Prompt. Freud, in his case study of Lucy R., has this to say of chronic hysterical symptoms: “The situation that is created in this way then becomes impervious to change, since repression and conversion have removed the contradiction which would require that the affect be disposed of” (in Breuer and Freud, Studies in Hysteria, p. 123). What role do “repression and conversion” play in the creation of symptoms, such as Lucy’s smell of burnt pudding? How does this process then “remove the contradiction” plaguing the patient? And what does “affect” have to do with all of this? Do your best to put into words your current understanding of Freud’s theory of “conversion hysteria” and how the theory applies to the case history of Dora we are reading this week. Use specific quotes or page references to back up your points. Please cite specific evidence from https://www.sigmundfreud.net/studies-on-hysteria-pdf-ebook.jsp (pages 61-70) and the uploaded book and slides.

Green Infrastructure/Low Impact Development (LID)
To learn about innovative stormwater management solutions most commonly referred to
as Low Impact Development (LID)/Green Infrastructure. Onsite stormwater
management is an important part of site development and subdivision design.
Overview: Climate change is altering weather patterns and therefore resulting in more
severe and frequent storms, which overwhelm stormwater management systems. Cities
are requiring to adapt to climate change through green infrastructure techniques.
Students will prepare a (3) to (4) page report (excluding title page, appendix
and works cited) that answers the following questions:
1) What is low impact development/green infrastructure?
2) What are the advantages of LID techniques over conventional grey
3) Identify and thoroughly discuss three (3) types of low impact development
techniques that maybe used in a plan of subdivision, building design or on an
individual site design.
4) Undertake a site visit in your community or nearby community to find and identify
a green infrastructure example that corresponds to one of the examples
discussed above. Provide pictures of the example as appendix (attachment).
The assignment constitutes 15% of your final mark. Students will be assessed on the
following criteria (for weights of each item please review the rubric on the assignment
page on MyCanvas).

Assignment Instructions Use what is given in instructions no outside citation needed
Now that you’ve read about the importance of documenting when you use outside information, it’s time to put those concepts to use!
First, read this article titled As Computer Coding Classes Swell, So Does Cheating (Bidgood
There are six main qualitative research designs, which all serve specific research purposes. The six qualitative research designs include 1) case study, 2) ethnography, 3) phenomenological study 4) grounded theory study, 5) narrative inquiry, and 6) content analysis. For this discussion, you will find similarities and differences among the six designs, as well as determine which design approach may be suitable for your selected topic. As you learn about the six qualitative research designs, think about how you could potentially use one or more of these designs to conduct your own study based on your selected topic from Week 1.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion,
Read Chapter 8 of the textbook.
Choose three of these six qualitative research designs you are most interested in exploring regarding your topic.
In your initial discussion forum post,
List the three qualitative research designs you chose.
Discuss two similarities that these three designs have in common.
Discuss two or three ways that these three designs differ from one another.
Explain, briefly, how one of these qualitative research designs could be used to design a study related to your selected topic.
It is important to be able to locate the specific components that make up a research study or article in order to determine if the components are in alignment. “Alignment” here means that the components fit together and tightly address a particular issue, situation, or problem. For this discussion, you will find an article, dissertation, or ADP that describes a qualitative case study, and discuss how its issue, purpose statement, and research questions are all in alignment.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion,
Watch Qualitative Case Study (Links to an external site.).
Review the Sample Project Justification (Links to an external site.) annotated example to see the specific components that make up a research study and how those components are in alignment.
Locate a qualitative case study dissertation or applied research project in the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (Links to an external site.) database or an article describing a qualitative case study within the UAGC Library.
Download and save your article, dissertation, or ADP as a PDF file.
Consider reviewing Chapter 8 of the textbook.
In your initial discussion forum post,
Attach the qualitative-based case study you found to your discussion post.
Share the following three components of the case study you located:
issue, situation, or problem it addressed
Note: For some studies and articles, these components are easy to identify and are explicitly stated, while for others you might need to interpret the information within the study or article and write these components in your own words.
Once you have identified the three above components and included them in your response, discuss how each component is in alignment with the other components (e.g., how the research questions align with the problem statement, etc.). If they are not in alignment, explain how or why they are misaligned.
Based on the topic you chose for the Week 1 assignment, you will write a purpose statement and one or two research questions for a possible study related to that topic. Keep in mind that you are practicing as you draft these components and that for the final paper, which is your mini research proposal, you will have the opportunity to revise. Later in this course, you will practice drafting a quantitative purpose statement and research question(s). During the final week, you will decide which methodological approach is most suitable for your topic and choose to use either the qualitative version or the quantitative version of this assignment.
Prior to beginning work on this assignment,
Read Narrowing a Topic and Developing a Research Question (Links to an external site.).
Review the Guide to Preparing a Purpose Statement (Links to an external site.).
Consider reviewing Chapter 2, specifically the Guidelines for Writing a Purpose Statement and the Checklist Evaluating a Purpose Statement sections.
Based on the topic you chose for the Week 1 assignment, include the following in your paper:
Write one or two sentences that explain your topic.
Write a one sentence qualitative purpose statement that embodies the single purpose of your potential study. It should begin like this: “The purpose of this qualitative study is to [verb: determine, examine, investigate, etc.) [state the purpose of your study or project].”
Your purpose statement should align with an issue, situation, or problem related to your topic.
Write one or two qualitative research questions that align with your purpose statement.
The Qualitative Purpose Statement and Research Question(s) paper
Must include both components explained in the instructions and be relatively short.
Must be one to two double-spaced pages in length (not including title) and formatted according to APA Style (Links to an external site.) as outlined in the Writing Center’s APA Formatting for Microsoft Word (Links to an external site.) resource.
Must include a separate title page with the following:
Title of paper in bold font
Space should be between title and the rest of the information on the title page.
Name of institution (University of Arizona Global Campus)
Course name and number
Must utilize academic voice. See the Academic Voice (Links to an external site.) resource for additional guidance.
There are no references required for this assignment; the purpose statement and research questions are unique to you and your topic.
Prompt: A researcher was doing research to determine whether exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF)/ radiations was associated with breast cancer in women. By reviewing the county disease database collected within a single year in a U.S. metropolitan city the researcher discovered 16 women with breast cancer. A total of 544 other women were randomly selected from the county disease database. Women were given surveys with specific questions regarding exposure to EMF. Among women with breast cancer 5 reported no exposure to EMF; a total of 436 control women were never exposed to EMF.
1. Construct the required 2 x 2 table with numeric values indicating cases and controls.
2. Calculate the measure of association
3. Discuss and interpret the results obtained
4. If you (as a researcher) were to investigate a rare cancer in Chicago, where might you look for data?
5. What would be necessary, legally, and ethically, to be able to utilize this data set(s) obtained, as a researcher?
Cite at least two or more references to support the information you present. Needs to be in APA format.
