Social Psychology deals with the context of the environment, including others, as it relates to behavior, emotion, and choice. This field of study also overlaps with evolutionary psychology and the fears and emotions associated with social exclusion, which is considered to be a main factor underlying fears of public speaking.
the following questions:
How does your understanding of social psychology influence your ability to create a video or presentation that you know others will watch?
How will this influence your public speaking in the future?
How will it influence how you see others publicly speak or perform?

It’s highly recommended that you look through each section of this course outlin

It’s highly recommended that you look through each section of this course outline and understand the instructions before starting to write your paper, as well as completing all assigned readings. Having an overall understanding of the factors and steps involved in formulating a good research question and writing a research paper that supports your thesis statement will make this project much easier, and you’ll get more out of it once you’re finished.
Once you have a clear understanding of the material presented in this course, you’re ready to start writing your research paper.
The first step will be to pick a topic, as previously discussed. Choose a topic that you find interesting, one that’s current enough to have relevant research resources, and one that’s broad enough to provide opportunity for research but not so broad that you can’t formulate a specific research question.
Once you have chosen your topic, start researching and become familiar with basic terms, ideas, questions, and issues related to that topic. From that topic, form a more focused area to research, and a question that will guide your research. Once you’re satisfied with the quality of that research question, form a hypothesis, or answer to your research question, and begin the process of writing your paper to answer your research question and support your hypothesis.

Some pathogens can decimate specific populations of animals if untreated. Some do not adversely affect host animals, but can make human beings very sick. Because of this, habitat and facility sanitation is paramount, but even cleaning agents can be a potential threat to human and animal health! First, choose a dangerous pathogen of note in the field of animal care, whether a bacteria, virus, or disease process. In a 3-4 page paper, discuss how contamination occurs, who it affects, and which cleaning agent is used in conjunction with it when disinfecting or preventing outbreaks. Include any contraindications to human and animals there might be for the cleaning agent you chose. Finally, include a statement about how you can apply this information to utilize proper animal sanitation practices in your future career.
Your paper should follow the formatting guidelines in the Course Project (Font should be 12 point and line spacing single spaced or 1.5 spaced, or “at least” – spacing, and references in APA format).

Explain the use and benefits of veterinary software programs in practice.
Report the pros and cons of different programs.
Categorize and examine the features of various programs.
Evaluate your research to determine which programs may provide the best service in a veterinary practice.
Instructions
Many veterinary clinics and hospitals rely heavily on computers for day-to-day operations. Computer software companies are constantly developing and upgrading programs for use in veterinary medicine.
Imagine you’re the head veterinary technician working in a multidoctor veterinary practice. The practice owner is considering upgrading his or her outdated invoicing software and paper medical records, wanting to replace them with veterinary management software that can perform a wide variety of management functions.
The practice owner wants each member of the veterinary team to gather information on two different brands of veterinary management software. Each team member will compile his or her information into a written report, which will be given to the practice owner and practice manager to help them make their decision.
As the head technician, you’re given the first choice on which software brands to research. Select two different brands of veterinary management software. Research each software brand, paying attention to the items in the following list, then write a research paper that compares and contrasts the two software brands, including (but not limiting your writing to) the following information:
Names of the two brands of software that you’ve chosen, and a brief description of each of them
Information about the companies who make the software
What are some benefits for a practice using a software program?
List office features and functions, as well as pros and cons of each software package—what does each program do, or not do?
How are technical support issues handled?
How is loss of data prevented in each type of program?
Is this a cloud- or server-based program? What hardware or software might be required?
Is training provided? In what ways?
Are laboratory and imaging results imported? Provide details on those that are compatible with the software program being discussed.
