[SOLVED] Informal Housing in the United States

The final paper should be roughly 10 pages in length, double spaced, Times New Roman, blah blah blah. It can be longer if you need it to be, but I don’t want to read padding. If it’s much shorter you probably didn’t include everything.Here’s what it should look like:I. Introduction: Let me know what question your research is designed to answer and why it is important. Give me enough background in terms of context and literature that I know you know about your topic (a formal literature review is not required but given some sense that you’re familiar with the academic literature).2. Methods Proposal: This is the bulk of the assignment. Throughout, I want you to be thoughtful and precise. Cite methodological literature that we read for class (or that you found on your own). But also show that you’re anticipating the challenges using your smartness.Remember you are not expected to do the methods you propose for this class. You can propose something that costs money you don’t have with a timeline you can’t hit (but keep it reasonable).2.1 Epistemological Perspective: State precisely your epistemological stance. Are you operating from a western rationalist perspective? A feminist perspective? A Hawaiian perspective? A Christian theological perspective? A critical race theory perspective? A post-colonial perspective? A Marxist-Hegelian perspective?Note that any of these are valid choices but you need to show you know what you’re talking about (aka cite sources, explain what it means, and don’t be superficial). Note also that being a feminist, a leftist, an anti-racist, a Christian, Hawaiian, etc. does not necessarily mean your research will be from that perspective. Even though much as what we’ve read recently has defined itself in opposition to a western rationalist approach, that does not mean that a western rationalist approach is not valid (it is simply not everything). I personally work from a Western rationalist epistemology, as do most planners.2.2 Sampling: Remember that we defined sampling as “what is included vs. that which is left out.” It thus applies to all research methods. Talk about your approach to sampling. Who/what is included? How will you access those people? How will you incentivize them to participate (if you’re sampling people)? Convince me your choices are appropriate.What are the implications of this approach? What might you not see? What might you see too much of? To what will your research be generalizable? Is generalizability your goal?2.3 Data Collection Procedure: Talk about how you will collect your data. If you’re doing interviews, provide an interview guide. If you’re doing text analysis, provide a codebook. If you’re doing ethnography, describe your approach to writing fieldnotes. If you’re doing comparative case study research, describe how you will access data on your cases.Also talk about your approach. How will you conduct your interviews? How will you conduct your observations? And so forth.2.4 Analytic Approach: How will you analyze your data? Discuss the approach you will take. This will be more technical than anything you’d write in a publishable paper, but I want you to think through the process of analysis. Is there software you will use? If you’re using an inductive process, how will you implement it?2.5 Positionality Statement: State what your positionality is (your identity, background, etc.). Then state how that positionality will impact your research. How will it impact how your research subjects relate to you? What will it give you access to? What will it prevent you from accessing? How will it impact how you interpret the data you collect?Your positionality is dimensionally infinite. Think about which dimensions are relevant. You are not required to disclose portions of your positionality that you are not comfortable with me knowing.2.6 Ethics: Describe any ethical concerns related to your research (there will be some). Harm, disclosure, confidentiality, deception, coercion, etc. Will you share your findings with your subjects? How will you leave the field?3. Anticipated Challenges: What do you think are the biggest threats to the plan you have proposed? How will you adjust to adapt if these issues occur?

[SOLVED] Ethical Issues in Hybrid and Autonomous Vehicles

CpE 481 Assignment – Due: February 26Ethical Issues in Hybrid and Autonomous VehiclesFor this assignment, you will select a topic associated with hyrbrid autonomous vehicles and ethics andwrite a brief (3-4 page) report.Some possible topics might include:• Design of Driving Algorithm for Emergency Situations. As drivers, all of us hope a situation likethis never arises. What if apedestrian walks directly in front of our vehicle? Hitting apedestrian likely has severe consequences but alternatives might put ourselves and passengersat risk of great bodily injury. Such choices are weighty when they fall on individual humans, butwhat are the ethical dilemmas at arise when we are designing an algorithm that controls thevehicle and makes choices for such situations? What are our responsibilities as an engineer?• Tradeoff of energy efficiency versus safety. A hybrid vehicle offers many possibilities forimproving fuel consumption efficiency which benefits both the individual user and society ingeneral. However, some of methods for fuel efficiency may involve safety considerations. Forexample, allowing a vehicle that is slowing to a stop to come closer to the lead vehicle in frontmay allow for more gradual deceleration and greater fuel efficiency, but also may allow smallersafety margin. How should such tradeoffs be resolved?• Privacy of individual movement data. V2X communications will inherently collect a great dealof user-specific information on an individual’s movements. What information should be usedand for what purposes? It seems reasonable to use metadata to devise more efficient trafficrouting which speeds overall throughput? But what if you have the choice between optimizingoverall traffic throughput vs. an individuals time to their destination? Should information beused to steer an individual on a route where past history indicates they have favoredrestaurants and stores? Should user preferences be shared with third party marketers?• Optimal design of autonomous systems for safety versus efficiency tradeoffs. Is safety theoverriding concern in design of autonomous vehicle safety or do other factors like economy andfuel efficiency play a role also? Adding more sensors might make a vehicle system safer butalso might push the vehicle price past what is affordable by most potential users. Allowingshorter spacing between vehicles may improve fuel efficiency in some instances, but might alsoslightly elevate safety risks? What tradeoffs are ethical and in keeping with our responsabilitiesas engineers?These are just a few of the possible topics. You may pick one of these, or another one of your choosing.Dr. Woerner is available to help advise you on your choice of topic. Full credit will be given for papersthat relate the problem to the EcoCAR project.Your paper should:• Clearly state the ethical problem or dilemma consider.• Cite the relevant sections of one or more professional Codes of Ethics (e.g., IEEE, ACM, SAE,NSPE) and apply the guidance from these codes to the problem considered.• Cite one or more outside references (books, journal, magazine or conference papers) whichconsider the problem and discuss the information learned.• Present a clear analysis of the tradeoffs involved in the ethical problem, considering all points ofview.• Propose a solution to the problem presented, and justify your solution with support from ethicalcodes, your research and reasoning.The paper should be written in complete sentences using proper grammar. References should be clearlycited, and directly quoted material should be clearly identified by quotes or indentation.We will provide the Turnitin tool on eCampus for this assignment. The Turnitin settings allow you to runan analysis of your own paper, and if necessary, resubmit the paper after corrections.

[SOLVED] Yuan Plays and Shakespeare Plays

I need an analytical/research paper written for me for my theatre class. In this essay, I am required to write 4-5 pages comparing and contrasting the culture/themes between the Yuan plays and Shakespeare plays. I need a solid and arguable thesis. The Shakespeare play that would be used is Othello and the Yuan play would be Autumn in Han Palace, 189-224. A topic or theme they both have in common is the agency given to women in these plays or how each playwright treats the idea of honor. We had different essay options to write and these are the instructions for the one that I selected:Option #1: Two CulturesChoose two dramatic works, playwrights or performance types/techniques from two distinctlydifferent cultures to analyze. Your analysis will compare and contrast one to the other, bylooking at similarities and differences between the two. Ultimately, what conclusions can youdraw about culture in comparing these side by side? Please use examples and textualevidence from the plays you are discussing in order to backup your analysis, but do not retellthe story of the play. You may use a play (or plays) we have read or will read, though youmust use research that goes beyond what we have studied in class. You also may chooseplays or playwrights we have not studied.below I included the pdf of the instructions for the entire essay. the prompt I chose is option 1.

[SOLVED] Smart Technologies

We need to design a system for traffic congestion / smart parking that the input is at least three to four sensors. Choosing the sensors are very important from cost, installation, maintenance, performance, weather, and so on.  Data acquisition is the next step, we need to know the output signal characteristics to design the correct one. We need one data acquisition for many sensors it is called multiplexing. Then we need to design the processing unit and communication. Focus on characteristics for the sensor. I am living in Seattle USA so I see the below sensors are suitable according to task 2.2 that I will attach. Please if you have a new list for 2015 and above for sensors costs please update it for me in task 2.2 in the table. I put it for 1999. I am trying to use  traffic/video camera with a video image processor (first sensor) The second sensor is the Microwave radar sensor. The third one is the electrochemical sensor to measure the gases. The fourth one is GPS or Bluetooth to measure the travel time, and delay. The microcontroller is the best I think for processing units with Arduino microcontrollers because it is easier one.  In the second proposal, Smart parking can use a camera sensor and maybe an ultrasonic and electrochemical sensor. Please find the attached assignment and formatting required.

[SOLVED] Urban Studies

SHORT ANSWERS (4 @ 10 points = 40%) Pick four out of ten questions listed below. For each question be sure to include reference to at least two required readings in USP2. See instructions at the end of this study guide spelling out how we want you to handle references in the body of your short answers and as a bibliographic entry at the tail end of your short answer. Your reference to the reading should say something about this author’s or organization’s contribution to the subject matter posed in question (i.e., weave it into your brief narrative). Each short answer should be approximately 350-500 words, not including the bibliography.1.No matter what political perspective colors one’s analysis, planetary urbanization taking place in the 21st century can be viewed as having five fundamental features (as spelled out in USP2 lectures). Briefly list each one with an example noting how it impacts cities in some way that you find particularly hopeful or disturbing.2.List and describe one of the global megatrends that is driving urban-ecological “localization” (e.g., local greening of the economy, local sourcing of food-energy water systems, greening of infrastructure thru restorative closed-loop development). In your description of the global megatrend be sure to give a sense of its magnitude and ways in which it has begun to drive localization.3.As discussed in USP2 lectures and readings, what point does the shift “[From D–>E, to E–>D]” mean?  How has this shift in the way we think about development and the environment influenced urban and regional planning? Give an example.4.On average over the past decade, cities in the less developed regions have been at higher risk of exposure to natural disasters and more vulnerable to disaster-related economic losses and mortality than those in the more developed regions. Briefly explain why this is the case with an example.5. David Wallace-Wells’s article, “The Uninhabitable Earth,” describes several ways in which climate change threatens humanity. Describe one of them and suggest, based on readings in USP 2 what we might be able to do to reduce this existential threat.6.Considering what you’ve learned about informal settlements on the outskirts of Mexico City, explain how these informal settlements blur the urban-rural distinction. Is there something about informal settlement processes in developing countries that may be useful in more developed countries?7.Suggest ways in which we can improve community-university relationships, especially with respect to democratizing science and technology, for instance how S&T priorities are set, how S&T gets developed, used and/or evaluated.8.Globally, urban spread (the urban footprint) on the face of the planet is increasing faster than population. Why does this matter and what can be done about it?9.In Pezzoli, K. and A. Leiter Robert (2016). “Creating healthy and just bioregions. The authors spell out an “Integrated Planning Framework” to deal with the arguments made by Sennett et al (2018) calling for planning and design to operate at both metropolitan and neighborhood scale (section 2.4). How so, explain the Integrated Planning Framework, including the idea of green regionalism.10.Consider what you have learned about the Colonia Ecológica Productiva of Ajusco in Mexico City. Describe the Colonia Ecológica Productiva  using at least three key terms from the course. What lessons can be drawn from this experience in terms of the challenges and possibilities for a new kind of urban development?
