Imagine your area is in a state of emergency and you are concerned about the balance of liberty and security as people try to return to their normal lives, recover what was lost, and rebuild what was destroyed.

Compose an email you could send to elected officials to voice your concerns. Use this Template. Your email should include positions on two of the potential issues related to civil liberties found below and an explanation of how you would plan to restore those rights after the situation has ended.

Write an introductory paragraph for your email that explains why rights are not absolute. Include how the Constitution safeguards and limits individual rights.
Imagine that the following situations have occurred in your community following the disaster. Select two of the following situations to address and evaluate in your email:
The government has determined that certain business must be shut down to reduce the spread of disease during a pandemic.
The government imposed curfews to prevent protests becoming violent and destructive at night.
The government suspended the right of habeas corpus (the right to see a judge after arrest to determine if imprisonment is lawful).
The government forced people to evacuate from their homes.
Citizens were denied the right to bring legally owned firearms to storm shelters.
The government made certain dangerous areas off-limits, which prevented residents from accessing their homes and personal property.
The federal and state courts postponed scheduled criminal and civil trials due to the emergency.
The government prevented the press from publishing graphic photos of victims of the natural disaster to protect the privacy of the victim’s family.
The federal government stated that local and state governments are solely responsible for the disaster recovery efforts and that it will not be providing assistance.
Once you have chosen the concerns you wish to address, compose a well-written response to each situation with the following information:
the Constitutional amendment that relates to the situation
arguments that could be made for or against the action that took place
your position on how to resolve the situation and the reasons you think officials should agree with you

Stakeholder Short Paper
Write a 3- to 5-page (double spaced) paper about a particular U.S. stakeholder and their interests in energy policy. It can be a private firm, an NGO, or even a government agency (just note that government agencies are often the hardest to effectively profile, since they're not officially allowed to lobby, and their orientation and activities tend to change based on who's occupying the White House). 
Who is your stakeholder? How big are they, and what do they do? What do you think they want from US Energy Policy? Have they spent any money to lobby on behalf of their energy interests (in other words, how you know what they want)? Have they made contributions to political campaigns? Do their interests surprise you?
Determining what your stakeholder wants can be tricky. The best place to start is to look at their website. Often your stakeholder will be pretty clear on what they want, but beware the dangers of greenwash! Virtually no website will say, "We want to weaken environmental laws so that we can make more money at the expense of society at large!" Looking at corporate websites, apparently EVERYONE is an environmentalist... It might be useful to look at what the company is actually doing, how large any clean investments are, etc. The comparison of what they say versus what they do, so to speak, is often interesting.
Make sure to include in-text citations as well as a bibliography to show your sources.

Violations of Miranda
Competency Addressed in This Discussion
Competency 1: Articulate how the rules of criminal procedure apply to a criminal justice practitioner.
In Missouri v. Seibert (2004), the Court held that giving the Miranda warning only after the police obtain an unwarned confession violates the Miranda rule. As a result of this decision, statements made after the Miranda warning is given are not admissible even if these statements repeat those given before the Miranda warning was read to the suspect. In an earlier case, Oregon v. Elstad, the Court admitted a confession obtained after the police gave the Miranda warning even though the suspect had previously made statements before the warning was given.

Imagine you are a police officer investigating a domestic violence case. You received a call that a man hit his wife in the face with a closed fist, causing injury. You arrived at the scene and locate the suspect in question. You handcuff him and put him in the back of your patrol car. You ask him if he hit his wife in the face. He states to you that he just "lost control" and did not mean to hurt her. He tells you that he is sorry for hitting her and will never do it again.

Once at the police station, your sergeant tells you to make sure you get plenty of information in the confession statement from the suspect to put into the arrest report. You provide the suspect with his Miranda warning and ask him to go into detail about the incident and him losing control. He tells you the whole story from the beginning and again states that he had no intention of hurting his wife.

For this discussion, locate a case on point with the Seibert or Elstad case.

In your main post:

Analyze admissibility of the suspect's confessions in the scenario provided before and after Miranda warning was given to the suspect.
Determine whether the ruling in the case you researched aligns or conflicts with Seibert or Elstad.
Articulate whether you agree with the court's rationale regarding the admissibility of statements made by a suspect in your selected case, and why.
Explore how you feel the Miranda warning would impact your decision making if you were a police officer.
Be sure to support your position with the case law you located.

IRB Issues and Response

Review the IRB scenarios to get a sense of potential issues that can arise either during the initial IRB or anywhere during the execution of your research plan.

Reflect upon these scenarios and carefully review your own research plan to identify potential IRB that have not been clearly addressed in your narrative. Use the input you have received from your peers and the instructor to identify IRB concerns and develop your analysis to address these issues.

Create a 3–5 page analysis of potential IRB issues in your research plan. Include the following:

Identify potential IRB issues.
Discuss vulnerable population and potential ethical issues related to a research methodology or strategy.

Evaluate potential research subjects and sites.
Propose alternative research strategies to address specific IRB issues.

In your conclusion, discuss potential IRB issues within your proposed research plan and include a mitigation strategy for your identified issues.
Additional Requirements

Use current APA style, format, mechanics, transitions and proper organization and structure.
Write with logic, flow, organization, structure, and in the scholarly lexicon of the profession.

(VERY IMPORTANT) The participants for this study are women with felony histories who have been out of prison/jail for a minimum of two years and have completed any community control sanctions (probation/parole). 

In most cases, women with felony histories who have been out of prison/jail would be considered a vulnerable population because they been in jail/prison and still have community control sanctions such as probation/parole officers and they are still on probation/parole.

BUT, my population of women would not be considered Vulnerable, because they are no longer involved in the criminal justice system, they have completed all community control sanctions and no longer have a probation/parole officer and they are no longer on probation/parole.

In the mid-1950s, the first study linking cigarette smoking to lung cancer was published. In the decades that followed, many other studies supported this finding and a host of other health-related effects attributed to smoking were uncovered.

Over the last few decades, cities and states have created local regulations prohibiting smoking in certain public places. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was given regulatory authority of all tobacco products.

Chapter 20 of your textbook begins with a comparison of two sources of inhalable nicotine: traditional tobacco cigarettes and E-cigarettes. Because E-cigarettes are a relatively new technology, less is known about the long-term effects of the firsthand and secondhand inhalation of vaping products. However, in recent years they have been treated and regulated similarly to traditional cigarettes. 

Your assignment for this unit is to create a 10- to 12-slide PowerPoint presentation that covers the following elements:

the anatomy and physiology of respiration (e.g., explain how breathing works);
the effects of the inhalation of smoke and E-cigarette vapor on gas exchange in the lungs;
specific diseases associated with smoking, both pulmonary and cardiovascular; and
lastly, based on what you know about E-cigarettes from the reading and your own research, defend or oppose the regulation of vaping products as traditional cigarettes.
You will need to cite and reference at least one article from the CSU Library databases as one of your sources of information.

Your textbook references Leonard White’s perspective in the article titled “Introduction to the Study of Public Administration.” White suggests that successful public administrators are effective at discerning public problems and providing effective and interesting solutions. Using CSU’s Online Library, identify a public (government or nonprofit) problem, and provide a narrative that reflects the practice and research of effective management.

Your scenario should reference a local, national, or nonprofit incident that requires a public fix. Examples include enlarging a public park, expanding a public library, adding extra wings to a hospital to accommodate increased patient loads, building a new terminal for an expanding airline, adding nonprofit services for low-income families, and increasing mentoring services that support youth programs. After choosing your incident, your essay must include the components listed below.

Provide some historical background.
Identify key stakeholders involved.
Identify the resources needed.
Explain what challenges were overcome.
Summarize the results.
Identify any continued monitoring or oversight that is needed.
Summarize the lessons learned regarding how the organization balanced institutional changes to solve the problem.
Ensure your essay is at least two pages in length but is no longer than four pages in length, is double-spaced, and uses 12-point Times New Roman font with one-inch margins. Section headings are also encouraged to help organize your paper.

Your essay must be written using APA format. Be sure to include a title page and a reference page, but please note that these will not count toward meeting the minimum page requirement. All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited. Title and reference pages do not count toward meeting the minimum page requirements.

Choose TWO of the three questions on 13th to respond to.  Be sure to develop at least one full paragraph for each number, and for the sake of clarity, number the responses that you chose to answer.


1. This documentary emphasizes that the current crisis of mass incarceration is directly tied to our country’s legacy and history of slavery. By showing how slavery shifted to convict leasing, to Jim Crow segregation, to the war on drugs, 13th argues that “systems of oppression are durable and they often reinvent themselves.” As Angela Davis stated in the film, “Historically, when one looks at efforts to create reforms, they inevitably lead to more repression.” What are ways you can end this cycle? What do you think are some of the factors that allowed this system of racial control to simply evolve and replicate itself for the past 150 years? How can you be more vigilant against institutional racism?

2. How does 13th characterize our criminal justice system and political institutions? How did this flm shape your understanding of the prison system? Was there a particular case or series of facts that altered or challenged any of your pre-existing views? Explain.

3. How much did you know about the war on drugs and war on crime before watching the film? Were you surprised to learn about the racial underpinnings of these legislative policies, and the active role of the state in criminalizing and targeting communities of color? What was your reaction after hearing the following quote from John Ehrlichman, one of Richard Nixon’s aides?:

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did
