources must be used and cited in the body of your paper and added here.
1.	Use academic sources for your paper. (For example, do not include blogs, social media, opinion pages, or Wikipedia.)
2.	At least one of the sources must be outside of the materials used in this course (this would include the Bible, any required reading or videos, and the required textbooks).
c.	You are also encouraged to view the Writing Style Guide located in the Student Responsibilities tab of the Course Overview. Once you access the Student Responsibilities area, scroll down to locate the link to the Writing Style Guide. You will then visit the official style guides (i.e., APA, MLA, or Turabian) required in formulating your assignment.

Classmate 1: 
Why is it important to know what you believe and why you believe it?  
          It is important to know what your beliefs are and why you believe them for many reasons. One main reason is when the topic arises in conversation you are able to confront your beliefs with other people and you are confident in what you are sharing. When asked the tough questions you have the information available. In the reading, “Christian Apologetics” by Doug Powell, on page 22 he talks about three men who engaged in biblical conversation. One was an atheist and the other two were Christians. “The arguments and manner of Tollers and Hugo Dyson, the third friend, had a profound impact on Jack”. Jack, the atheist, “Over the next thirty years grew to become the most popular Christian apologist of the twentieth century.” The impact that the two Christian men had on Jack was substantial for his growth with God and he later wrote books for kids and adults to better understand God for themselves. 
Identify what you believe about God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ and why do you believe these things? 
          I believe God is almighty and our savior. He is our creator and heavenly father. The Bible is an extension of God and was created so that we can have a piece of God on earth. The Bible is a tool and guide but not a rule book. It should be studied, read, interpreted, and shared amongst everyone. Jesus Christ was sent to earth by God to show us the way and what it means and looks like to live as a Christian with biblical worldviews. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we can be saved. I believe all these things because this is how I was raised and what I was taught to believe in growing up in a church.  

Classmate 2: 
Discussion Thread: Beliefs 
     Being firm in what you believe is very significant and is especially important from a Christian perspective. In 1Peter 3:15 the Christian is commanded to "be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (KJV). This means that the Christian seeking to glorify God in every aspect of life is to be diligent in study and in the work of the things of God; being ready to delineate and defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is something that I think upon often as a Christain seeking to be faithful to God. My beliefs about God and Jesus Christ are defined by what is revealed in the 66 books contained in the Bible which I hold to be the inspired Word of God. In studying the Word of God I am led to believe that God is one in essence and three in co-equal and co-eternal persons (doctrine of the trinity), that Jesus Christ is the incarnate word of God and second person of the trinity, and that by His life of obedience and propitiatory death on the cross has purchased salvation for all the elect of God. The truthfulness of the scriptures and the witness of the Holy Spirit in my heart lead me to believe that all that is contained in the Word of God is true.

Hurricane Sandy: New Jersey, Disaster Response

Hurricane Sandy also known as Superstorm Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive, as well as the strongest hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season. The storm inflicted nearly $70 billion in damage and killed 233 people across eight countries from the Caribbean to Canada. Sandy was a Category 3 storm at its peak intensity when it made landfall in Cuba. While it was a Category 2 hurricane off the coast of the Northeastern United States, the storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, with tropical-storm-force winds spanning 1,150 miles.

New York higher education pros and cons

In new York city, higher education is one of the major industries that gives grants to some colleges and universities and has employed 266 100 people and has paid an approximate amount of $13 Billion regarding wages in the year 2009 (Richardson  & Martinez,2009).  The policy will have several benefits like assisting some of the students and parents who were struggling to pay for the fees and hence hindering them from getting a higher education in their career of choice. For example, the families who earn $100,000 and less would find it difficult or will struggle to pay for the college fees and pay other monthly bills (Li, 2002). Moreover, it will create employment for some people for some individuals in the New York City who will assist in handling the programs like in the information technology jobs and customer care desks for the students.

 Consequently, though the policy is good news to the parents and the students who have the middle earning point, it is bad news for the private college owners. Mitchell expects that the Cuomo’s plan will reduce the admission for most of the students in the private sectors. Moreover, the policy states that the student will have to work in the city for similar years and failure to which will convert the grants to a loan. There has been a lot of critics about the policy that the programs has holes in it since there are other payments to be made in the schools like the accommodation, board and other fees.  The issue is not free the way Mr. Cuomo is saying it to be, and the parents are expected to pay some money for the student (Wæraas & Solbakk, 2009).

Diabetes in Young Generation

The study question

 In a research article by Foy, Liu, Davidson, Sciamanna & Leslie, D. L. (2015), two specific questions were addressed to assist in guiding the study. First, will the group being investigated correspond to the quality of attachment with the other records done by other researchers regarding age factor? Secondly, would it be found that the reason for the frequent visit of the emergency department is only due to the diabetes reasons and not any other condition or behavior among the young people? The focus of the study was on a bit older youths in the society which comes to the emergency department and using a semi-structured interview and other data collection methods from the doctors to find out the reason for the frequent visit. It is hypothesized that some of the patients might be having some complication or might find it fascinating visiting the department. The sample consisted of 208 students and health practitioners to help in the study, and due to the time and financial issues, the number was reduced to 100 for the effectiveness of the survey.

Methodology

Among the 100 people chosen for the study, 20 were the doctors selected randomly in different hospitals to increase the accuracy of the research. Different samples or rather documents of the youths visiting the emergency departments were taken and recorded for analysis purposes. Moreover, a great alternative department for investigation was set to find out the accuracy of the results from the doctors to get rid of any mistake that might happen in the process. The samples from different sampling zones were verified and then finally recorded in one document for analysis to prove the hypothesis (Kleinfield, 2006).

The findings

The result in the study supported the hypothesis that some of the young people with diabetes would be visiting the emergency department due to the kidney problems associated with the condition which corresponded to the earlier research carried out. It was found that most of the young people who have the regular visit are from low-income families since they cannot afford the prompt treatment as compared to the wealthy families who managed to get the right dose of the disease. And hence do not need to go to the hospital frequently, the ratio of between the two families was five to one. It was also recorded that most of the frequent visitors among the number taken were the female youths who had diabetes but were going for some other medical check-ups to find out the state of their health. The ratio of the female visitation to male was around three to two which was not that big. It was also found that the doctors were also responsible for the patient’s regular visit due to incomplete medication that was not only on the side of the youths but across (Saidinejad & Zorc, 2014).

Conclusion

Therefore, the results combined indicates that the health factors like the cardiac vascular and kidney problems are the primary cause of the youths having the regular visit to the hospital emergency department (Young & Siegel,2016). The issue is related to the income availability to enable them to treat the conditions once and for all without constantly visiting the hospitals. The rich had the power to have one medication, and this shows that the young and needy youths are the one in the route. It can also be assumed that the doctors and lack of enough medication could also lead to the youths visiting the hospitals since they have the energy and would come every day just to check with the doctors. Therefore, several studies should be conducted to find out the truth of the matter in some years to come to verify the result found. The physicians and entire teams should also be involved in the study since they were also responsible for the same case. This would aid in testimony reliability and for a better assessment of the diabetes effects among the young youths in the society.

Language subordination

It is true that myths have affected the social setting in most society in some ways especially in the language setting. The myth confirms and explains the present ages which are true, and it influences the culture and attitudes of the people in the society (Lippi-Green). The language we speak came from our parents represents the origin where we came from, and therefore we should not in any way run away from it. This confirms that is very hard for someone to run or escape the maternal language due to what people say about your knowledge and skills of the language. It is true that the language will find its way to us no matter how far we may think we are running. Therefore, we should be proud to speak our language despite the upcoming myths and other contradictions from people around us in the society.

However, despite the strong belief of our language we are supposed to have one national language to enhance unity especially in the educational institutions within our nation. The ideology from some researcher indicates clearly that it is important to have one common language and this will help to reduce the discrimination that is happening among the people due to the language as a source of identity. The language is a determinant, and representation for any culture and community since a person’s language and ascent will show the others the tribe where he or she is coming from. Therefore it will be important to speak one language to end any traces of discrimination. Language subordination is imperative for the development of any society (Lippi-Green).

The Impact of Communication Technology on Diabetes

The Impact of Communication Technology on Diabetes Management

Course:

Professor:

Institution:

Introduction

According to some sources in the United Kingdom, about 81% of some of the premature health diseases like type 2 diabetes could be shunned easily by performing prevention and health promotion to the public. Therefore, communication technology has a significant impact on the health care systems especially for the individual with diabetes (Bu & Middleton, 1137-1142). The most imperative are; accessibility to the patients, its economy, the quality of care and perhaps the education aspect.

The economic aspects

Most of the healthcare globally is faced with the constant rising costs as a result of the chronic conditions. Based on the research carried out in Germany, diabetes cost about 10% of the national health insurance spending (Tomasi & Maia, 867). This cost is perhaps so much to the government and also the patients with diabetes which is then transferred to the health care departments. To reduce the cost, new technological advances and telemedical appliances are getting more and more useful to the medical centers. For example, the e-health systems such as the electronic health records were implemented to decrease the expenditure as a result of the dual therapy that was being done before. Based on the improvement, now the nurse can perform one therapy on the patient with diabetes and the records kept in the electronic databases to enable future responses. The development of ‘’ mobi diab’’ systems in the health care are used as standalone hospital information which is applied in the treatment and therapy of the diabetes patients (Chomutare & Hartvigsen, 65).

Accessibility

The communication technology has impacted the health care departments and the patients from different parts of the world with accessible information on any diseases or conditions.  For example Alaska, which the largest telemedicine program in the United States of America and may others around the globe (Jamal & Clark, 26-37).  The services have assisted both the patients with diabetes to get some information on the websites and to be helped without moving to the town centers for medication and diagnosis. Moreover, the health professors, as well as some doctors around the world handling cases like chronic conditions like diabetes, have also managed to get information through the e-health care systems. For example the development of the large medical databases like the Medline which can be reached anytime with both the patients and the doctors to get any information and also to ask some questions that can help the person health wise. According to the records given, most of the patient visiting the Medline are the diabetes patients, and the most question that comes in are related to diabetes (Eysenbach, 20). This indicates that most of the people that benefit from the systems are the people with diabetes.

The quality of the health care

The imaging technique has been used in most health cares to improve the quality of service delivery.  The imaging equipment such as the MRI has been used for remote viewing, interpretation and for consultation which is very much essential as a means of communication from one physician to the other and back. Moreover, the mobile apps techniques have also been applied to most of the world to allow communication and improvement of services through the patients and the doctors (Suler, 326). The management of the apps through efficient sharing of information has allowed for the sufficient understanding of the information especially to clients who wanted to understand some information. The apps have enabled the society to learn from the Medline and thus prevent the chances of worsening the situations they are in at the moment. Additionally, the patients, for example, the diabetes have received a well of information from the mobile apps. Most of all, the doctors have also managed to get some information that perhaps they are not sure of before performing the main action.

Conclusion

Maybe communication technology has added a massive impact on the health sectors globally. The improvement has been noticed on the quality of services that the health cares are giving to the patients as compared to the earlier services before the enactment of communication technology. We have seen things like electronic recording for keeping the records in a better way without losing the information or the data (Winkelman & Rosso, 306). Moreover, we have the development of Medline network site which has allowed the patients to get any information and also for the physicians to ask for any question of interest and thereby equipping the physicians with knowledge and skills. These technologies have helped the diabetes patients the more and most (Kim & Jeong, 1087).

Introduction

The innovations based on information technology have improved the quality of service delivery patients with long-term conditions like diabetes and other chronic diseases. The efficiency and merits of the application of new web systems, mobile, and other communication technologies have been proved by some studies that have shown their benefits (Blumenthal, 1477-1479). The current trend in change in the health care prototype, is based on the drift from medical service provisions to the patients, and therefore to disease prevention and health care promotions to assist the patients to control some diseases that can be monitored. Consequently, according to some sources in the United Kingdom, about 81% of some of the premature health diseases like type 2 diabetes could be shunned easily by performing prevention and health promotion to the public. Therefore, communication technology has a significant impact on the health care systems especially for the individual with diabetes (Bu & Middleton, 1137-1142).

Impact of communication technologies

The communication technique based on word of mouth has been used by different firms and organization. Arndt is one of the earliest researchers to find out about the impact of word of mouth on the behavior of a consumer or perhaps the clients. According to Arndt word of mouth (WOM) is a one on one communication that is happening between two people that are the receiver and the perceiver where to some extent the one is considered as a non-commercial brand. The recent studies have shown that the word of mouth communication is the best and most effective than the other forms of advertising because it has the power to influence the behavior of the clients who are the primary target of most organizations (Per Ab Hamid & cheng, 2013).

However, in the past decades, I have seen an improvement or rather a development internet based communication which has been impoverished in most businesses and changes the ways and the trends in the communication strategy (Per Ab Hamid & cheng, 2013). The social network systems have improved the marketing systems through the new opportunities that they can get and also the new connections that allow them to share information for acquisition of the right knowledge. The response of the social media in the marketing department has been positive, and most of the clients have shown interest in the process and have engaged so well with the marketing team and hence an improved idea since most of the firms tend to gain control over the customers and then move forward to get their loyalty.

Nevertheless, according to (Per Ab Hamid & cheng, 2013) concentrating on the development of the website alone does not, therefore, guarantee a proper or effective branding image of the firm. Therefore, to generate a global picture, the company should concentrate on the financing on the utilization of the various social network tools like the goggle+, Facebook, Twitter and others tools. The consumers use the social media platform to create and share the information of the company and the product and services they can offer to the society to meet the client’s expectations. They are also able to build an online communication network platform which is perhaps out of the marketer’s control, and the consumers put a lot of trust on the information more than the one given from the business directly due to the important notions of the social media.

Therefore, peer opinion has a lot of influence on the behavior of consumers while the electronic word of mouth has a significant impact in controlling and affecting the consumer purchasing behavior on the social media departments globally. Moreover, peer communication based on the social media backing has an effect on influencing the product attitudes which then affects the purchasing intentions of the clients who gains interest getting the product. Consequently, the recent study has shown a development of a new model known as the information acceptance model (IACM), which assisted in the identification and explanation of the determinants of electronic word of mouth that has been used to influence the buying intention of the clients. Therefore, social media is becoming a primary communication tools for most people especially the businesses who invest so much on the online communication to reach as many clients as possible and also to market their business or firms (Per Ab Hamid & cheng, 2013).
