[SOLVED] Eaklor V. Queer America

1.      The book makes the point that “GLBT” history is U.S. History.”  What does it mean to say so?  How does Dr. Eaklor support that point ?2.      What specific people have set out to impede LGBT rights?  What were their motives and strategies?  What specific people have set out to secure these rights?  In each case, to what extent  have their efforts been successful? 3.      How have legal decisions, media portrayals, and government actions affected LGBTQ Americans for the better and for the worse? 4.      Remember the “fear + a trigger = a scapegoat” pattern from your writing on Salem.  How do we see that pattern in LGBTQ history?  Hate crimes are a good area of focus here,  but not the only one.  Was there progress in the aftermath of the events you have chosen,  or not?  Why? 5.  What in this book was new to you, and why is what you have learned important? 6.  Conclusion.  Did Dr. Eaklor make her case that “GLBT” history is U.S. History?  Do you have any criticism of the book?  Would you recommend it?

[SOLVED] Primate Characteristics

making sure to include the question number.1.What are primitive traits, and what is an example of a primitive trait that primates share? What are derived traits, and what is an example of a derived trait in humans?(use examples that are not in the textbook) What does it mean that primitive and derived traits are relative terms?2.As the textbook states, “Primates are one of at least twenty Orders belonging to the Class Mammalia.” What are the characteristics that all mammals have in common? When thinking about these mammalian traits in primates, would they be considered primitive or derived traits? Explain your answer.3.What are generalized traits, and what is a specific example seen in primates? What are specialized traits, and what is a specific example seen in primates? (use examples that are not in the textbook)4.Describe the following characteristics of primates (from the textbook section “Primate Suite of Traits” and the slidecast):Vision/forward-facing eyes/postorbital bar/trichromatic and dichromaticBrain size/visual center/neocortexSmell and evolutionary trade-offsArboreal/3D environment/pentadactylyOpposable thumbs/toes and tactile padsLife historyBehavioral and ecological traits5.What is homodont v. heterodont dentition and what type of dentition do primates have? List and describe the tooth types found in the heterodont dentition. What is meant by the “dental” formula, and what is the dental formula ofhumans?6.If a scientist found a primate jawbone, would they be able to determine if the jawbone had belonged to a male or a female primate? Explain your answer.7.What do frugivores eat? Describe the characteristics of frugivorous primates. What do insectivores eat? Describe the characteristics of insectivorous primates. What do folivores eat? Describe the characteristics of folivorous primates.8.List and describe the different activity patterns that are explained in your textbook. Which one would you say applies to humans and why?9.Describe the different locomotor adaptations seen in primates (vertical clinging and leaping, quadrupedalism, brachiation, bipedalism). Briefly describe the skeletal adaptations associated with each of these locomotor patterns (except for bipedalism).10.Explain why humans have evolved a biological craving for sugar and why this craving can be harmful in modern environments (from the article on sugar).Millions and millions of years ago, apes survived on sugar-rich fruit. These animals evolved to like riper fruit because it had a higher sugar content than unripe fruit and therefore supplied more energy.”Sugar is a deep, deep ancient craving,” said Daniel Lieberman, an evolutionary biologist at Harvard University and author of “The Story the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and DiseaseAnd sugar offers more than just energy — it helps us store fat, too.When we eat table sugar, our bodies break this down into glucose and fructose. Importantly, fructose appears to activate processes in your body that make you want to hold on to fat, explains Richard Johnson, a professor in the department of medicine at the University of Colorado and author of “The Sugar Fix .” At a time when food was scarce and meals inconsistent — hunting is significantly less reliable than a drive-through — hanging on to fatwas an advantage, not a health risk.In a forthcoming paper, Johnson postulates that our earliest ancestors went through a period of significant starvation 15 million years ago in a time of global cooling. “During that time,” he said, “a mutation occurred” that increased the apelike creatures’ sensitivity to fructose so that even small amounts were stored as fat. This adaptation was a survival mechanism: Eat fructose and decrease the likelihood you will starve to death.The sweet taste was adaptive in other ways as well. In the brain, sugar stimulates the “feel-good” chemical dopamine. This euphoric response makes sense from an evolutionary perspective since our hunter-gatherer ancestors predisposed to “get hooked” on sugar probably had a better chance of survival (some scientists argue that sugar is an addictive drug”Imagine if someone hated sugar in the Paleolithic era,” said Lieberman. “Then they wouldn’t eat enough sugar or have enough energy and wouldn’t have children.”In other words, anything that made people more likely to eat sugar would also make them more likely to survive and pass along their genes.All the food challenges our prehistoric ancestors faced mean that biologically, we have trained ourselves to crave sweets. The problem today is that humans have too much of the sweet stuff available to them.”For millions of years, our cravings and digestive systems were exquisitely balanced because sugar was rare,” Lieberman wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times. “Apart from honey, most of the foods our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate were no sweeter than a carrot. The invention of farming made starchy foods more abundant, but it wasn’t until very recently that technology made pure sugar bountiful.”Weight gain was not a real risk when our instincts meant we might scarf down the nutritional equivalent of a carrot whenever we happened to stumble across one. Drinking soda all day — the contemporary equivalent — is a different story.Today, the average sugar intake in the U.S. is 22 teaspoons per person per day, which is four times the amount that the World Health Organization suggests is healthy. Eating too much sugar is linked to a laundry list of negative health effects, including diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.”We need to realize that our bodies are not adapted to the amount of sugar that we are pouring into them and it’s making us sick,” said LiebermanOriginal Link: https://www.businessinsider.com/evolutionary-reason-we-love-sugar-2014-4?r=US&IR=TYou will be graded using the following rubric:A  90-100%    Outstanding work with thorough, detailed, and clearly written answers

[SOLVED] Articulating Transferrable Skills

Articulating Transferrable Skills:In this exercise, we will begin by identifying transferable skills and translating anthropological concepts that you can apply to resumes, CVs, application letters, and an elevator pitch or speech.  An “elevator speech” is a short “pitch” that can be given immediately when a situation warrants.  In this case, it is an introduction to yourself and your interests in an anthropologically relevant way.  You will gear the speech to particular audiences at different times, but the bulk of it will remain the same most likely.  (for example I have a different one for film festivals than I have for academics).Objective: To think about and synthesize your anthropological learning these past years, and to articulate how and why this training is significant and useful to a wider public.Outcome: A list of transferrable skills and translated anthropological perspectives you can use in an elevator pitch or other conversation with non-specialist audiencesYou can think of this exercise in 2 parts:I.  Gather the Data:1. Begin by re-reading Omohundro’s (1998) Actions  piece on Career Advice for Anthropology Majors.2. Think about the skills and perspectives you’ve learned as an Anthropology Major.  To help with  this, think through the activities we did and topics we talked about in class, i.e. Anthropology student learning outcomes, ‘What does Anthropology Do”, and “What I did in Anthropology Class”. (shown in the screenshot named “class material”)3. Look at your own resume or CV, and see what kinds of skills you’ve developed over time both inside and outside of class.II.  Articulate Your Ideas:1. Based upon Omohundro’s list of transferable skills, identify 3-4 that most closely align with your own experiences and future goals.  List the skills.2. For each skill you’ve listed, give at least two specific, detailed examples of fieldwork, labwork, or coursework that illustrate your training and capacity in that particular skill.  Some skills may draw from the same experience (eg. archaeology field school), but different aspects and activities will be used to substantiate each skill set.3. Next, pick three of the following Anthropological frameworks (or use one of your own) that best fit within your skill set and your future goals:  holism, intercultural competence, biocultural change, empiricism, relativism & power, anti-ethnocentrism.4. Then, for each anthropological framework you’ve listed, think about how you could explain its importance and meaning to a prospective employer, grad school, or funder with a story.    The story is crucial, and one of the best ways to explain complex anthropology paradigms to non-specialists.  You have two choices.  You can either:Provide a hypothetical scenario (“Imagine a world where”, your dream job, etc) in which these skills would be crucial;Provide a concrete example from your own experiences that illustrate the concepts and their application.The Short Activities Rubric will be used to grade this exercise.1. Anthropological Perspectives (1) Exhibits awareness and understanding of ethnocentrism, cultural relativity, contexts, and power in all activities;2. Course Concepts & Examples (1) Directly and appropriately utilizes course terminology in all writing and activities; Describes and utilizes appropriate examples from course materials (readings, films, individual fieldwork, media sources);3. Follows Instructions & Puts in Effort (3)  Is this a compare/contrast discussion?  Did you find outside sources if required?  Were you supposed to upload an image?  Follow the directions!!  And put in some effort.
