What can people do to decrease the activity/product’s impact on the environment?

Instructions
Human Impact on Climate Change PowerPointIn this unit, we learned about several ways in which our everyday actions impact the environment. Choose an action to research further and create a PowerPoint presentation to explain more! Use the unit material and reliable online resources (see below) to gather more information.There are many ideas and much information within Unit VIII on which to base your presentation, but there is even more information out in the world! Think about what you do every day, and how the activity uses energy or natural resources. Think about a product you buy—how it was made, what natural resources were used to make it? You can also do a quick Google search of “everyday activities that affect the environment” and start reading some appropriate articles for more ideas.Remember to use reliable sources from the Internet. There is much misinformation out there and finding reliable information can be difficult. The best sources of reference material for your presentation are peer-reviewed, scientific journals found in the CSU Online Library databases. Click here for a biology research tutorial that demonstrates how to locate library resources relating to biology. You also can find reliable statistics at organization websites listed in Unit VIII under the section “Combat Climate Change.”Your presentation must address/include:
What everyday activity or product have you chosen to present? Why did you choose this activity or product? Why is it important to you and our society?
Connect the activity/product to its impact on the environment and/or climate change. How does doing the activity, or making the product, use natural resources, disrupt habitat, impact wildlife, or affect the environment in other ways?
Report data and statistics, with reliable references, on how this activity/product affects the environment. Remember to include appropriate, relevant graphics and to explain them in the speaker’s notes (see below)!
What can people do to decrease the activity/product’s impact on the environment? Be sure to do some research on this.
Be sure to follow the formatting and guidelines provided below:
Include substantial and detailed speaker’s notes that include what you would say in an actual presentation. The speaker’s notes also should reflect the depth of your research. Each individual content slide must have speaker’s notes. They are to be typed in the space below the slide, which is entitled “Click to add notes”. Note, you do not need to record audio files.
Use bulleted information on slides (the best practice is to use no more than 5 bulleted lines per slide and no more than 2-3 lines per bullet). Remember, the bulk of your presentation will be in the speaker’s notes below, not on the slide.
You must include 5 or more images in the presentation. Visual aids include photographs, diagrams, graphs, and data tables that provide content and/or explain results/findings. Although 5 is the required minimum, it’s recommended to include an appropriate and relevant image on the majority of all slides to enhance the aesthetic. Think about your audience and what would be helpful for them to visualize your topic and keep them interested and engaged.
When searching for appropriate and relevant images, try typing the subject into a search engine and click “images.” For your presentation, you are allowed to copy and paste images (with proper references). However, you are not allowed to copy and paste content, such as text and verbatim data tables. As much as possible, your presentation needs to be in your own words and in-text citations need to be included on slides or within speaker’s notes throughout.
Include 3 or more reliable references. At least 1 reference must come from the CSU Online Library. Other appropriate references may include .gov, .edu, or .org websites. You must use correct APA formatting for full references and in-text citations.
Include a separate title slide that includes your creative title, name, class, and instructor, and a separate reference slide with full references properly cited in APA format.
Include 11-15 content slides. Please note: your title and reference slides are not considered content slides and they do not contribute to the total content slides in the presentation.
Use an appropriate font and background for your slides. Try to avoid using plain black text on a white background, but also avoid using colors that are visually difficult to see (such as yellow text on a light background) or that are unpleasant (such as red text on a yellow background). Think about font size (not too big or small) and type (something easy to read, e.g., Arial and Calibri). Strive for a pleasing, visually appealing appearance.
Use correct APA format for references and citations, and use correct grammar and spelling.
Upload the presentation to Blackboard as a .ppt or .pptx file. Note that files submitted in other formats (e.g., pdf) often do not display speakers notes and your presentation will be graded accordingly. All presentations will pass through SafeAssign prior to grading.

What does it mean for a virus to “mutate”

There are few individuals in the world who have not been impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19).
For your initial post, do some research on coronaviruses and then share what you learn about how a typical coronavirus compares to COVID-19. What does it mean for a virus to “mutate” and what could this mean to the process of developing immunity? Many people have chosen to get vaccinated while others have not. What do you think are the benefits of getting vaccinated and are there any scientific or medical reasons (exclude personal or religious reasons) that could serve as reasonable contraindications to being vaccinated or that would justify prolonging this medical intervention?

GMX email-| +1.8O5.738.61OO |- TECH SUPPORT ̫””NUMBER GMX plans to cease its status as “carrier-of-last-resort”. The company complains about how horrible it is to be the last choice for customers, and has began to warn builders that, if they choose to start with another company, they had better let their home buyers know that GMX won’t be available should the consumer want to make the switch.
Let me make sure I understand this: GMX is letting people who won’t care who provides the service in three years know that they are going to refuse to serve someone who actually wants them. Or, even clearer, GMX is telling consumers to shove it, we don’t have to help you.
I am interested in this for several reasons. First, my husband has worked in the telecommunications business for years before forming his own low voltage wiring company, Redd Infinity. So, although we are no longer in that field, we still maintain interest. Even better, however, I am a defunct GMX customer who, after sitting on hold with them for three hours, called Comcast on my cell phone and switched my Internet to the cable company, rather than dealing with GMX’s shoddy customer service (this came after several problems over the course of a year).
Most interesting of all, however, is my perspective as a small business owner. I concede that there are some customers we just don’t want. Chief among those are the price surfers – those who are most concerned with price (research notes that less than 10% of customers list this as most important – the rest search for quality and service). Basically, you can never make someone who cares only about the bottom line happy, and if you have tried several times – and I highly encourage you try to win them over with your superior service and products – then you may as well give up. As soon as someone underbids or undercuts you, they will be gone.
But GMX isn’t waiting to be undercut. Instead, they are taking potential customers who have no role in the decision-making process and saying, “Sorry, folks, we won’t be offering you service.” I have to tell you, if I move into a new neighborhood and the folks one block over have service, but GMX tells me they will not now or ever offer service because the builder didn’t use them – not only will I smile and say, “Great, thanks for keeping my wallet out of your grubby paws,” I will go on to tell everyone I know that GMX is exacting its revenge on the consumer. I will be persuasive. And so much the worse if I have been a long-time customer in good standing.
I understand that GMX is here to make a profit. We all are. But by pointing randomly at people and saying, “Sorry, we will never serve you, due to decisions you didn’t even make (other than choosing to buy a house in the ‘wrong’ neighborhood,” well, they make me wonder what their plans for the future are. If I were a builder, I’d start building to spite them.
In the meantime, all that worry I had about monopolies with the merger of GMX & AT&T, well, I guess they are unfound. Never mind that these small companies will have to take the leavings of whatever business they can scrounge up. Now is the time for small telecommunication companies to run to the builders with the article or letter in one hand and a plan in the other. “Let’s kick GMX where it hurts,” I’d say. As a telecommunications business owner, I’d be glad to know that GMX can’t swoop in and steal away all of my customers like they’ve done thus far. And as a builder, I’d flaunt the fact that GMX refuses to do business with my neighborhoods. Maybe put up a huge sign: “GMX doesn’t want us, and we don’t want them!”
Seriously, this provides an edge for the small phone companies. Those who move now, especially in Georgia and Florida, where the law will be taking effect, stand a chance of surviving the forthcoming monopoly wannabe. My cheers go out to the little guy – I think you can make it!
