I uploaded the pdf article, its from Google scholar “Artificial intelligence in medicine.” by A. N. Ramesh, C. Kambhampati, J. R. T. Monson, and P. J. Drew. You can choose the two different summaries you want to do in the instructions I uploaded, whatever is easier. Thank you.
One of the traditional goals of epistemology—the branch of philosophy that concerns theories of knowledge—is to identify beliefs that are certain, beyond any doubt. As you will read in Unit 2, this pursuit is the major preoccupation of the famous philosopher, Descartes, who was not satisfied with Plato’s theory. Plato believed that only human reasoning could lead to genuine knowledge, beliefs that can be held with certitude. For Plato, of course, these supposedly indubitable beliefs concern the Forms—an ontological theory that many subsequent philosophers have rejected.
Accordingly, the question for you is: what, if anything, do you know with absolute certainty? On what basis can you justify this conviction? How might a skeptic challenge your belief?
A summary requires that you use your own words to clearly and concisely recall the key points of a written (or other form of) work for an intelligent audience who is unfamiliar with that work. A summary is NOT an opinion paper! Therefore, you should strive to be as objective as possible, accurately and fairly representing the original author’s major claim and supporting ideas in your summary. Of course, since you will be the one choosing what details to include and how to write about them, your summary will have some of your bias in, but it’s important to refrain from including any judgment in your summary writing.
Learning how to summarize a text is a valuable skill that you may use in other classes and the workplace. Summarizing allows you to use the work of others to enhance your own thinking and writing. You should read this summary handout before starting this assignment.
Reading for a summary
Before you write a summary, you must closely read and annotate the text in order to understand the author’s point. For your summary, you must read and annotate Wendell Berry’s “The Pleasures of Eating.” Use a method of annotating that works best for you! Some tips follow in the next section.
Annotating for a summary
When reading “The Pleasures of Eating,” take notes on both the content and the structure of the piece. Knowing what is being said in a piece is as important as knowing how the piece is organized. Also, in examining the structure, you distance yourself from the content, thereby making it easier for you to objectively present the information to readers.
Writing a summary
Your assignment is to write a summary of Wendell Berry’s “The Pleasures of Eating.” I ask that you draw on what you’ve learned from your textbook reading and class lectures and discussion so far. You should also use Chapter 4 about recursive reading and annotating effectively and the handout about how to write a summary.
Minimum of 1 full page. Maximum of 2 full pages
Double spaced, using MLA format
Follow the guidelines in the summary handout
You should utilize the systems thinking approach to analyze one of the following topic.
Topic of presentation-How to promote health and well-being in workplaces through environmental design.
You should submit one diagram in which all the components and their relationships to one another are shown. Also, you should submit a text in which they explain the whole diagram.
In your analysis, you should go as deep as you can. Here is an example of a shallow analysis:
Example 1: To reduce the environmental footprint in office buildings, we need to use materials that are sustainable.
The construction of any building can impact the environment in multiple ways. Among these are environmental pollution (water and air), consumption of resources (water, minerals, etc.), greenhouse gas emission, disturbing existing ecosystems, and so on. In Example 1, none of these factors are discussed. Here is a better example:
Example 2: To reduce the environmental footprint of an office building, we need to consider the following factors: (1) environmental pollution (water and air), (2) consumption of resources (water, minerals, etc.), (3) greenhouse gas emission, and (4) disturbing existing ecosystems. Office design can address any of these factors. For instance, the location of an office building in relation to the adjacent neighborhood is important. By locating an office in a neighborhood with diverse uses, people can address their daily needs (post office, restaurants, grocery shopping, etc.) within walking distance. Hence they do not need to use fossil fuels to get to a post office, for example. That way less amount of fossil fuel will be burned and consequently less amount of greenhouse gasses will be omitted. Less amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere can reduce the global warming effect and hence we can avoid the negative effects of global warming on the ecosystem. One example of the negative effects of global warming is the melting of glaciers. This can result in multiple negative consequences. First, as glaciers melt, the global sea level rises. Therefore, some of the cities that are built by sea can get underwater. The construction of these cities has had a huge cost on the environment and losing these constructions means that we need to construct new constructions. New constructions will result in an additional impact on the environment.
Second, as the glaciers melt, more surface of the soil will be exposed to solar energy. Since the soil is darker compared to ice, the soil absorbs more energy compared to ice. This will further increase the temperature of the atmosphere and accelerates the melting process of glaciers. As more glaciers melt, the global sea level will increase faster, and more built construction will submerge. This will further exacerbate the negative effect that was discussed in the previous point.
Example 2 is a better analysis because it traces a greater number of links in the chain of office buildings’ environmental impact. Of course, this analysis can be expanded much further. For example, we can talk about how placing an office building in a neighborhood with diverse use can encourage people to walk and how this additional physical activity can contribute to the health and well-being of people. In this assignment, you are supposed to go as deep as you can.
To understand a system, it is useful to create visual elements of various components and their relationship to one another. Thus, each team should create a diagram in which all the components and their relationships are shown.
An essay is also provided with this document. Make sure to read the attached document and also watch the videos that are provided in it. This will help you to refresh your mind on the systems thinking approach and also it introduces some tools that are necessary to complete this assignment.

Personal Narrative Essay
“Mother Tongue,” “Indian Education” are examples of personal narratives: a true life narrative told through a creative and descriptive lens. Using your own creative voice, write a personal narrative about a memorable aspect of your own life. As you relate your story, try to give your personal experience meaning for your readers. In other words, demonstrate how your own experience may be common to many others even as you reveal your story’s uniqueness. Try to pick a specific incident or stay focused on a specific theme rather than covering multiple ideas across your life. Remember to show the reader rather than merely tell. Incorporate dialogue and descriptive language. Consider the storytelling techniques in our own assigned readings, though you may create your own style as well.
Keep in mind: This is not a traditional essay structure as we will see for essays 2 through 4 in this class, but a descriptive, CREATIVE NONFICTION, that captures your experience.
1000-1,200 words (in Google Docs or MS Word)
Though you don’t need a thesis, your essay should have a clear purpose. Reveal through showing the meaning of your story.
In this chapter, you learned about Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory. Consider the many different behaviors that you engage in on a daily basis and identify one or two that you think you learned through modeling. In one to two paragraphs discuss these behaviors (only discuss positive behaviors!) and how they came to be modeled. Note: You must include textbook data regarding this theory in your response and cite it appropriately.

During the term, you should find an organized youth sporting event (must be a competitive game, meet, or match) to attend. The participants in this event should not yet be in junior high school…preferably younger than 12 years old. When dealing with youth sports from a sociological perspective, relationships become the primary focus of attention. As an outsider observing the event, you should take special notice of the topics we’ve covered in class (i.e. parent interaction, the emphasis on competition, etc.), and the following relationships:
• Player – Player (teammates, opponents, on the bench, etc.)
• Coach – Player
• Parents – Players
• Spectators – Players
• Spectators – Coaches
• Spectators – Spectators
• Referees – Players
• Referees – Coaches
• Referees – Spectators
• Coaches – Coaches
While observing, look for the following in the above relationships:
• How often do they interact?
• Who initiates the interaction?
• What is the content of the interaction?
• What is the impact of the interaction on those involved?
• How do players respond to or deal with adult control?
You might also think about the overall phenomenon of youth sports, by considering the following:
• What do players and spectators learn in connection with youth sports?
• Why are the games so important to many people?
• What ideas about masculinity and femininity are highlighted in connection with the sport?
• Do boys/girls attend? What do they do? What do boys/girls do who are not on the field/court? What do players do before, after, and between games?
• What do you think is being learned by the children who are playing? What about the other children in attendance?
• Are there any social dynamics related to social class or race and ethnicity during the event? Is it expensive to play this sport? How is the program and participation funded?
In order to make writing your paper easier, I recommend taking notes during the event which you can refer back to.
After observing the youth sporting event, you should write a 3-4 page paper discussing your observations and reflections on sociological issues within youth sports. As you write the paper, you should follow the below format:
a. Explain the event you observed. Provide details such as the age, gender, location, sport, etc. of the participants.
b. Provide an introduction and foundation for your observations and reflections. In short, you should provide a “road map” your paper will follow.
a. Discuss what you observed. Be as detailed as possible, giving specific examples and events. Be careful not to over generalize…if you wish to generalize, use specific examples to draw those generalizations.
a. Discuss your reflections and thoughts about the event. How does what you observed relate back to sociological topics discussed in this course? Did your observations surprise you?
b. Choose at least one of the three theories discussed in Chapter 2 of your text. Then, explain your observations and reflections from that theoretical perspective.
a. Provide a brief explanation of what you will take away from this experience.
b. Summarize and conclude your paper.
The Youth Sport Observation Project will be due during Week 6. The rubric below will be utilized in grading the Youth Sport Observation Project:
