Please note that you are not required to use the causes above. Rather feel free to write on the causes of obesity that your literature search reveals, which could include some or all of the causes mentioned above.
Your paper will be evaluated using the rubric provided in LiveText.
Your work must be submitted via both MOODLE and LiveText.
Obesity, to a large extent, is an avoidable condition that leads to a number of avoidable diseases: hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.
What I find interesting is a recent survey that shows twice as many people in the United States are concerned about the fat content of their diets as they are about the total number of calories consumed. This line of thinking leads to obesity no matter what food is eaten.
While many people may scrupulously avoid fats, meats or alcohol, they will consume large amounts of other foods. Or they will buy foods that read “Fat Free” on the label. That huge bowl of pasta, for example, or that fat-free cake or sweetened cereal may not have much fat, but each is loaded with calories. Excess calories that are not burned off through physical exercise cause weight gain.
The conclusion is overweight people should eat less and exercise more.

Sociology 1001 Discussion

This perspective represents a “personal trouble.”The sociological imagination incorporates the societal experience of COVID-19, including the loss of jobs, the closing of businesses and schools, and the cancelling of public events.
These examples represent the effects of the virus on the individual level and that of the larger society, broadening the impact of the virus from a “personal trouble” to a “public issue.”
For this Discussion, you will consider a social issue of interest to you; what the issue “looks like” within society; and in what ways it is a “personal trouble” and “public issue.”
By Day 3
Post at least a 2-paragraph response to the following prompts:
Consider a social issue that interests you and describe the social issue you selected.
Using your sociological imagination, describe what the social issue “looks like” within society.
Explain in what ways the social issue is a “personal problem” and a “public issue.”

Application of Feminist Theory to a Case Study

 In 1 to 2 sentences, explain how feminist theory you are utilizing defines and
explains the cause of the problem.
 In 1 to 2 sentences, use feminist theory to describe the role of the social worker
to facilitate change in the case study.
 In the assessment phase, identify 2 assessment questions you will ask to explore
what the client’s goals are and how they will get there. Remember, feminist theory should be driving the assessment.
 Describe two interventions to address the problem and explain how the clients
will implement the interventions. Remember, feminist theory should be driving the interventions.
 In 2 to 3 sentences, discuss how you would evaluate if one of the interventions
you identified is effective with the client.
 Explain how, specifically, you will set the tone throughout your work with the
client to reduce the hierarchical relationship and make it more collaborative.
 Evaluate one strength and one limitation of feminist theory in working with the
client.
Be sure to:
 Identify and correctly reference the case study you have chosen.
 Speak clearly.

Nova Science Now – Alzheimers and memory HD
Second Discussion Post- Answer the following prompt
This week we learned about unruly bodies, bodies that do not adhere to Western beauty and health ideals. Reflecting on the following reading “Who Gets to be Fit?” (Links to an external site.)and our other readings this week do the following assignment:
Since the beginning of shelter-in-place, you have probably seen numerous ads for gyms, diets, and exercise equipment to help you lose weight or maintain your size at home . For this assignment, you will conduct three google image searches: one will be for “fit woman,” another will be for “wellness,” and the last will be for “women’s health magazine.”
Use the reading to discuss: According to these images, what does it mean to be a fit, well, and healthy woman? What kinds of assumptions are being made about fitness, wellness, and health in these images that might marginalize women of color? Is there space for wellness for disabled bodies represented? What might an intersectional approach to fitness help us understand about how women of color perceive their bodies and what it means to be “healthy” and “fit”?
-Reference readings for this discussion post that are attached as well!!!

604 Week 10: Weber, Economy

Written memos should be 2-3 single-spaced pages, 12-point font. Your memo should discuss topics or questions arising from the week’s reading. You might pull out specific passages to comment on or pull out what you see as a key concept, idea, or argument from the reading. These are thought pieces – they should be coherent, but they are not polished papers. You should end your memo by proposing at least one question for contemplation/discussion.*
Legitimate domination

Sex, Gender, and Sexuality Question

Part 1: Define and differentiate between sex, gender, and sexuality.
Part 2: Distinguish between transgender, transsexual, intersexual, and homosexual identities.
Part 3: Throughout history we as American’s, as well as many other countries; subscribe to dominance – a dominant gender, (male) a dominant race,(caucasian) and now a dominant sexuality (heterosexual). However, some Indigenous North Americans embraced and found it to be of high honor to be ‘two-spirited.’ What does that mean and how would that make a difference for acceptance and inclusion for our own culture if we shared those views today?
Your submission should be 700-800 words minimum.

you’re discussing! My answer :
The most significant insightful idea is that most new studies in sociology are conducted due to criticism of an original claim. Critical thinking is necessary for determining the evidence produced to support different sociological perspectives based on rationale, pattern, causality, and precedence (Best, 2021, p. 40). Explanations and their challenges must be evaluated to provide evidence and hold both to similarly high standards. The author states that “In discussions among scientists, challenges must be subject to the same sorts of evaluations as the arguments being challenged. That is, we expect both those offering explanations and those challenging them to support their claims with evidence, and all that evidence must be weighed and judged (Best, 2021, p. 43)”. Various social science claims receive criticism from within or outside, which may be triggered by limitations that affect research results. I have learned that criticism of original claims leads to new research being conducted to either replicate the first study or use different procedures to determine if the original techniques may have shaped the findings. The best available evidence for sociology and social sciences is subject to critical evaluation and critical thinking (Best, 2021, p. 45). The idea is significant because it helps me understand how new research is established and the importance of criticism to a study. From the readings, what has been challenging to understand is the tragedy and comedy section. What makes it possible for sociologists to view their research in tragic terms and not in a comical way? The research should not focus on the plights of the individuals but can rely on their abilities which can be used to improve their lives. Therefore, the inclination of many researchers towards pessimism needs to be expounded further. How can we differentiate research from being pessimistic or optimistic? I want to explore the perspectives of pessimists and optimists further to understand the two better.ReferencesBest, J. (2021). Is that true?: Critical thinking for sociologists. University of California Press.
My classmates posts: 1- Ailin Martinez-Vela As I was reading chapters 5 through 7 of Is that True? I came across an idea that was insightful to me. Joel Best claims that “It is more challenging to recognize our own culture; being immersed in it, we simply assume that our understanding of the world is correct, normal, sensible” (2021, p.79). This stood out to me because it is important to be aware of our own culture because it helps us from projecting our own values and morals onto others. Learning about other cultures helps us understand other perspective within the world. It helps us minimize stereotypes about groups in society. It is easy to get lost in our own world and forget that there is much more than what we are aware of. This statement is significant to the study of social world because being aware of cultural differences allows sociologist to “rely on comparisons”. This allows us to understand how we all play a role in society (Best, 2021, pg.79).
2- Kenia Tijera :One idea that was very interesting to me was the culture and social structure paragraphs and the points that the author gives us in order to look for evidence and get the facts about any information we have for the research. “It makes more sense to weight the evidence to determine when and how culture and social structure have an impact” (p.68). The explanations are very helpful to understand some points for example, why we need to have evidence if we want to have a reliable research instead of our opinions that will shape the results of the research differently. One thing that makes sense but did not really understand why is the peer reviewed articles only reviewed by the associations from that same school.
For your TWO peer replies, engage with the author by elaborating, comparing or contrasting, sharing counterpoints, or drawing connections to specific course concepts. This is an opportunity to demonstrate critical thinking, so avoid simplistic replies that mainly repeat Best’s or your classmate’s contributions (e.g. “I agree” or restating the author’s ideas). Try to bring something new, insightful, or provocative to the discussion! You want to further the conversation by adding new ideas, information, or perspectives. It’s OK to play “devil’s advocate”, just let others know so we’re all on the same page. Be sure to use in-text citations when appropriate and page numbers so others can easily find the passages you’re discussing!
