Your commentaries are your chance to engage meaningfully with the readings, raise important questions, and point to issues that you found exciting, engaging, or challenging. You should be able to post these commentaries on BB where I have already created weekly forums for the semester. Your TAs will read these closely and give you a check plus, check, check minus grade. All these individual grades will add up to a cumulative grade at the end of class.
Check plus work:
The student demonstrates that they have read the text carefully by referring to at least two key ideas from the readings.
The students demonstrate that they have made connections between readings/film/podcast assigned for that day.
The students will bring up one or two larger analytical points that the week’s readings/films etc. raise for us. So questions to consider: How might the readings help you understand/engage with contemporary events of local or global significance?
Check work:

Does the source contain bias without evidence to back up the claims?

THIS PAPER should not be more about marijuana, etc it should be a paper assessing the accuracy of information about drugs on the internet. Remember, the paper is not about the drug, but a critical look at how the internet provides information about drugs. So, you should write in that context. That should be the main focus of your paper.
These days, many people use the internet for their sources of information on drugs. However, many internet sites don’t always have the most objective or valid information. Some websites may have a particular agenda (such as promoting the legalization of drugs, or supporting a stronger War on Drugs), and therefore use selective bias in their information. Others may be written by non-experts who are simply giving their opinion without substantiating their claims. In some cases it may be hard to tell if the information you are reading was written by an expert on substance abuse issues who works in a drug research center, or a high school student writing a blog in their parent’s basement.
For your assignment you need to select one illegal drug (i.e., marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, etc.), and compare and contrast two different websites that give information about that drug. You first need to compare the information on each site. Then you need to critically analyze the information on each site in terms of its validity and objectivity. In order to do that you should address the following points in your comparison.
What is the purpose and affiliation of the organization or author of the website?
What are the author’s credentials?
Is the information current?
When was the information last updated?
Does the source contain bias without evidence to back up the claims?
Finally, you need to discuss which website you find more credible and why. One good way to justify your choice is to cross-reference the information on the websites with another type of source that is known to be credible – such as a peer reviewed journal article that you found on an academic database at the John Jay Library. Generally, peer reviewed articles are considered more credible because they have been checked for validity issues prior to being published. Therefore, if your websites contain information that can also be found in a peer-reviewed research article, it gives it more credibility. In other words, for this assignment, you not only have to compare the two websites, but should also find a few academic articles to cross reference the information with.
Make sure to reference any direct quotes and to include a reference list at the end of the paper listing the websites and journal articles you used.

Do they have data available online?

ANTH 1102 Instructor: Jason González ] Archaeology Project: Website Archaeology Introduction: You recently graduated from the University of Georgia, Department of Anthropology with a certificate in Archaeology. You find a job with the Archaeology Conservancy in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Conservancy has been acquiring and protecting archaeological sites in the United States for nearly 30 years. They have been very successful and are now ready to expand their mission on a more global scale looking at archaeological resources the world over. Their intention is to protect the heritage of disenfranchised peoples, protect human history, and further the scientific goal of understanding the human past. They have hired you to help expand their understanding of various archaeological projects in the United States and throughout the world. They are looking for new sites and locations that need protection and long term research potential. They need you to do independent research on how various archaeological projects organize their work in terms of research design, community outreach, public education, and heritage protection. Fortunately, many projects have websites, which describe what their research entails and how projects are organized. The assignment: Write a report reviewing at least 3 different archaeological projects from around the world. Below is a list of websites with several potential archaeological projects to look at. You must review at least 3 projects, but you may use more (remember to stay under the 6 page limit). You may also search the internet for different sites from the ones listed below. Your report should start with a quick overview of each project. You will then need to address the questions and topics that are listed below. These questions are intended to help you start the writing process. You are more than welcome to discuss issues that go beyond the questions presented here. In addition, you will need to use your text book and your notes when appropriate. To help the Conservancy, your outcome will be to use your analysis to rank the archaeological projects in terms of quality of work, potential for public use, threatened nature, and heritage importance. Potential archaeological project websites: http://www.caracol.org/ http://www.iklaina.org/ http://www.viking.ucla.edu/mosfell_project/index.html https://singermoye.com/ http://www.catalhoyuk.com/ http://www.rimap.org/SitePages/Home.aspx
http://sydney.edu.au/museums/research/paphos-theatre.shtml http://www.bvar.org/ 2 Research Design: 1. What are the research questions of the archaeological project? If they y have no questions, what is the intended purpose of the archaeological project? 2. Do the research questions have definite goals? Are these goals achievable in the shortrun or are they more representative of long term research desires? Are you unable to assess these issues? 3. How do they present their data? Do they describe their methods and techniques (in other words do they describe how they are digging)? 4. Does the project have a concern for publication? Do they have data available online? Do they provide a list of project publications? Community Outreach: 1. Does the project discuss any interaction with local communities where the archaeological project is? 2. Do they have any structured programs to interact with the local community? 3. If not, do they instead involve governmental institutions? Do they collaborate with local archaeologists or scholars? 4. If not, why do you think they have no interaction with local communities? Public Education: 1. Does this project have a component that attempts to get information out to an audience that is greater than the academic community (This can include the website itself)? 2. Do they offer programs for students to learn archaeological methods and techniques? If yes, what does this educational component entail? Do they offer credit from an accredited university? If yes, how much credit and what is the cost? What is the
purpose of this educational program? 3. Do they offer opportunities for “amateur” volunteers to participate in an archaeological project? Are these free opportunities or do people have to pay for the chance to work with archaeologists? What do you think about this? 4. Who is the intended audience of the website? What is the purpose of the project website, and what do you think the website authors hope to get from it? Why? Heritage Protection: 1. Does the project have a concern for protecting the archaeological resources they have or will have uncovered? 2. Do they have a program that is intended to protect the archaeological site from looting, development, destruction, etc? 3 3. Or, is the project itself a salvage program in that they are trying to recover as much information as possible from an archaeological site that will inevitably be destroyed? 4. If they are protecting the site, why are they trying to protect the site and for whom? For Final Thoughts: 1. What can you say about all of these projects as a whole? 2. What does your analysis say about the purpose of archaeological research, the long term intentions of archaeological research and the potential for long term protection of cultural heritage? How or how not is archaeological research like this important to you and local communities? Structure of the report: Your first paragraph should be an introduction to the website project, discussing the point of the paper and preliminary statement of your conclusions. Then you should cover all of the above questions and topics for the assignment in a logical order. Feel free to expand beyond these questions but you must answer everything included here. You should end your analysis and review by using the data to ranking the archaeological project websites by the four criteria given to you. In your paper you must refer to class information and the textbook in your analysis. End the project with a conclusion, summarizing the conclusions and the reasons behind them. This project report is to be four to six pages of typed text, margins no larger or smaller than one inch, double-spaced with no extra spaces between paragraphs, and use one of only these three fonts: 12 pt Times New Roman, 11 pt Calibri, or 10 pt Arial. If you include title page, maps, images, graphs, etc., these do not count toward the final page total. You must address all of the above questions and prompts, and you must refer to the class notes and textbook. Furthermore, citations are required internally as well as a works cited page. You will lose points if any of these directions are not followed. You should look at the grading rubric to know exactly how the points will be distributed. I expect this report to be written in a scholarly manner. Therefore, I expect complete sentences, correct spelling, proper grammar, appropriate research paper organization, and a high standard of readability. A large portion of your grade will be about your writing

Answer must be unique.

Before starting the observation, Follow the directions on the sheet. I have attached it here. Answer must be unique.
Observe a group of primates online at the Zoo. Navigate to one of the Zoo primate cams. You can choose the Baboon Cam(Hamadryas and Gelada baboons) or the Ape Cam(Orangutans and Siamang apes). Obviously, make sure that animals are actually visible for viewing at the time you are watching; otherwise, come back later and try again. The cams broadcast live during daylight hours; at night they re-broadcast the previous day’s footage.

Describe the perspectives you have chosen and why you think they are the most relevant ones to use in your analysis of the body.

In standard essay format, answer BOTH of the following questions.
Each of your two essays must be typed, double-spaced, in 12-point font. Use course readings, lectures, and films to answer the questions (you may also supplement with additional sources if you wish, but this is not expected). Include a bibliography for each question, of all readings and films cited. References for course readings are listed in the course outline (in APA format). Films can be referenced similarly to books/articles using the format: (The Making of Lissa: 2017) in the text, and a brief citation with the title and year included in the bibliography. The main films are listed for you, below, in this format. You may treat lecture information as ‘common knowledge’ and omit a formal citation. You will be penalized if your total text (not including bibliography) is less than 5 pages or more than 9 pages between the two questions.
1. Answer this question in 4-5 pages (excluding bibliography): 25 points
Brown and Closser (2016) describe seven perspectives (or approaches/orientations) in medical anthropology. Choose at least TWO of these perspectives and apply them to an anthropology of the body. (Think about week 4 here, we discussed how anthropology understands the body as something that is socially, culturally, and politically constructed. An “anthropology of the body” is an analysis of how a given belief about the body is socially, culturally, and politically constructed). Describe the perspectives you have chosen and why you think they are the most relevant ones to use in your analysis of the body. Then, apply these perspectives to explain how bodies have been viewed and treated in different cultural and historical contexts.
2. Answer this question in 2-3 pages (excluding bibliography): 15 points
Define the concepts of “illness”, “sickness”, and “suffering” and how they differ from the concept of “disease” (as discussed in Week 5). Then use examples from readings and films to illustrate why it is important to understand people’s experiences of “illness”, “sickness”, and “suffering” to understand how their illness affects them, their health behaviour, and/or their interactions with the health care system.

UN Convention or from an international nongovernmental organization. This is then
followed by a discussion of the scope of the problem (global statistics on how
widespread the problem is – is it more pronounced in certain countries, regions, across
regions, etc.). The global view and understanding of the problem (ie. Is there
international recognition of the problem? Is it universally or generally regarded as a
problem? Are there additional internationbcial conventions addressing the problem?)
