Weekly assignment plus a final paper and a few discussion

This writing is for course: Economic Development and Nation Building in Native America Writing requirement and style (Pls read this carefully before you make up your mind): There are 7 short pages plus a final page. Each paper should be at least a full page in length, no longer than two pages, single space, using a font size of 11 or 12 with one (1”) inch margins all around. A central goal of this class is to develop an in-depth study of one indigenous community's economic challenges and to explore solutions to those challenges. Each of our weekly writing assignments is intended to address a component of the final study. As you think about your writing, please view it in the long term and how each subject integrates with previous written assignments. 1. For the seven short papers: Students are required to complete 7 (seven) short papers on an assigned topic. Each paper should be at least a full page in length, no longer than two pages using a font size of 11 or 12 with one inch (1") margins all around. 2) Final Paper: Students are required to complete a final paper on an agreed upon topic in order to demonstrate in-depth understanding of their subject. Each paper should be at least ten (10) pages in length, no longer than twelve (12) pages using a font of 11 or 12 with one inch (1") margins all around. Week one paper: Topic: Select an indigenous community / tribe / reservation / rancheria on which to focus for this course. Explain why you were motivated to select this community. Please give ample consideration to your selection as each week your writing assignments will build upon your examination of the various challenges faced by the tribal group you've selected. week 2 paper: Topic: Assess the conditions for community economic development activity. Identify the economic engines (what drives the economy) of your community. Include lapses (breakdowns). How do those engines contribute to a future envisioned by the community? Week 3 paper: Topic: Identify and assess the community capital (community cultural wealth) in your selected community. Innovate on how to recast perceptually negative community attributes into positive attributes. Week 4 paper: Topic: Construct a hypothetical economic development plan. Consider the equation: Our desired future + Our community values + Our community capital = A Community Acceptable Development Plan. Week 5 paper: Examine Writing Assignments from Weeks 1-4. THIS IS AN UNGRADED ASSIGNMENT. With the knowledge of your community, conditions for development, community capital endowments, and a general value-laden development model, construct an outline for your final paper. The goal for your paper is to assess the economic activities of your chosen community, then develop an innovative strategy to improve your community's economic forecast or build on their success despite a rapidly shifting political environment. The result should be a clean outline for your final paper that incorporates the work you've completed thus far this quarter. You don't have to turn in your outline but I would be happy to discuss your ideas with you. Week 6 paper: Topic: Without contributing significantly to large-scale environmental degradation, describe an innovative strategy for beneficial use of tribal natural resources or energy reserves. Or describe an environmental remediation project needed in your community. Week 7 paper: Topic: What is the potential for international investment in my community? Be innovative in suggesting connections that could be cultivated into transnational relationships. Week 8 paper: Topic: Explore opportunities for entrepreneurship or job creation through one of the sustainable development models presented in this week's lecture. Then, the final paper: Students are required to complete a final paper on an agreed upon topic in order to demonstrate in depth understanding of their subject. Each paper should be 10-12 pages using a font size of 11 or 12 with one inch (1") margins all around. About the due dates: You should be able to complete each paper on time.

The definition of chemical properties
As a student who studies chemistry, you should be familiar with chemical properties, or you won’t be able to get high grades. They are all about the important characteristics of any material that are evident when it undergoes different chemical reactions or changes. This means that you can’t observe chemical properties just by touching samples or viewing given materials because their structure must be changed to allow you to do that. Basically, these properties are obvious after or during specific reactions, and this means that they include any quality established while changing the chemical identity of a particular substance. It’s impossible to determine chemical properties only by touching or viewing specific materials because their internal structure should be affected to allow you to investigate them.
The main premises and constraints of functionalism
The theory I have chosen is functionalism, whose basis is the systemic aspect of culture, or what might be most properly selected as a "glue" concept of culture. I am however, deeply aware that no theory explains everything and every theory has its constraints, reason the grand theories all failed: phoning for complementarity in the theoretical frameworks and methodological assumptions that informs our research. This simple fact explains the constant progress of theory in anthropology from evolutionism using its unilineality to poststructuralist ideas today. In what follows, I will describe and illustrate the primary premises of functionalism, and spotlight the constraints of the functionalist construction. Functionalism was one of the initial anthropological ideas.
