ATH 101: The Human Experience: Introduction to Anthropology
Race is a powerful and contentious topic in today’s society. How does anthropology, as a discipline, define race? Explain why it is difficult to use biological characteristics to categorize people into races.
Read Farah’s (2005) discussion of neuroethics, Neuroethics: The Practical and the Philosophical. After reading the article, pick one issue in neuroethics (e.g., brain privacy, use of neuroscience in marketing, using cognitive enhancers) and examine how ethical the research in this area is based on what you have learned about ethics this week. Be sure to summarize some research that has been done in this area to illustrate whether or not it is ethical, and also mention future ethical considerations that should be taken into account for this area. Your summaries should also include a discussion of the research methods that are being used. Your ideas should be supported with the module resources.
RESPOND TO Alberto and Brittany post
One way that I see quantitative comparison being used in my life is with my girl’s cosmetics business. Recently she order her custom lipglosses and eye liners. Her eye liners were a certain price for a minimal order of 500, and her lip glosses came in 5 colors with a minimal order of 100 per color. With us stocking inventory we had to know how much each lipgloss cost and how much we would mark them for her to sale. After last weeks launch, we only have 20 of one of the lipglosses left and 230 eye liners left. It was funny to me that our class this week was speaking on quantitative comparison, and then in my actual life I was working with my girlfriend on actual scenarios. Even with my job currently as an HVAC technician, we are requested to know fractions and percentages when diagnosing AC’s and trying to find the root of the problem. I also see quantitive comparison in things like cooking recipes and when looking at things I fix around the house.
I find that I use quantitative comparison a lot in my every day life. I use it when I am grocery shopping a few times a week, It helps me to make decisions on what size of certain items I need and what quantity will last me the longest until my next grocery. I also work in a doctors office doing billing and coding. I have to make decisions based on the quantity of certain procedures performed to ensure that these things are billed to the insurance companies correctly. I never really thought about how much I actually use quantitative comparison in my every day life until completing this discussion post. I use it quite often to make decisions in my life and these decisions in turn, make my life easier by ensuring that I have enough of everything that I need. I really enjoyed the discussion topic this week,
