Course Project Description

This project will require you write a at least 5-6 page (Not including works cited page or

graphics), double-spaced research paper. Your paper will be well researched, fully cited, written

professionally, and proofread.

This paper will give you the chance to explore one topic of your choice about globalization in

greater detail. Your paper will be organized around a central question. The question could be that

same as one of the issues discussed in class, or it could be one that you develop on your own.

The following topics are just some examples:

 Does global urbanization lead primarily to undesirable consequences?

 Should the World continue to rely on Oil as the major source of energy?

 Is the threat of global warming real?

 Is the International community adequately prepared to address global health pandemics?

 Is the global economic crisis a failure of capitalism?

 Is social media becoming the most powerful force in global politics?

 Will China be the next Superpower?

 Is religious and cultural extremism a global security threat?

All references cited in the text should be listed alphabetically by first author at the end of the

paper under the heading References.

Citations in text: Use the author-date system as follows:

 Jensen (2000) suggested that…

 Jensen and Cowen (2000) found…

 …as summarized in Richards and Jia (1999).

Multiple authorship citations in the text: Use the full citation for up to two authors but abbreviate

to et al. for three or more authors:

 Narumalani et al. (2002) investigated

 Hodgson et al. (2003) concluded that…

Abbreviated citations must appear in full in the reference list.

Direct quotations in the text: Should be page-referenced:

 (Jensen, 2000, p. 45)

Reference list: The editor assumes that all references are complete and correct. If authors appear

more than once, arrange entries chronologically and substitute the a 3-em dash for the name after

the first entry. Do not number entries. Do not abbreviate journal names. Books and journal

articles in foreign languages should be cited in their original languages. Use the following entries

as a guide:

a proposal to the city that describes the step-by-step plan your team intends to implement. Record your ideas on the University of Phoenix Material: Sustainable Agriculture Project Proposal Template.

our team has been given the land rights to an abandoned parcel of land. The land has some unknown contamination; it has been stripped of natural vegetation, soil erosion has occurred, and a stream on the property is polluted. You have decided to turn this land into a sustainable agricultural food supply.

Resource: University of Phoenix Material: Sustainable Agriculture Project Proposal Template

Design solutions to develop the land. Provide a development plan to bring this land up to agricultural standards.

Write a proposal to the city that describes the step-by-step plan your team intends to implement. Record your ideas on the University of Phoenix Material: Sustainable Agriculture Project Proposal Template.

Explain the following in the proposal:

  • The importance–both locally and globally–of having a sustainable food supply
  • The major threats to this land’s sustainability
  • The characteristics that will enable your land to provide a long-term sustainable food supply
  • The steps your team will take to develop these characteristics
  • Ways this land will benefit the city economically and environmentally
  • The timeline of your plan

Format your proposal consistent with APA guidelines.

SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1Geol 210: Homework #2 Name _______________________

Locating Earthquakes and Measuring Their Magnitude

The figure below shows seismograms for the same earthquake that were recorded at 3 different locations (Fontana, Kramer Junction, and CSUSB). The horizontal axis is time. Each tick mark represents one second, and selected times are labeled in hours:minutes:seconds. The vertical axis is amplitude of shaking, and the amplitude scale is shown next to the seismogram recorded at CSUSB.

1) Mark with an arrow the arrival of the p-wave, the s-wave, and the surface wave on each of the 3 seismograms


2) From the seismograms, calculate the time delay between the arrival of the p-waves and the arrival of the s-waves at each station and write your answers in the table below.

StationS wave arrival timeP wave arrival timeTime delay between S & PDistance to earthquake
Kramer Junction

3) Using the diagram below and the time delay between the arrival of the p-waves and the s-waves, calculate how far away the earthquake was from each of the three stations, and write your answers in the table on the previous page.


4) What was the maximum amplitude of shaking at the CSUSB station? ___________

5) Using the maximum amplitude of shaking at CSUSB and the time delay between the p and s waves at the CSUSB station, use the diagram below to calculate the magnitude of this earthquake.


6) Use the distance of the earthquake from each of the 3 stations in your table (Fontana, Kramer Junction and CSUSB) to plot the location of the earthquake.

For your initial post in the discussion topic, identify a typical dinner menu you might have in your new home (cape town, south Africa) and discuss how that dinner is representative of your new region. In your discussion post, consider the following:

· Location (e.g., what can be grown there because of the climate, soils, etc.)

· Culture (e.g., what is acceptable or not acceptable to eat or drink because of customs, religions, etc.)

· Human/environmental interactions (e.g., how the environment and culture have interacted to produce what is on your plate)

· Movement (e.g., whether items can be readily purchased due to globalization)

The Pacific Hinge region is still part of the United States. Most of the eating practices are going to stay the same. Although the more mountains regions up north west, like Seattle may see an increase in fish due to the area being so close to the harbor. Due to globalization most things can be purchased in that region, although it is much cheaper than most other parts of the world to get things such as fish and other forms of seafood there. The Culture in the area is one of a harbor town similar to Boston in the way that it is practically built into the water.

The location that I currently live in is in Erie, PA in the United States. The region or part of the world that I am relocating to is Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. I am moving there for travel opportunities, vacation, warmer weather, and humanitarian work. The food that I am used to is fast food (McDonald’s, Wendy’s, KFC, and others) so going to this new location is going to be interested. One of the meals that I will be having while I am there is Dominican Black Bean Soup. This consists of black beans, rice, onions, celery, peppers, and garlic. This is important to the region because of the region it is located. The location is helpful for the growing of peppers, beans, and onions. This region allows for the growth of crops to be used for fresh food. This is a cultural dish that allows me to learn more about the people and learn about where the food is. This is a representation of the region because many of the meals people eat, include rice, beans, and meat. The meals consist of many things that are in the meal that I am going to try while I am there. The grown ingredients will also be fresh and I will get to learn about what the people go through in order to produce the crops. The movement between the islands is also because the other regions have resources my new region does not. The people can move between the islands because of the water surrounding it. The region allows for many things to be trading, imported, and exported. I am excited about my new region and the new food that I will be trying. I will get involved in the culture and the people and learn new things from my experience.
