The purpose of this assignment is to help you decide which scenario you want to address and to help you prepare for your research paper in Unit VII. Go ahead and choose one of the three scenarios (see Unit VII assignment and scenario list below) for your research, which must relate to how terrorism, genetic engineering, genocide operations, bio warfare, or
cyber terrorism may affect our efforts to mitigate future attacks globally or internationally, as well as the moral and ethical implications of the use of such weapons of mass destruction in a terrorist attack of this magnitude. Additionally, the paper must address the capabilities and design of future attacks as well as the strategies we must develop to prevent or diminish the impact of such attacks. You are encouraged to truly think outside of the box instead of just repeating previous efforts from terrorist organizations. From the reports of intelligence officers with the Central Region Command in Afghanistan, you can be assured that in addition to infrastructure attacks, terrorist organizations focus their attacks against educational and religious systems that they deem evil from their perspective.

Scenario Two:
You are the head of a Homeland Security Investigative Task Force assigned to mitigate threats or possible terrorist attacks against the port area of San Diego. This includes numerous U.S. Navy vessels as well as a number of oceanic freighters, local fishing vessels, and pleasure yachts. You have received a threat from an unknown source stating that coordinated attacks are going to be launched against military and civilian targets in and around the San Diego area. The threat alludes to the use of nuclear missiles launched from vessels off the coast of San Diego. The source of the threats remains unknown, but intelligence points toward North Korea and Iran.
Your job is to identify the probable source of the threats as well as mitigate the numerous scenarios of attack that could stem from the Pacific Ocean, the Baja, the roadways entering San Diego from all directions, or from within San Diego. No specific terrorist group has given any notice of an attack. You must identify all probable sources from which a nuclear missile could be launched. Since intelligence advises that neither North Korea nor Iran have long range capability, your search must be restricted to the immediate area. Additionally, all you know is that the attack is scheduled to occur sometime this month. Identify all possible sources that could launch a nuclear missile and determine countermeasures that will empower your personnel to defeat the attack or attacks before they occur. Your plan must include a worst-case scenario response plan to enable you to properly respond and deal with the blast effects from the attack should your personnel fail to stop the attack or attacks.

Also, for this assignment, you must include three sources that will be used for researching the Unit VII Research Paper. You are required to submit the scenario topic for your Unit VII Research Paper for approval. Provide a description of your topic and focus of your paper in the form of an abstract (at least 150 words) and provide a list of references you intend to
use in your research

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.

This is the work for an anthropology course:Secrecy and Statecraft. Here is some background information for this course:
This course explores secrecy regimes and cultures in democratic and totalitarian societies. It focuses on the issues of secrecy and power, state security, propaganda, conspiracy, censorship, control and surveillance, and resistance. By exploring various media from secret files to spy films, we will aim to understand how the secret regimes are constituted and how they interconnect with people’s everyday lives through policy and popular culture. We will produce secret ink and KGB reports and analyze most recent secrecy scandals. The case studies include the Soviet Union, socialist Eastern Europe, Central America, and the USA.


Part A: Define the terms and explain their significance in a short paragraph (5-7 sentences) (why is it important, why we have to know about it, what implications it may have, etc.) (5 points each). You will have to define 6 concepts. Please make sure to use the concepts in the related reading to define them. If you only provide the general definitions, you will not get points.


1. Nuclear Technoaesthetics (From Masco's reading)



2. Assemblages (From Masco's reading)



3. Conspiracy (From Borenstein's reading)



4. Covert Sphere (From Melley's reading)



5. Spectacles of Secrecy (From Melley's reading)



6. Doppleganger (From Verdery's book, “My life as a spy”)


Part B: Answer two essay questions (respond to all parts of the questions). 1-2 pages single spaced. Do not repeat information and use different examples in each question. (35 points each)

1. What is secrecy, how does it function, and how has it been used as a tool of war (K. Macrackis) and the state control (use examples from T. Melley, “Citizenfour” (film on Snowden), and “Lives of Others”(film in 2006))? Your answer has to show what have you learned about secrecy and statecraft in the first half of the semester. You can draw on all course materials in your answer.


2. Why did K. Verdery call her book “My life as a spy”? What did you learn about anthropology and ethnography from K. Verdery’s book? How did surveillance shape her research, writing, relationships? Who informed on Verdery, how were they recruited (was it possible not to be recruited?), why people informed on Verdery, and how Verdery and informers influenced each other’s lives? Why did she argue that the practice of anthropology is similar to spying?

Topic: How to interact with those who deal with PTSD and the Sounds of War. 

Work settings are strongly linked to social interactions, perceptions, and decision-making. For this assignment, you will compose a reflection paper in which you will consider how topics studied in social psychology influence these concepts in the real world.

To complete your paper, first, pick a topic you previously learned about in this course. Then, address the following points.
•    Define your chosen topic as it was presented in the prior unit.
•    Describe how your topic could be applied in a work setting. In your description, be sure to mention the similarities and the differences you would expect in applying your topic to the real world.
•    Would your chosen topic be perceived as beneficial or detrimental if you were in the role of employee? Why?
•    How would your perspective on the topic change if you were in a nonpaid position, such as a volunteer or intern?
•    Think about the concepts of behavioral economics. What is a rational course of action to protect (if a detriment) or promote (if a benefit) yourself, as an individual employee? How does this compare to actions that protect or promote the company at large? How could you balance the two?

Your response should be at least three pages in length. You must use at least one source as a reference
in your paper. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted
material must have accompanying citations. Please format your paper and all citations in accordance
with APA guidelines.

You are a recent immigrant who has moved to the United States to attend a U.S. university. Your family has never been to the United States, and you are excited to tell them all about it, in particular the fundamentals of the U.S. government you are learning about in one of your courses.

Compose a 2-page letter to your family in which you outline the fundamentals of the U.S. government. Be sure to include the following:

A brief explanation of the Constitution and its purpose. 
A brief explanation of two American ideals (e.g., democracy, liberty, equality, justice, freedom, or opportunity). This should include a definition and your understanding of what those ideals mean to the average U.S. citizen. 
A current event (from the last 6 months) that serves as an example of one of the two ideals you chose to explain. This will be the current event you selected in the Searching for Current Events About American Ideals activity in Week 4. 
A constitutional liberty that has benefitted/affected you as a student or a citizen in the United States. For example, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law that prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion. Title VII also applies to private and public colleges and universities, employment agencies, and labor organizations. So if you chose this one, in your letter you would identify this constitutional liberty and how it applies to you specifically. 
At least one quality reference cited using the Strayer Writing Standards. This should be the current event article you selected in the activity in Week 4.
