Rousseau, Discourse on the Origin of Inequality
1. Explain the two notions of self-love presented in Rousseau’s Discourse on the Origin of Inequality. (made sure to see Note XV on p. 218)
a. Explain what Rousseau means by the terms amour de soi-même (self-love) and amour-propre (vanity). While both terms can be translated as “self-love”, the first is translated as “self-love” while the second is translated as “vanity.” These are two forms of love or desire. Make sure to explain the differences in the nature of the desire, including the object and magnitude of each type including issues of self-sufficiency and dependence, the role of “ideas of merit,” and the role of comparison and competition.
b. One form of self-love is considered good and leads to human happiness, while the other is considered bad and leads to unhappiness and misery. Which is which? And, why is one good and one bad?
c. If the origins of political, social and economic inequality reside in the historical transformation from of eros or self-love, from amour de soi-même to amour-propre, explain how Rousseau believes this transformation occurred. What does Rousseau identify as some of the key physical and psychological developments which caused this transformation?

1500-2000 Words, Double Spaced, 1 Inch Margins on all sides, MLA Format essay which will include a Works Cited Page.
You must include 6-8 scholarly sources. You may include only one source that comes from a non-peer reviewed source like a magazine or periodical.
Background: For our final unit, we have discussed the topic of bias and how it shows up in our everyday lives. Many people are divided on so many issues, and everyone is concerned with uncovering any biases that might lead to change in laws and policies throughout the country.
Context: California is one of the many states that proposes a diverse offering of state laws that affect their citizens. Some of these laws pass by an overwhelming majority, while others do not. The results signaled to the voters that we might still need to have some discussion about how and why laws are passed in certain communities.
Prompt: For this final essay, you will write an essay examining any of the many controversial laws that are sweeping our country. For the essay, you will write a well thought out descriptive essay based on the research that you found that answers the following:
1. What is the basic summary of the law? Describe the law
2. Provide a thesis explaining your arugment for or against this law and why.
3. Provide the detailed description of the biases that are suggested in the passing or dismissing this law. (Your essay MUST include a counterargument paragraph)
4. Examine the pros and cons and provide a balanced argument about the law within the body paragraphs (You must included evaluated research from credible sources)
Below is a list of controversial laws/propositions to consider for your research topic:
Abortion Law (Texas)
Gender Neutral Bathrooms
Transgender Athletes Rights
Early Voting Rights
Federal Minimum Wage
Federal Marijuana Legalization
Below are some Exploration & Planning Questions to Get You Started:
How was the proposition written? Who sponsored or paid for contributions to certain initiatives.
Who benefits from the law? Who does not benefit?
Should this law pass or not pass and why?
What biases are evident in the implementation of this law?
What if any is the solution to this law if it did or did not pass? Any alternatives?
The essay should be at least 5-7 pages, have an arguable thesis, incorporate detailed support, use polished expression, follow MLA format, and include a Works Cited page.
The body of the essay should include support and quotes from sources. At least 8 Quotes
Must include at least Four Outside Sources from a Scholarly Journal, Book, or Periodical.
Use the They Say, I Say templates section to introduce and analyze points; summarize texts; and incorporate, explain, and analyze evidence.
Include a counterargument(s) to your thesis and offer your refutation or concession in response.
2. In the first paragraph of your essay (140 words approx.), summarize the article. Follow all summary writing rules you learned in this course.
3. In the second paragraph (50 words approx.), state the author’s thesis, and state your purpose, i.e., to analyze how the author supports his or her thesis through one, two, or three rhetorical appeals. You should name the appeal or appeals.
• If your purpose is to show how the author supports his or her thesis through one appeal, then you will discuss how the author does that by deploying a specific technique for that appeal in the next three body paragraphs (each 220 words approx.). For example, if you want to explain how the author supports his or her thesis through logos, then you will analyze one logos strategy in paragraph 3, a different logos strategy in paragraph 4, and yet another, different logos strategy in paragraph 5.
• If your purpose is to show how the author supports his or her thesis through two appeals, you can analyze one appeal in one of the body paragraphs, and the other appeal in the other two body paragraphs.
• If your purpose is to show how the author supports his or her thesis through all three appeals, you should analyze one appeal in each body paragraph (for example, ethos in body paragraph1; pathos in body paragraph 2; and logos in body paragraph 3).
-Each body paragraph (3-5) must follow the identify- explain-evaluate principle of analysis as you were required to use in the previous critical analyses; each body paragraph must develop the appeal strategy fully, clearly, and coherently with specific examples from the text.
-Be sure to cite research on your topic in APA style in paragraphs 3-5; include a References list.

4. In the final paragraph (50 words approx.) re-word the author’s thesis; summarize your main points; and clinch.
4 page creative satire based on Decò 2.0.
1. Write your own chapter of the book.
Capture Miami in your own personal satire. It’s you as the main character..
Do something or go somewhere Miami-related. Something that you would do, maybe down here in South Miami or Kendall.
A holiday gathering. A trip to the roller rink or Santa’s enchanted forest. Anything.
But make sure you interact with at least one character from the story..
2. Tell a story though one of the characters. Put yourself in their frame of mind and write away.
If you have another idea, go for it. I won’t say no –but it needs to be a satire and connect to the materials or themes satirized in Decò 2.0.

After carefully reading and annotating the two articles “A Hidden Hellscape” and “This City’s Opioid Deaths Have Plunged–Can Other Cities Learn from It?” consider the following question: Do you agree or disagree with Goodnough’s suggestion in her title, the suggestion that other cities could learn from Dayton? Specifically, what do you think Philadelphia could learn from Dayton, Ohio if anything?
Overview: introduce the essay’s topic
Summary: sum up the book, article, and/or news clip
Thesis: present the main idea and makes a strong argument
Topic sentence: make a strong argument to support the thesis
Reasons: further explain your topic sentence and argument
Context: explain what’s happening in the text so the evidence makes sense
Evidence: a quotation or paraphrase of an exact line from the text, with correct signal phrase and citation
Restate: repeat the evidence in your own words to make sure it’s clear
Connect: tie the evidence back to your argument
Ending sentence: tie it all back to the larger picture
Wrap up: restate the key arguments (thesis and topic sentences) of the essay
Concluding thought: final thoughts that dig deeper, show why it’s important
Grammar, Language, and Formatting:
Grammar: sentences should be free of fragments, run-ons, comma splices, and subject-verb agreement errors. Few other errors should be present.
Language: language should be strong and engaging and include strong vocabulary
Format: an essay should be typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, no extra spaces between paragraphs, and include a correct heading and title on the first page.
Works Cited: a Works Cited page should be included at the end of your essay.
How to Begin:
First, locate the sources you have selected to work with for your Expository Essay. Remember: you will use the one source from Week 5 that pertains to your chosen topic. Then, you will read an additional source depending on the topic you have chosen.
If you choose to write about social media, your second article is: “Benefits and Costs of Social Media in Adolescence,” (Links to an external site.) by Yalda T. Uhls, Nicole B. Ellison, and Kaveri Subrahmanyam
If you choose to write about the marriage trend, your second article is: “Middle Class Marriage is Declining, and Likely Deepening Inequality,” (Links to an external site.) by Richard Reeves and Christopher Pulliam
Next, read and annotate (take notes, highlight, underline, pose questions, respond to) your source. Your goal is to ensure you understand the main points of your two sources.
Then, write the full APA reference for both sources using the APA Resources – 7th Edition module and begin writing your annotations.
How to Annotate:
Write two paragraphs of annotations for each source. The information included should be as follows:
Paragraph 1: Summarize your source. What topic is being covered? What is the point of the article? If a friend asked you to describe the article, what would you say? Remember – summaries are objective, meaning they do not share your point of view.
Paragraph 2: Reflect on the article. Is the author credible? Why or why not? How can you use this source in your essay? Has it changed your perspective on your issue? You will learn more about assessing source credibility in RealizeIt Module 6.
How it Should Look:
Review this example to see how a student successfully completed one source for their Annotated Bibliography (remember you are required to submit an Annotated Bibliography with two sources). Remember, your APA citation needs a hanging indent, and the entire annotated bibliography should be double-spaced.
Compare or contrast essay on two job opportunities or specializations in cybersecurity. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each one? research job placement #’s, salaries, etc…Are they equally good areas to enter, or is one superior to the other?
Compare or contrast essay on two books or two types of books. Which has had more impact? Is one superior to the other, or not?
Compare or contrast two artistic, literary, or architectural styles, or two political movements. Styles of anime or other animation DO count. What are the main similarities or differences between them? Which has had more impact (in the world)? is one more impactful or interesting than the other? Why or why not?
The last essay assignment in this class is due before midnight on Wednesday, December 8. In this essay you should analyze one or more of the poems we read in the class in the last few weeks. Read the full instructions for the essay here Download here. Note that if you want to get full commentary and feedback on the essay, you should try to submit it by midday on Tuesday, December 7; papers submitted on Wednesday will be assessed holistically.
As the instructions will explain in further detail, for this analysis you are welcome–even encouraged–to write a paragraph or two presenting your own personal/emotional reaction to the poem(s). You aren’t required to do so, but since poetry should work on us in ways that go beyond intellect or analysis, you can share your personal connections/reflections to the poem(s). Just know that at least half of the body of the essay should be analysis. Something like three paragraphs of analysis and a paragraph (or two) of personal reflection is a good goal.
You can write about any of the poems listed below. You can write about two if (and only if!) you’re going to draw clear connections between them in terms of theme, tone, or language; don’t write about two just to give yourself “more to write about.” Below is a list of the poems we discussed:
“My Last Duchess”
“My Papa’s Waltz”
“Those Winter Sundays”
“Theme for English B”
“Watching a Dog Fight at the New Haven Dog Park”
Need help with these assignments, I use C++. Thank you.
Declare and implement a BSTNode ADT with a data attribute and two pointer attributes, one for the left child and the other for the right child. Implement the usual getters/setters for these attributes.
Declare and implement a BST as a link-based ADT whose data will be Dollar objects – the data will be inserted based on the actual money value of your Dollar objects as a combination of the whole value and fractional value attributes.
For the BST, implement the four traversal methods as well as methods for the usual search, insert, delete, print, count, isEmpty, empty operations and any other needed.
Your pgm will use the following 20 Dollar objects to be created in the exact order in your main to seed the tree:
Also, create an output file to write program output as specified in one or more instructions below.
After seeding the data, perform your traversal operations in the specific sequence of breadth-first, in-order, pre-order, post-order, ensuring that output is written out to both screen and file concurrently.
Then provide interactivity for the user to add/search/delete nodes from the console after the data has been seeded into the application.
Perform adequate input data validation when reading data from the user into the tree – if any data item is invalid, ignore the data item and continue to next item but print a message to output (both screen and same output file) to indicate which data items were ignored.
Also, provide the user the option to print output of traversals or exit the program. Once the user selects the option to print data or exits the program, the data in the BST should be printed out to both screen and output file in all four traversal methods in the specific sequence of breadth-first, in-order, pre-order, post-order.
For submission – upload your BST, Dollar/USD and main code files, screenshots of console window and your output files only.
Derive a MinHeap class from the BST class of your Lab 4 code.
Define/Override only the Search/Insert/Delete methods in the new class.
Write a new main for this lab which:
Will only be a test program for the MinHeap.
Declares and creates a MinHeap object as necessary.
Declares and creates the Dollar objects as necessary.
Inserts the 20 Dollar objects specified in Lab 4 in the same order.
Performs all 4 traversals after the inserting the 10th and the last objects – in total there will be 8 outputs which should be clearly demarcated.
No user input is necessary, no data validation is necessary.
For submission – upload all class files from Lab 4 as necessary as well as your new MinHeap class and the main. Remember to also include adequate number of screenshots of the program execution.
