Purpose
Introduction
In this assignment you will use online resources to become more familiar with the concept of the Ecological Footprint. You will be asked to calculate your Footprint, make comparisons between the United States and other countries, and estimate what your future Footprint might be.
Background
The following excerpt was taken from the Global Footprint Network website, the same site that you will use to complete this assignment.
Ecological Footprint Definition: “Ecological Footprint accounting measures the demand on and supply of nature. On the demand side, the Ecological Footprint measures the ecological assets that a given population requires to produce the natural resources it consumes (including plant-based food and fiber products, livestock and fish products, timber and other forest products, space for urban infrastructure) and to absorb its waste, especially carbon emissions. The Ecological Footprint tracks the use of six categories of productive surface areas: cropland, grazing land, fishing grounds, built-up land, forest area, and carbon demand on land. On the supply side, a city, state or nations biocapacity represents the productivity of its ecological assets (including cropland, grazing land, forest land, fishing grounds, and built-up land). These areas, especially if left unharvested, can also absorb much of the waste we generate, especially our carbon emissions. Both the Ecological Footprint and biocapacity are expressed in global hectares—globally comparable, standardized hectares with world average productivity. Each city, state or nation’s Ecological Footprint can be compared to its biocapacity. If a population’s Ecological Footprint exceeds the region’s biocapacity, that region runs an ecological deficit. Its demand for the goods and services that its land and seas can provide—fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, wood, cotton for clothing, and carbon dioxide absorption—exceeds what the region’s ecosystems can renew. A region in ecological deficit meets demand by importing, liquidating its own ecological assets (such as overfishing), and/or emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. If a region’s biocapacity exceeds its Ecological Footprint, it has an ecological reserve. Conceived in 1990 by Mathis Wackernagel and William Rees at the University of British Columbia, the Ecological Footprint launched the broader Footprint movement, including the carbon Footprint, and is now widely used by scientists, businesses, governments, individuals, and institutions working to monitor ecological resource use and advance sustainable development.”

Task
Using the Global Footprint Network website you will complete a set of tasks and answer a set of questions (below (Ecological Footprint Template) related to your own ecological footprint. When complete, please submit to this appropriate drop box.
**Please note…you may see a DONATE button or banner on this website. You do NOT have to donate to utilize this site for this assignment.
To get started, watch this short video on the Global Footprint Network.
Ecological Footprint Template
Using this link, click on the United States and record the following for the most current year available:
Biocapacity per person:
Ecological Footprint per person:
Biocapacity Reserve (+)/ Deficit (-):
Choose any other county and repeat
Country chosen:
Biocapacity per person:
Ecological Footprint per person:
Biocapacity Reserve (+)/ Deficit (-):
How did the country that you selected compare to the US with respect to the values? What factors do you think influenced your findings?
Using this link, enter in your personal information and calculate your own ecological footprint.
If everyone lived like you, how many Earth’s would we need?
What is your ecological footprint in global hectares?
What is your carbon footprint (CO2 emissions in tons per year)
What is your carbon footprint (P% of your total ecological footprint)
Using this link investigate the state of the nation and the “the state of the states” by examining the chart that outlines the ecological wealth of the United States and answering the following questions:
How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the United States?
Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and the USA average
How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the state in which you live?
Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and your state
Choose another state. How does your ecological footprint compare to that of the chosen state? (Be sure to list the state that you chose)
Suggest possible reasons for the differences between your own footprint and your chosen state
Summary Question: To summarize the experience of examining the ecological impact of your own county, state and personal impact, please address the following reflection questions:
What is your reaction to your own ecological footprint? Were you surprised? Was it higher or lower than you expected? Summarize your feelings and thoughts about the experience of determining your own environmental impact.
What is your reaction to your state and nation? Were you surprised? Was it higher or lower than you expected? Summarize your feelings and thoughts about the experience of determining the environmental impact of your state and your country on the world.
What (if anything) do you think people should do? Should people attempt to reduce their ecological footprints and impact on the environment? Why or why not? If you do feel that they should; what are some ways that humans could curb their consumption? If you do not feel that humans should attempt to reduce their impact on the environment, explain.
Criteria

Overview
Scientists use a variety of methods and approaches to collect and analyze data. The methods they choose depend on the questions they are interested in answering. For example, volcanologists might ask a research question such as, how do we predict when volcanic eruptions will occur? To answer that question, they might use a variety of tools such as thermal imagers, seismic monitors, and satellites. In addition to collecting data from these instruments, they may also conduct field research to gather samples of rocks, gas, and ash. In this activity, you will identify a scientific approach used by scientists to study the topic of your chosen news story and draft research questions about it.
Prompt
To complete this activity, use the Module Two Activity Template Word Document. First, examine your scientific news story for descriiptions of how the research was conducted. This might be a general descriiption of steps the scientists took, or the specific methods used to collect and analyze evidence. Look for words associated with the scientific method such as observations, hypothesis, field research, experiments, lab research, or data collection.
Next, consider the questions you have about the main idea presented in your scientific news story. What do you want to know more about? What answers or solutions might benefit you or your community? Draft two research questions you are interested in asking. As you write your questions, consult the module overview and module resources for assistance writing your research questions.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Part One: Identifying Scientific Approaches
Identify an approach to scientific research addressed in the chosen news story.
Part Two: Drafting Good Scientific Questions
Draft two research questions you are interested in asking about the main idea of your news story. Ensure that both of your questions are measurable and focused.
Prepare measurable scientific questions based on the main idea presented in the chosen news story.
Prepare focused scientific questions based on the main idea presented in the chosen news story.
Guidelines for Submission
Submit your completed Module Two Activity Template. While not required, any sources should be cited using APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.

Risk Assessment and Management Prepare a consulting report using the Unit IV Pro

Risk Assessment and Management
Prepare a consulting report using the Unit IV Project Report template, which provides the following information:
Part I: List and discuss the five steps to risk assessment and management.
Part II: Conduct a before and after qualitative risk assessment to determine the risk level, based on the following information:
Spillage of the product along the walkway of a conveyor belt in an area creates a significant slip and trip hazard, especially when it rains (as there are significant leaks in the product shed). This area is occupied on average by three employees per shift, which must pass through this area at least twice a day. The most likely consequence could be a significant strain or sprain to the extremities, including potential permanent lumbar injuries. One option to reduce or eliminate the risk is barricading the area and providing a secondary path. The secondary path would require employees to travel to the upper level, across, and back down to this level, thus creating an additional travel time of 10 minutes each way (twice per day). Explain your reasoning why you chose the severity and probability ratings.
Part III: Using the same information in Part II, complete a before and after quantitative risk assessment using the Unit IV Project spreadsheet.
Part IV: To eliminate the condition of spillage along the conveyor belt identified in Part II and III, a permanent solution would be to replace the current 24” belt with a 48” belt. To do this, all rollers, framing, belt, and guards must be replaced at $235,000. (Note: Some of this cost can be recovered by preventing lost product, but this does not factor into the cost justification process.) Once completed, this project will reduce the risk by 42%. Then, using the William Fine method, calculate the risk score and J-value and determine:
whether the cost to correct a hazard is justified and
how quickly the hazard should be corrected.
Ensure you show your equations and all work for determining answers for parts II through IV in the project document. You may either formulate the scenario equations using the Word equation formula toolbar or write and solve your equations with answers on a separate paper. Then, take a screenshot of your work for each scenario using your phone or similar device and insert it as an image in the document. Make sure your image is clear and legible to read.
No references are required for this assignment; however, if outside sources are used, please adhere to APA Style when creating citations and references.

The digestive system plays a critical role in how our body takes in and processe

The digestive system plays a critical role in how our body takes in and processes food. Organs of the digestive system are usually referred to as “your gut.” It is also the beginning of the process in which our body receives nourishment. Understanding this process can be helpful when communicating with patients or when analyzing charts for assigning the correct medical codes. If you had to explain the point at which the digestive process actually begins and one related disease or disorder, how would you describe it? Be sure to use your medical terms!
