Womans Rights

Women's activism in the abolitionist movement challenged the concepts of the "True Woman" and separate spheres in two fundamental ways: first, it moved women into the previously all-male public/political sphere; and second, it led some women to question their own subordinate status.

Your historical essay should use evidence from the documents provided to answer the central question, Which of the consequences of female activism do you think played the most significant role in leading American women to organize for women's rights--the movement of women into the previously all male public/political sphere or the willingness of some women to question their own subordinate status? Why?


Thesis Statement:

The thesis statement should be located and within the introduction to your essay. You may choose one of the following thesis statements to respond to the central question:

The evidence suggests that the consequence of female abolitionist activism that played the the most significant role in leading American women to organize for women's rights was the movement of women into the previously all-male public/political sphere.
The evidence suggests that the consequence of female abolitionist activism that played the the most significant role in leading American women to organize for women's rights was the willingness of some women to question their own subordinate status.
The body of your paper should use evidence from the six primary sources on the following pages to tell the reader why your chosen thesis statement is valid.



As you read through the documents, employ the historical thinking skills you have learned in class:

Sourcing -- Who wrote this document? What is the author's perspective? Why was this document written?

Design Report Of A Family House On Steep Terrain (Civil Engineering, Geotechnics

  1. Introduction

This assignment provides the opportunity for you to practice designing different foundation types under advanced conditions and researching the necessary standards and codes.

  1. Learning Outcomes to be assessed

1 - Design geotechnical structures to current codes under advanced conditions.

5 - Demonstrate understanding of the interaction between superstructure and substructure

3 Detail of the task – Family house on steep slope

This is an academic exercise based on the working information and constraints for a real geographical location.

You are appointed as geotechnical engineer to calculate and fulfil all requirements to build a family house on steep terrain. The house, designed by an architect, is presented in Figure 1.

 

Figure 1: Family house

The house has been specially designed for the terrain described below. Two boreholes indicated by V1 and V2 were drilled at this location, as shown in Figure 2, and the results are presented in Tables 1 and 2. This is only the nomenclature and it is expected that the geotechnical engineer will provide this information as borehole nomenclature according to the appropriate standard. The architect has determined that it would be safe to build the house on 8 piles. The piles are indicated by H01-H08. The distance between pile H01 and H02 is 20 m. The distance between piles H03-H08 is 3.6 m. The perpendicular distance between piles H03-H08 and piles H01-H02 is 5.2 m.

 

The load of the house should be assumed according to your preferences of the building material (bricks, wood, etc…). Consider variable loads if applicable.

The architect would like to sell this design to other locations around the world. As an expert in geotechnics, you should find one location where it would be possible to build this house and justify your selection.

 

 

Figure 2: Topographic map

 

The results from boreholes V1 and V2 are presented in Tables 1 and 2 and SPT was performed.

Table1: SPT results from V1

 

What you should hand in:

The level of the water table should be assumed where SC is indicated as wet.

Make use of the lecture notes and other appropriate references to estimate any additional parameters and correlation charts / formulae that you may need. The design should be based on Eurocode 7 and other current standards in use (British standard)

 

 

A report of no more than 2000 words (references, lists of content, figures, tables, etc are excluded), including hand-written calculations/typed up calculations and referencing appropriate to the Harvard format. The report should be submitted via Canvas.

Marking Scheme/Assessment Criteria

Presentation (10%)

It should be clear, concise and easy to read. It should contain all the vital information. Citations should be provided where appropriate in Harvard format.

Establishment of potential ground types/assumptions for site (20%)

You should provide the ground type according to the data provided in the assignment and any additional assumed geotechnical parameters needed for calculations. Provide the borehole nomenclatures and the cross-section of the terrain and all other information needed for the successful construction of the family house on steep slope. You should also search for a potential location where this type of family house could be built and justify the selection of the terrain. Focus on the ground type, only.

State any issues that could impact the design. State how this has influenced your choice of foundation and therefore the likely implications for the design of the foundation type.

 

Independent research (15%)

This requires you to demonstrate the extent of any investigation you have undertaken as to the standards needing to be followed to design the foundation accurately.

Detailed design (40%)

Use this section to specify the likely loadings the foundation may be under, the size, shape and nature of the foundation with calculations showing that the foundation will be able to support all the forces necessary to the appropriate European codes. Hand calculations should be shown and scanned into the document and either be referenced in the main body or be available to be checked in the appendices. A significant penalty on this section will be given for no hand calculations.

Reflection (15%)

How has your thinking developed over the assignment? Are there any other design options that may be viable? What problems may you encounter on site that could affect the successful completion of the project? Are there any ways to mitigate those risks?


ADVANCED BIOCHEMISTRY Questions

Question 1: The glucocorticoid receptor recognizes cortisol and other steroid hormones, which triggers its association with DNA and affecting the transcription of several genes. The glucocorticoid receptor (GRE) is upregulated in several types of cancer, notably various lymphomas. Accordingly, the GRE is an attractive target for treating cancer, as disruption of GRE binding to DNA would result in downregulation of the associated genes. (A) The consensus sequence for GRE recognition of DNA is provided below. Such DNA sequences may be selectively recognized by distamycin-inspired polyamides (see Lecture 3-1). Design a polyamide sequence using the three monomers (Py, Im, Hyp) below that could target the E-box consensus sequence (8 points). Hint: It may be useful to consult Dervan, Bioorg. Med. Chem., 2001, 9, 2215. GRE Recognition Sequence: 5′-GGTACA-3′ 3′-CCATGT-5′ (B) In order to assess whether or not the polyamide is successfully preventing GRE-regulated genes, a worthwhile experiment would be administration of the polyamide to lymphoma cells in culture and detection of transcribed RNA. In this case, reduction of transcripts of GRE-regulated genes may indicate successful disruption of its recognition of DNA. Briefly describe the steps necessary to determine whether GRE regulated RNA transcripts are affected by the designed polyamide, including any appropriate control(s). (7 points) Question 2: Staudinger ligations (the reaction between an azide and triphenylphosphine, see below) are a useful biorthogonal reaction. However, the reaction suffers from a slow second-order rate constant, often leading to incomplete reactions over timescales relevant (minutes to hours) for the covalent modification of biological molecules. One possibility to improve the reaction kinetic behavior is the development of catalysts capable of increasing the reaction rate. (A) Suppose you were tasked with generating an RNA catalyst (ribozyme) capable of catalyzing the Staudinger ligation reaction. Briefly describe the steps necessary to generate a ribozyme capable of catalyzing this reaction. For full credit, include a means of isolating catalytically active RNAs during your selection process. Hint: Recall the selection of a Diels-Alder ribozyme. (8 points) (B) Unfortunately, early attempts by your lab have failed to successfully crystallize or NMR characterize the threedimensional structure of the generated ribozyme catalyst. As an enterprising researcher, you are aware that at least a rough “solvent exposure,” map can be generated by reaction of the ribozyme with a SHAPE reagent like NMIA. Briefly describe how this process works. (7 points)

Question 3: Non-natural nucleobases have been explored as a potential means to alter the heritable information of living organisms or to potentially engineer novel function(s) into living cells. Consider the use of non-natural nucleobases in addressing the questions below. (A) Early research on the incorporation of non-natural nucleobases into DNA duplexes observed that including nucleobases into a short DNA duplex as a 5’-overhang led to an increase in melting temperature based on the base structure. Explain the trend in observed melting temperatures below, keeping in mind the physical interactions that govern biomolecule stability and that in regular dsDNA the bases stack on top of one another within each strand. (8 points) (B) Non-natural nucleobases have been proposed as a means to expand the genetic code of living organisms. This genetic code expansion can then be exploited for the incorporation of non-natural amino acids into proteins. Compare the utility of this method to (1) suppression of endogenous nonsense or “stop,” codons, such as the rarest nonsense codon UAG (Amber); (2) genetic code expansion through the translation of four-base codons (Chin, et al. Nat. Chem., 2014, 6, 393). Hint: Consider that the natural genetic code includes 4 nucleobases, with 3 in sequence per amino acid or 43 = 64 possible codons. Additionally, consider the potential permanency of “encoding,” non-natural functions and refer to the work of Romesberg, Nature, 2014, 509, 385. (7 points)

Question 4: The RNA interference (RNAi) pathway was discovered in C. elegans in 1993 and has since rapidly developed towards therapeutic applications, including the first approved RNAi therapeutic in August of 2018. Use your understanding of RNAi and its therapeutic applications to answer the questions below. (A) Compare and contrast the short interfering RNA (siRNA) and micro-RNA (miRNA) processes. In what ways are these two RNAi pathways similar? In what ways do they differ? (8 points) (B) Suppose you work for a pharmaceutical company developing an RNAi therapeutic. What considerations would you need to make to ensure proper selection of the desired single-stranded RNA (from a double-stranded RNA duplex) as the “guide,” RNA? What modifications would be made to the passenger strand in order to ensure that it is not used as the guide strand by RISC? How could you confirm the activity of your RNAi therapeutic in a cell culture model? (7 points)

Question 5: Gene editing technologies have significant implications for human health, particularly with respect to the potential elimination of heritable genetic disease. Use your knowledge of gene editing methods and DNA targeting to answer the questions below. (A) The use of CRISPR/Cas systems has greatly impacted genetic manipulation relative to previous gene-editing methods such as zinc fingers (ZFs) and transcription activator like effectors (TALEs). Compare/contrast CRISPR/Cas9 with ZFs and TALEs. Relative to these earlier systems, what is different about CRISPR/Cas9? What are the primary advantages of CRISPR/Cas9 for gene editing? (8 points) (B) Cas9 utilizes two domains to cleave target DNA. The RuvC domain (light blue, below) cleaves the unhybridized ssDNA, while the HNH domain (pink, below) is responsible for cleavage of the second DNA strand as its part of a RNA-DNA hybrid duplex (where RNA is responsible for recognizing the target DNA). (1) Based on the model below, propose two mutations that would inactivate Cas9 nuclease activity. (2) Propose a use for this nucleaseinactive “dead,” Cas9; you may consider fusion to an effector domain, but that may not be required for a practical use. (7 points)

Question 6: Below is information extracted from the crystal structure of E. coli tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase with tyrosine bound in the active site (PDB: 1X8X). Note: Active-site amino acids interacting with the bound amino acid are given by single-letter amino acid code and primary sequence position (e.g. D182 indicates aspartate at the 182nd position in the primary sequence). Using this structural information and your knowledge of protein translation, answer the questions below. Figure 1. Representations of tyrosine bound in the active site of E. coli tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase.

Left: Polar interaction map from PDB 1X8X from the RCSB protein databank. Blue dashed lines = hydrogen bonds; grey dashed lines = hydrophobic interactions. Middle: Space filling model of bound tyrosine (blue) from PDB 1X8X with nearby residues labeled. Right: Rotation of the space filling model of bound tyrosine (blue) at middle with nearby residues labeled. A. Suppose you wanted to engineer this synthetase to recognize propargyltyrosine (PpY, below) instead of tyrosine. What active site amino acid(s) would you mutate, and to which other amino acid? Briefly explain your choice(s). (7 points) B. Suppose you wanted to utilize your engineered synthetase to incorporate propargyltyrosine into a protein in response to a stop (TAG) codon during protein expression in mammalian cells in culture. Would this synthetase be suitable for use in mammalian cells? Why or why not? What other component(s) of the protein translational machinery would need to be engineered to accomplish your goal? (8 points)

Bonus Question (5 points): Peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) exhibit greater stability as heteroduplexes with DNA (i.e. PNADNA duplex) than does double-stranded DNA (i.e. DNA-DNA duplex). However, peptide nucleic acids lack charged groups, making them largely insoluble under near-physiological conditions in aqueous buffer. Provide (1) an explanation for the increased stability of PNA-DNA duplexes (hint: consider intermolecular forces). (2) Additionally, propose modification(s) of the PNA scaffold that could increase solubility without drastically reducing duplex stability.

Erin Brockovich Movie Review And Analysis

This assignment is broken into 2 part:

In the first part you have to : 1- Profile of Erin B with a particular focus on her behaviors that successfully led to the exposure of PG&E. (30 percent of the grade)

 2-If you were the company's CEO, how would you have explained the company's behavior and an eventual lawsuit to the shareholders? (70 percent of the grade)

In the second part, the professor wants to hear our thoughts upon:

  1. Erin's methods were effective but were they appropriate (ethnically)?
  2. What are the typical rationalizations individuals or corporations use when caught? In this question, I am looking for students to ensure they recognize unethical behaviors in real-time especially when the offender is explaining or spinning the circumstances. Use the movie situations to frame your point. For instance, you can step in the shoes of the PG&E CEO talking or rationalizing the lawsuit to shareholders. Attached is the assignment description for parts A and B. I believe that 3 pages would be enough for the first part, and one page for part B. Let me know if you need any further info:) Cheers.

Muslims In Europe: Promoting Integration And Countering Extremism

Two essays each one page:

Read the following article and answer the following question: Muslims in Europe: Promoting Integration and Countering Extremism, CRS RL33166, September 7, 2011, Skim only pp. 1-2. Read pp. 3- 9.

 https://fas.org/sgp/crs/row/RL33166.pdf The vast majority of Muslims in Europe are not involved in radical activities. However, events such as the 2004 and 2005 terrorist attacks in Madrid and London, respectively, that were carried out by Muslim citizens or residents, have raised the question of whether European countries have done enough to integrate their Muslim communities and prevent feelings of social exclusion and marginalization. Although not the sole cause of radicalization and terrorism, some experts believe that past failures to fully integrate Muslims into mainstream European society may make some Muslims in Europe more vulnerable to extremist ideologies. (page 2.)

Answer the following: Is lack of integration the key to terrorism? Are their groups in the United States or other countries that are not integrated and are thus at risk of radicalization?

 Read the following article and answer the following question:

 From Dawa to Jihad: The Various Threats from radical Islam to the democratic legal order. Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (AIVD), 2004. Read Introduction, Chapters I and II (pages 5 - 43).

 https://fas.org/irp/world/netherlands/dawa.pdf

The authors write, The various forms of present-day radical Islam share a common historical, sociological and (in part) psychological origin. The common basis for the many movements, organisations and groups stems from the dissatisfaction about and resistance against the political, economic and cultural dominance of the Western world shared by many Muslims all over the world.

 Answer the following: In Chapter 2 the authors describe three different types of Radical Islam. Is this helpful? Why or why not? In what other ways can we analyze or categorize Radical Islam?
