Background: In 1938, in Munich, the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain made a deal with Adolph Hitler allowing Nazi Germany to annex Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. Hailed as a hero for his diplomacy at the time, Chamberlain is now widely reviled for his policy of “appeasement” to Nazi aggression. Yet one year later, Chamberlain led Britain into war against Germany in defense of Poland once it became clear that appeasement had failed. By contrast, the US did little to halt Hitler’s initial expansion, and entered into the war only gradually, attempting, until attacked directly, to sway the outcome without going to war itself. Never again would the US remain so aloof for so long from such a momentous international affair. As such, the Second World War represents a turning point in American foreign affairs, and it is perhaps hard for us to understand why the US took so long to take effective action against the Axis Powers.

Instructions: After reviewing your Instructor’s Guidance and completing the weekly reading assignments (including those in the resource section above), please post a substantive discussion post of at least 200 words that examines the evolution of American foreign policy in the 1930s:What arguments were made in favor of isolationism? How and why did America’s isolationist stance erode entering into the 1940s? How did American foreign policy goals shape the American approach to the war?
Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and properly cite any references.
Nuclear medicine is a specialized branch of modern medicine that exploits the process of radioactivity for imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. Many imaging techniques inject small amounts of radioactive material into the body, which are then tracked by a sensing device specific to the type of radiation emitted from that material. Radiation has also been used to destroy diseased tissue, typically beyond the reach of standard surgical techniques.
Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, write a paper on nuclear medicine. Address the following:
- Explain the scientific and technical concepts related to nuclear medicine. Consider the following questions when you construct your response:
- What type of radiation is typically exploited in most nuclear medicine procedures?
- How are patients prepared for nuclear medicine procedures?
- What are the advantages and limitations of nuclear medicine?
- What ailments are typically diagnosed and treated via nuclear medicine procedures?
- Evaluate a minimum of three applications of nuclear medicine relating to any of the following topics:
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans
- Gallium scans
- Indium white blood cell scans
- Iobenguane scans (MIBG)
- Octreotide scans
- Hybrid scanning techniques employing X-ray computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine therapy using radiopharmaceuticals
Support your statements with examples. Provide a minimum of three scholarly references.
In America, many are comfortable describing ethics as follows: “Well, what’s right for me is right for me and what’s right for you is right for you. Let’s just agree to disagree.” This is an affirmation of what philosophers callindividual or subjective moral relativism. In this understanding of relativism, morality is a matter of individual feelings and personal preference. In individual moral relativism, the determination of what is right and wrong in a situation varies according to the individual. Moral relativists do not believe in natural law or universal truths.
Cultural moral relativism puts culture at the forefront of relative ethical decision-making. It says the individual must include the precepts of his or her culture as a prominent part of the relativistic moral action.
Lawrence Kohlberg, a prominent psychologist known for recognizing moral stages of development, takes it a step farther saying cultural relativists are persons stuck in the “Conventional Stage” of ethical development.
In your paper, please define individual moral relativism and cultural moral relativism in detail, noting how they differ from each other, their strengths and weaknesses, and give your position on Kohlberg’s stance on ethical relativism.
What aspects of ethical relativism do you identify and agree with? What aspects do you disagree with? Give a personal example that illustrates your stance on ethical relativism, describing how you made a moral decision in an ethical dilemma. Include at least two references to support your thoughts.
Instructions: Instructions Will NOT appear under future Modules, but the topic question will be updated each week (Instructions also listed under Syllabus, Part III, Prospectus)
- The “Discussion Question” exercises are for the purpose of integrating textbook materials with that of the other assigned materials for this class on a per Module basis.
- An important aspect of this Module Discussion is an additional exercise in preparation for the Midterm and Final
- Participation in the Discussion Question is a required assignment for all Modules. Go to Blackboard on the CSUB Home Page (http://www.csub.edu/) and CLICK on Runner Courses (Blackboard). You will sign in to the class and go to Discussion Board for theDiscussion Question. You will find a threaded bulletin board for each Module. This means that in addition to the Discussion you may also reply to your classmates’ answers.
An asynchronous format will be followed allowing “in-put” at any time during the Discussion period.
- These exercise are graded on a credit/no credit basis (5 points deleted for not participating for each Module). For my own personal needs I do informally score each submission as to quality of the response. If there is closeness within grade ranges, I use my scoring in deciding final grade between the close grade ranges for each student.
- Before answering the Module Discussion Questions, please read all textbook assignments and materials for the Module before formulating your answers. This is NOT a “shoot from the hip” exercise.
6. Also, each Module answer to the Discussion Question must include at least three paragraphs with five sentences in each paragraph for CREDIT.
7. Note that the due date for participating is Tuesday evening by 23:59pm.
8. If there are questions, let me know.
9. If you need help in this process, contact the CSUB Blackboard, E-Learning Services at 661.654. 2307.
The Question for this Module Discussion is in three parts:
(i) What is the purpose of applying law to business transactions and business entities?
(ii) At what point is appropriate to create a new law addressing a business transaction and business entities?
(iii) What is (are) the most significant ethical dilemma(s) pertaining to the life-cycle of a business transaction? Explain.
[REMINDER: Each Module answer to the Discussion Question must include at least three paragraphs with five complete sentences in each paragraph for CREDIT.]
Analyze the sentence to determine the main clause and the subordinate clause. Then choose the function of the subordinate clause.
