Question Description

ENG 315: Professional Communications:

"Reflection"

  1. Review a guide to writing cover letters, located at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/549/01/. Next, reflect on what you learned regarding the importance and structure of job application cover letters. Ascertain the key factors an employer may take into consideration when determining whether an applicant receives a job interview.
  2. Identify two (2) key skills that you learned during the course that you think will add to your communication effectiveness.
  3. Think about your goal established in Week 5's discussion. How well did you progress towards achieving that goal? What additional work must you do to achieve or expand that goal?

SOC 450: Solutions to Global Issues:

Getting Thirsty

Water covers 75% of the earth’s surface. Most of it contains high concentrations of salt and is unusable to developing countries for consumption or irrigation purposes because desalination is too expensive. Consequently, when a water source like a major river originates in one country and flows into another, the shared water source could become an issue of national security. (This means that if one country dams or diverts a shared river for irrigation purposes, it could reduce the amount of water flowing downstream to the second country). For example, nearly all of the major river systems that flow through Pakistan originate in India – or, in the case of the Indus River, in Tibet – meaning that India essentially controls Pakistan’s ability to grow food for itself.

For this week's discussion, think of the enduring disputes taking place between Jordan and Israel (Jordan controls the headwaters of the Jordan River as it flows into Israel); Turkey and Iraq (Turkey controls the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers before they enter Iraq); and between Ethiopia and Sudan and Egypt (Ethiopia controls the flow of the Nile River before it enters Sudan and Egypt). What concerns do these downriver countries (Israel, Iraq, and Egypt/Sudan) have over freshwater access?

HIS 105: American History after 1865:

Part 1: Post a Response

Between 200 and2016, the US experienced remarkable changes internationally and domestically. By any measure, the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, was a game changer. With that a long, still-ongoing “war on terror” began that meant military engagements overseas and increased domestic security measures. In 2008, remarkably, the US elected its first African American president, Barack Obama. He was elected to a second term in 2012.

Choose and discuss one of the following two topics related to American history under Presidents Bush and Obama:

  1. Discuss the Sept. 11 (2001) attack and its impact.
    • Describe what stands out to you (perhaps from memory) from the events of Sept. 11, 2001
    • Give two examples of events or changes since 9/11 that you attribute to that terrorist attack. In your view, what should we learn from this attack and our experiences trying to deal with it.
    • Identify the source(s) where you read about these free trade issues of that time.
  2. Discuss president Obama’s election and presidency. (Considering our many explorations of race relations and Civil Rights in our history, there is much that can be said of President Obama’s election and presidency, and it is still perhaps too early to evaluate fully.)
    • Identify two specific examples that you think were the most important developments of Obama's presidency.
    • Explain why you chose those two examples.
    • Identify the source(s) where you read about these changes of the early 21st Century.
    SOC 105: Society and the Media:

  • How serious are the current threats to the freedom of the press? Support your views with two or three reasons and/or examples. (Cite any sources you referenced.)

“Reflection”
A cover letter is a one-page letter that is included in a job application. It is always
important to have a cover letter in your job application unless there is a differing direction in the
advertisement that states otherwise. It is important to note that a cover letter should summarize
the resume, therefore, it should not be longer than one page. Moreover, it is important to note
that you should always use different cover letters for each job application so as to make sure that
your cover letters are tailored to the job that you are applying for. The length and the issue of
your cover let...
