Humans are naturally inquisitive and have always asked questions about the world

Humans are naturally inquisitive and have always asked questions about the world around them. Many questions could not be answered due to a lack of available technology, but many others could be answered through the process of trial and error. Over time, the way humans ask and answer questions about the natural world was developed and shaped into what is now called the scientific method. It allows scientists to conduct research in a systematic, organized fashion.
As humans make new scientific discoveries, they are able to develop additional technologies. For example, historically people used the bark and leaves from the willow tree to treat fevers and pains. This was a traditional medicine that people shared with one another via word of mouth. As technology advanced, the materials from the willow tree could be analyzed in a lab and the components could be studied to see which natural chemicals were responsible for reducing the fevers and pain. Research showed that the willow tree contained a form of salicylic acid that gave it its’ healing powers. This scientific research led to the development of the aspirin we use today which is now mass produced (and that you have probably taken at some point in your lifetime).
You depend on many technologies throughout your day that make your modern life possible. In this assignment you will look at some of these technologies and the scientific discoveries that made them possible. You will evaluate both the negative and positive impacts of these discoveries. You will also broaden your scope to look at how different cultures with different levels of access to technology approach the same problem – health care.
Part I Science in your personal and professional life
Think about your day from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep.
List four technologies that you rely on and would find it difficult to get through your day or night without. Discuss any negative impacts these technologies have on your life, society, and the environment.
Think about your day from the time you wake up to when you go to sleep. Describe the one scientific discovery that you think is the most important for making modern life possible.
List as many negative and positive impacts you can think of that this scientific discovery and the technologies that it allowed to be developed may have. Evaluate and discuss if the positives outweigh the negatives overall, or whether the negatives outweigh the positives.
Part II Science and technology in a multicultural world
Many research programs around the world focus on the discovery of cures to ailments from cancer to mental illness. Modern society invests a great deal of money, and time while pushing the boundaries of modern technology to develop new cures and improve existing treatments.
Review the Unit 9 Assignment Resources.
Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to the westernized high-tech research approach to medical treatment.
Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to using traditional medicine as an approach to medical treatment.
Are there benefits to having multicultural approaches to medical treatment? Explain your answer.
Could these two cultural approaches both be improved by drawing upon the other? Why or why not?
Discuss any challenges there may be in combining these two different cultural approaches to treatment that have a very different level of reliance on scientific research and technology.

Review global news and find an article that discusses a relationship between a single, specific microorganism and the health of the environment where it is found ( this may include positive or negative impacts) Review posts already made by your peers. Repeat topics will not count, so make sure that you do not choose a topic your peers have discussed already. ** You may Post the first 2 steps (One sentence description of the issue and APA citation) to claim so that someone else does not post a similar topic while you are preparing your post. You can then go to your original post, edit it, and add the remaining parts of your post. Your final discussion post should be numbered or bulleted and include each of these sections in order: One sentence description of the relationship between the microorganism and the environment. APA citation of the article your read Description of the organism discussed in the article Summary of the relationship, the organisms that are affected, and the impact of the microorganism If possible, provide steps taken to mitigate or improve the relationship

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and their 14 Grand Challenges go hand-in-hand with our vision to engineer a better world for all humanity. Engineers and computer scientists are challenged to solve these problems in order to improve life on the planet. Learn more about the NAE Grand Challenges at http://engineeringchallenges.org and tell us which challenge is most important to you, and why.
Can you go to this website and pick one challenge and answer why it’s important please? I think “engineer better medicines” is the most important, but it’s up to you to answer.
Thank you.

This is the power point instructions:
Assignment: You are to present a local environmental issue or problem, solutions to the problem, the costs/benefits associated with the solutions to the problem, and a determination of the best solution, based on your analysis of the costs and benefits. Be sure to not make your topic too broad. It should cover a specific town or area, not the entire world or a country, but does not have to be the particular town or area you live – it can be anywhere in the world. Please stay away from global warming issues. This is an extremely difficult area to narrow down locally and present reasonable solutions. It is simply much too broad for this type of presentation.
As an example, runoff from a coalmine may be contaminating the groundwater of a nearby town. A solution to abating the contaminated groundwater could be to shut down the coalmine, but at the cost of everyone losing their jobs. A benefit to this solution could be clean drinking water for the community.
There are a host of other costs and benefits associated with the solution to the above example. There are also many alternatives for solutions, none of which would make everyone happy. It is your job to find these costs and benefits for whatever solutions you choose. Then, analyze each solution’s costs and benefits to determine which is the best solution. Remember when considering costs and benefits, they go far beyond dollar values (e.g. loss or gain of jobs, land use, recreation, convenience, public health, habitat loss or gain, pollution, etc.).
Include a slide with the title of your presentation, then an introduction slide describing the environmental problem. The main body of the presentation should describe the solutions and the costs/benefits to the proposed solution and give recommendations based on your cost/benefit analysis. Be sure to use APA style citations and include a reference slide.
Tile slide and introduction: title slide and 2 introduction slides with clear focus on local topic. Student demonstrates a definite understanding of the problem.
Solutions: Includes 2 solution slides describing 2 clearly written solutions to the problem. Student demonstrates a definite understanding of the solutions.
Cost Benefits: Student includes 3 cost/benefit slides with at least 4 costs and 4 benefits associated with both solutions.
Demonstrates a clear understanding of the costs/benefits
Recommendations: Includes 1 recommendations slide with a clear, concise argument for the recommended solution. Argues for better solution based on analysis of costs and benefits.
Reference and Citations: Includes references slide with correct APA format and 5 or more sources. Appropriately uses in-text citations for all quotes, paraphrases, graphics, and data.
